Implant Supported Dentures

With removable dentures, it can be difficult to enjoy certain foods or to speak with confidence. Most denture wearers also report problems with fit and function. They often fear their dentures will come loose and cause issues or embarrassment.

This can all be avoided, however, when dental implants are used to anchor and stabilize dentures. This solution virtually eliminates troublesome denture movement while also making the dentures much more comfortable and functional.

Implant Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures usually feature a special type of ball-shaped abutment or attachment at the tip of the implant. A retaining component, usually an O-ring, is incorporated into the denture. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated, giving the denture much-improved stability.

What Are Mini-Implants?
Mini-implants are smaller, one-piece implants that combine the root implant and the abutment (the ball) into one. Like with standard implant supported dentures, the denture is fitted with an associated component that allows it to be attached securely to the mini implant. The Mini-implants are smaller in diameter than traditional implants and are usually used in cases where there is insufficient bone to support traditional implants.
