What Kind of Implants Are Available?
Currently, there are two main kinds of implant supported dentures available. First, bar-retained dentures, which involve placing at least three dental implants into your jaw. A metal bar runs across the implants and your denture will securely clip into place. This option is known for eliminating discomfort, rubbing and loosening.
The other option, ball retained dentures, attaches your teeth with a ball and socket mechanism. Implants are placed in the jawbone that individually snap into your denture. This option decreases slippage and restores your ability to eat and speak normally.
What Is the Procedure Like?
The first step involves a personalized consultation with Dr. Kenzik. Together, you will discuss your goals and the options available. Next, if you have enough bone to support implants, they will be surgically placed and you will be fitted with a temporary denture while the implants are allowed to integrate with the jaw. Then, in approximately 3-6 months, your permanent denture will be secured, providing you with a completely functional, secure set of new teeth! With proper care, they can last for years without needing to be replaced.
