Do you wear dentures that slip, move around in your mouth, or sometimes even fall out? Implant retained dentures may be an option for you! Your denture could be stabilized by implants expertly and precisely placed by Dr. Spera or Dr. Blanchard at any of our five neighborhood offices. Implant supported dentures are made in our ‘in-house’ lab located at Progressive Dental in Endwell.
Advantages of Implant Supported Dentures
- Ability to maintain a healthy diet due to chewing properly.
- Speaking with confidence as the denture stays in place.
- Protection of the jaw bone. There will be less resorption and the jaw will exercise more naturally as the denture is stabilized.
- Overall comfort, less sores and no need for denture adhesives are additional benefits.
How Do Implant Supported Dentures Work?
Generally an upper denture requires four implants and a lower denture needs two to four to stabilize the denture. Progressive Dental Lab places special attachments in the denture that line up with the patient’s implants in their mouth. The denture snaps in place over these attachments. The denture can easily be removed to properly clean the mouth and denture to maintain excellent oral health.
