Implant Supported Dentures From Dr. August De Oliveira In Encino, CA

An implant supported denture is a kind of over denture supported by and attached to a dental implant. It also has special attachments that fix onto the attachments on the implants. A regular denture, on the other hand, rests on the gums and is not attached to the implants.

At the dental office of Dr. August De Oliveira, we use an implant supported denture if we notice that our patients are not having any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support the implants.

Implant supported dentures are usually made for the lower jaw because regular dentures are less stable in those areas. But, they are also used in the upper jaw in some cases. A regular denture, on the other hand, is designed to fit the upper jaw and doesn’t require much support from the implants

At our dental office, under the guidance of our lead dentist, Dr. August De Oliveira, we always advise our patients to remove and clean the implant supported denture and the gum area at regular intervals so that the chewing ability of the patients is not hampered. Some patients prefer to have removable crown and bridgeworks in their mouth. Our experienced and skilled dentist, Dr. August De Oliveira always does what is best suited for the patients.

How Does Implant Supported Dentures Function?

There are two types of implant supported dentures that we use at our dental office. They are bar-retained implant supported dentures and ball-retained implant supported dentures. Porcelain or acrylic teeth that look same as that of natural teeth are attached to the base. Both the dentures require at least two implants for support.

  • Bar-Retained Dentures – A bar retained implant supported denture is of the same pattern as that of the jaw. It remains attached to 2-5 implants in the jawbone. Clips or similar kind of attachments are fitted to the bar, or the denture, or both. The denture fits over the bar and remains fixed into its place by means of the attachments.
  • Ball-Retained Dentures – Each implant present in the jawbone holds a metal attachment that remains fixed to another attachment on the denture. In most cases, the attachments present on the implants are ball-shaped and fit into sockets located on the dentures.

What Are The Advantages Of Using Implant Supported Dentures?

There are many reasons why we recommend using implant supported dentures. Here are the five major advantages that you will be able to enjoy–

  • Easy On The Jaw Bone – One basic disadvantage of traditional dentures is that the patients gradually start suffering from gum loss. The primary reason behind this is that they rest on the gums and slowly wear them down. Implant supported dentures, on the other hand, do not wear the soft tissue down as they remain attached to the upper part of the jaw. They do not exert pressure on the gums.
  • Restores The Chewing Ability Of The Patients - If you are missing one or more than one tooth and not having difficulty in enjoying your favorite food items, then an implant supported denture can definitely be the best option for It will restore your chewing ability back to normal. You will have no problem enjoying your favorite food items.
  • Brings Back The Lost Smile – A smile can be a determining factor of your personality. But if you gradually start missing out your tooth due to cavity or age, then you will gradually start losing your look and appeal. With implant supported dentures, the glow and beauty of your smile will be restored, and you will start feeling confident again.
  • Provides A Natural Look – Probably this is one of the most basic advantages of an implant supported denture. An implant supported denture looks more natural, and even the function of the teeth is more organic when compared to traditional dentures.
  • No Slippage – Implant supported dentures remain fixed to the implants and not on the gums. Thus, there is no need for you to worry about slippage. You will be able to chew your food with confidence without worrying about your dentures.
