Implant supported dentures in Miami, FL are designed to sit right on top of dental implants and provide a very secure fit and hold. They can be removed for regular cleaning and are unlikely to slip or become loose. Some patients, however, choose fixed implant supported dentures with Dr. Scott Ross and Dr. Bradley Ross which serve as permanent teeth and are not removable.
Regular dentures sit on the top of your gums and can cause bone deterioration. Over time, this leaves space that can lead to complications including slipping, clicking sounds, or a loose fit. Implant supported dentures are secured in the mouth by attaching to dental implants and are often used in the lower jaw.
Also called stud attached dentures, these types of dentures are designed with balls and sockets. The base of the denture is connected to dental implants fused to the jaw bone with a ball and socket mechanism. This creates a very secure fit and these are even less likely to slip or move. This method also allows for an open palate denture.
Bar retained dentures require placing three or more dental implants into the jaw bone. A set of metal bars run along the gum line between these implants and the dentures sit on the bars, attached by metal clips. This creates a secure fit and eliminates complications such as loosening of the dentures, discomfort, and rubbing associated with traditional removable dentures.
Both procedures for implant supported dentures provide a secure, comfortable way to replace missing teeth. For more information about dental implants in Miami, FL, set up your consultation with Dr. Scott Ross and Dr. Bradley Ross today!
