How Do Implant Dentures Work?

implant dentures Timonium

Dental implants may well be the ideal solution to a lost tooth. In fact, implants have been hailed as one of the greatest advancements in dentistry. At Dr. Steven W. Haywood in Timonium, we offer single implants for one missing tooth, and denture implants that can support a set of dentures.

This article focuses on implant dentures.

What Are Implant Dentures?

Like conventional dentures, implant-supported dentures replace missing teeth. The difference is that they are attached to titanium posts which are surgically placed into the jawbone.

The posts are the actual implants. Implants fuse with the surrounding bone structure to create an incredibly durable restoration. Each post has a clip that attaches to the denture or partial denture that holds connectors. Implants can be used for both upper and lower dentures.

Bar-Retained and Ball-Retained Systems

There are two types of implant stabilization methods: bar-retained and ball-retained. For both, the denture is produced with gum-colored acrylic for the base to which false teeth are attached. The denture needs at least two implants for stabilization; four is more common.

With the ball-retained system, each post holds an attachment (male or female) that fits into a corresponding adapter on the denture. These are sometimes called “stud-attachment.”

With bar-retained dentures, a metal bar is anchored to two to five implants. The bar holds the attachments that connect to the denture.

Implant dentures can change your life. To find out more, call us at Dr. Steven W. Haywood in Timonium. We also provide general dentistry services. Schedule an appointment today.
