Is your denture loose?
A traditional denture can be supported with implants. Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence! They are secure and offer freedom from the irksome clicks and wobbles of dentures. They'll allow you to say goodbye to worries about misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues.
A removable full denture is connected to a bar attachment, which in turn is anchored on two to six implants in the jaw. The implants help keep the denture securely in place and provide better function and comfort. It actually snaps and locks into place. With four to six implants and the connector bar, this option is extremely stable and almost feels like natural teeth. Overdentures also replace lost gum and bone and can vastly improve facial appearance. Cost is usually the reason why this solution is chosen over a fixed bridge.
A fixed bridge is not removable. A removable overdenture has implants under the denture. An overdenture is a great solution for someone that already has dentures. Many times I can use your existing dentures and just attach implants to them!
An upper denture usually needs more implants than a lower one. This is due to the soft bone of the upper jaw. The worst thing you can do is "under-engineer" any overdenture. They endure a tremendous amount of force and will fail in a few years if they are poorly designed or have to few implants. It would be like constructing a building and skimping on the foundation.
