Technological advancement in the field of dentistry over time has led to people achieving a confident smile with denture implants. More and more people with missing teeth are opting for them. The days of loose, uncomfortable, and poorly fitting dentures are far behind us as dentists can now use dental implants to support your dentures and provide extra stability.   

What is a Denture Implant?

A denture implant is a surgical implant unit that supports a dental prosthesis while interfacing with the bone of the jaw. Unlike conventional dentures which are placed on your gums using an adhesive, the denture implant is anchored using permanent implants rooted in your bone.

Denture implants are primarily of two types: ball retained and bar retained. The denture will be created with the natural looking acrylic base that mimics your gums, and will have acrylic or porcelain teeth.

Ball Retained Dentures

With these dentures (also called stud attachment dentures), each dental implant in your jawbone will hold a mental attachment in the shape of a ball. This attachment will fit along with another attachment created on your denture.

Bar Retained Dentures

These dentures include a thin metallic bar that goes along the jaw curve. The dental implant in your jawbone will be attached to this bar. The bar as well as the denture will have clips or another attachment to help these fit together.  

Conventional Dentures vs. Implant Dentures

Traditional dentures can be easily removed and you can clean them after removal. But the limitation is that these conventional dentures receive placement support from your gum tissue and the underlying bone. The friction between these natural elements and the acrylic dentures can cause discomfort and soreness in some cases.

Another limitation is that traditional dentures are set into the desired position using a special adhesive. This can be bothersome for many patients because they may have to re-apply the adhesive frequently while using the dentures.

Moreover, with these conventional dentures, there is always a sense of hesitation in some patients when they are speaking or eating in a social setting. They worry that the dentures might come off at the wrong moment and cause embarrassment.

In case of denture implants, most of these limitations are completely avoided or at least mitigated because the denture is not merely resting on your gums, but has been affixed using a dental implant that is embedded in the jawbone. Frequent re-adjustments are not necessary, and comfort and confidence level of the patient is higher with denture implants.

Although you may be concerned about having an implant surgery for your dentures, but the long-term advantages of denture implants will almost always substantially outweigh the downside of undergoing a surgical procedure.
