Dr. Withers can fit a set of implant supported dentures right over dental implants. This type of bond is very secure, making implant supported dentures a preferred option over regular dentures. These implant dentures can be removed for cleaning purposes, but some patients may choose fixed implant supported dentures which work just like your permanent teeth.
Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures Include:
Ball retained dentures are also known as stud attached dentures and create a strong fit with a ball and socket mechanism. The base of the denture is designed with a series of sockets that line up with balls that are placed right on top of the dental implants connected to the jaw bone. This allows for an open palate denture and is less likely to slip and move. One of the biggest benefits of this type of attachment is that it restores the patient’s ability to eat and speak without difficulty.
Dentures supported by dental implants are a more secure method of replacing a full arch of missing teeth.
