How Can Dental Implants Support A Denture?
You can have the implant supported denture either in the upper jaw or lower jaw. Patients should not sleep with the removable dentures on. We also have Dentures El Paso, which are permanently fixed. Our dentist considers your preferences and needs when suggesting fixed or removable options.
How it Works?
There are two types of dentures which can support Dental Implants one is bar-retained and the other is ball-retained. Both the dentures need at least two dental implants. These dentures are made up of an acrylic base which will look like gums.

Bar-Retained over dentures
This Restoration Process Fort Bliss TX involves 3-4 implant placements and also the attachment of the customized bar. This bar provides rigid support to the denture through the clips that are attached to it. This restoration can be used for both upper and lower jaw. The denture can be removed and cleaned over night but patients should also brush the bar which remains in the mouth with the implants. The upper arch of the overdenture resembles the horseshoe design.
Through surgeries four implants will be placed on the lower jaw and healing caps may be placed on the implants. The stitches can be removed in 2-3 weeks. Once the bar is fabricated and fixed over the implants which have become an integral part of the bone the bar cannot be removed by the patient. The bar should be brushed and cleaned regularly as you do for your regular teeth. This bar provides the retention for the denture which will fit over the top of the bar.
These dentures are also known as stud attachment dentures and are designed with socket and ball mechanism. The ball and socket snap together for tight and snug fit and this allows for an open palate denture. The ball and socket are less likely to move or slip like traditional dentures so you can easily eat and speak normally. Ball-retained dentures are snapped on top of the dental implants in El Paso and provide the secure and tight fit.
