Wearing unstable dentures is very unpleasant and there are multiple solutions trying to address this problem. One of the best is getting Implant Dentures.
What are Implant Dentures?
Ordinary dentures use teeth, gums, and surrounding tissues in your mouth for support. However, they may not be suitable when you don’t have any teeth remaining on your jaw – in this case you should try Implant Dentures.
They are usually recommended for the lower jaw, where regular dentures are less stable then needed. This tooth restoration option implies getting dental implants which will serve as support for overdentures.
Implant Dentures types
- Bar-Retained Dentures
They are supported by a metal bar following the curves of the jaw. Two to five implants are placed into the jawbone for this type of denture.
- Ball-Retained Dentures
This type of denture uses pairs of balls and sockets (male, respectively female attachments), which correspond to the implant and to the denture.
Advantages of Implant Dentures
- Better bite
- Increased comfort
- Ensures excellent functionality
- They don’t irritate gum tissues
- Avoiding bone loss and jaw shrinkage
- Lower maintenance costs
- Easiness of use
The process of getting Implant Dentures

- Discussing the treatment plan
You should know that the procedure will last around 5 months for the lower jaw and 7 months for the upper jaw, so it’s important to discuss the treatment plan in details before getting your Implant Dentures.
- Undergoing surgery
First, the dental implants will be inserted into the jawbone. The second surgery will expose the top of the implants. You will need to wait between 3 and 6 months between the two steps – this period is needed to allow the implants to fuse with the jawbone.
