Benefits of implant retained dentures and overdentures

When you lose a tooth, it is best for your oral health to have it replaced. Missing teeth can affect your “bite” as well as your ability to speak and chew. This loss can increase the burden on your remaining teeth and can cause muscle pain in your jaws and headaches. In addition, loss of a tooth can affect your appearance and confidence.

While many patients have no problem wearing an upper denture, some people can find it difficult to wear and eat with lower dentures. We offer several implant-supported replacement options at Red Cliffs Dental in St. George, Utah.

Improved confidence

Stability during eating

Bone and gum preservation

Improved dental hygiene

Super esthetics

Nutritional benefits

Option 1: Ball Attachment Denture

One option is to have two implants placed in your lower jaw and a denture made that snaps onto these dental implants. This option can allow your lower denture to be more stable while chewing than without implants. However, there will still be movement of your lower denture, and sore spots can occur if any food particles, especially seeds, are caught under the denture. As with all removable replacement teeth, you still will need periodic appointments for denture adjustments.

Option 2: Bar Attachment Denture / Overdenture

This option can allow your lower denture to be more stable while chewing than without implants.

Option 3 – Screw Retained Denture

Screw Retained Denture involves placing five or more implants in your jaw and attaching a permanent denture. The denture is held in place by screws or clasps which secure it to the support posts or bar. This option does not touch the gum tissue, allowing you to clean under the denture without removing it. This Screw Retained Denture replaces all your missing lower teeth and will not be removed except at maintenance visits. Although cleaning under your denture without removing it is more time consuming and requires more dexterity, many patients who want a permanent denture prefer this option.

What options do I have if I’m Missing all of my upper teeth?

The Implant Retained Upper Denture can be a good option as the bone in the upper jaw is not as hard as the lower jaw, and people can often need more implants to support their new replacement teeth. Depending upon the number of implants to be placed, it can be a possible option to eliminate the need for covering the roof of your mouth with a complete denture.

The Implant Retained Upper Denture allows a person to fully taste their food and gives you a better sense of the food’s temperature which is important. Your denture will feel more natural and you still have the benefits of a removable denture, making cleaning the support bar and denture much easier.

From the minute I walked in I was greeting with kindness, care, and exceptional treatment. Ellie is an extremely warm and welcoming person, and she made the whole dentist office experience interesting, comfortable, and a lot less stressful than expected. Dr. K and the whole team also deserve the most praise, as they are all diligent, kind, respectful, and educated individuals who truly show care for their patients/clientele.
