Implant Supported Dentures as Options for Denture Patients
Implant supported dentures can be offered in many ways to accommodate different clinical needs.
Chicago (I-Newswire) September 16, 2013 - Dr. Elseweifi of Bucktown Dental Associates offers several treatment options for implant supported dentures. These options can accommodate different clinical needs and can help patients stay within budgets. Implant supported dentures range from the most expensive fixed implant dentures to the least expensive mini implant dentures.
Implant dentures (also called implant supported dentures, overdentures or implant overdentures) are held in place by denture implants (titanium roots) anchored in the jaw. In contrast, a full denture simply rests on the gum and often needs a mild adhesive for retention. Similarly, a partial denture rests on the gum and hooks to the teeth by attachments called clasps.
Dentures implants preserve jawbone and prevent progressive bone loss. Bone loss causes collapse of the bite and change in appearance of the face. The implants support the implant dentures and retain them in place. In contrast to full dentures, implant dentures offer better force for better chewing.
Depending on the patient's needs, implant supported dentures ban be in several forms. They can be retained by ball attachments, titanium bars, or simply by mini denture implants. Denture implants can have ball-shaped attachments that fit into sockets on the implant supported dentures. A titanium bar may be screwed to the denture implants to retain the implant dentures. This choice is useful for patients with heavy bites. Mini denture implants can be used to retain implant dentures. Mini dental implants are the least expensive choice and are useful when bone is not enough for other alternatives. Additionally, mini implant dentures can be placed in one hour.
