Implant supported dentures are different than your traditional dentures. Traditional dentures often cause bone deterioration and leave space. The extra space can cause complications such as slipping and clicking sounds when eating or speaking. Implant supported dentures are anchored in the mouth, attached to dental implants to create permanent new teeth. Implant dentures are mostly used on the lower jaw where removable dentures are less stable, but may also be useful for the upper jaw. There are different types of implants used to support dentures, and Dr. Jonathan Tiger can discuss dental implant cost in Pomona, NY with you.
Dentures with implant supports are snapped into place providing your permanent new teeth a secure fit while eliminating looseness or slipping. With this procedure there is no need for paste or adhesives. Dentures supported by implants are designed by Dr. Tiger so that they can be removed for regular cleaning.
A metal bar-structured implant may be the treatment plan for you. In this case, a metal bar is secured to the implants and used for the denture to clip onto. Many patients prefer these permanent new teeth as an alternative to traditional, removal dentures. It eliminates the loosening and discomfort that can be caused by traditional, removable dentures.
Another option to consider is ball-retained dentures, also called stud-attached dentures. The denture uses sockets that line up with balls placed on the dental implants. The balls and sockets create a secure fit. The ball and socket attachment does not slip or move as a traditional denture can. Dr. Tiger will do a thorough evaluation to determine the best treatment plan for you.
