Implant supported dentures are a great way to replace missing teeth without spending a fortune or living with the hassles and frustrations associated with wearing conventional ones.
Conventional dentures function from the gum line where they are sure to cause slippage, noise, irritation and even worse, bone loss in the jaw. Dental implants with dentures from Vancouver dentist Dr. Steven Tsoung erases all of that worry and makes smiling, eating and speaking a pleasure again.
Dentures supported by dental implants no longer slip on the gums. Instead, they are locked into several implants that Dr. Tsoung surgically places in your jaw. Your jaw benefits too, because implants perform just like tooth roots, stimulating the bone on a daily basis to keep it fit and healthy.
Dental implants for dentures are available for upper and lower jaw placement and can either be removable for easier oral hygiene or permanently installed for your convenience.
How Dentures Supported by Dental Implants Work
Bar-retained dentures function just above the gum line but are secured. After your mouth is examined, Dr. Tsoung will decide where the dental implants should go and how many are needed. After they are surgically installed in the jaw, the dental implants are linked together by a thread of metal and the dentures are placed on top of it and clipped into place.
Ball-retained dentures (stud-attached dentures) operate with balls and sockets and offer the benefit of an open palate denture, which improves the experience of eating and drinking. After your mouth is examined, Dr. Tsoung will decide where the dental implants should go and how many ball-tipped implants are needed to support the dentures (which have matching sockets). Once installed, the appliance is lined up and pressed into place.
