More and more patients are turning to dental implants in Mansfield, TX to improve the function and comfort of ordinary dentures. Dentures have a tendency to slide and make noise and, because dentures work from the gum line, they also put the wearer at increased risk for bone loss. Dental implants in Mansfield, TX with Dr. Jeff Buske are surgically installed in the jaw to stabilize dentures and stimulate the bone to prevent it from deterioration.
No more loose, ill-fitting dentures. Now patients can enjoy the many benefits of implant supported dentures.
The Different Types and Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures
Dental implants in Mansfield, TX with Dr. Buske can improve dentures in two ways, either as a detachable or fixed denture for the upper or lower jaw. The benefits of implant supported dentures are well documented and patients who wear them report great success and an improved quality of life.
Some people enjoy the benefits of implant supported dentures using a bar-retained denture. Bar-retained dentures are placed just above the gum line. Dr. Buske starts with an oral examination to determine the number of implants he should use and the best places to install them. Once the implants are in, Dr. Buske will connect them with a thin line of wire. The denture is then placed atop of the wire and held in place with a few clips.
Some people enjoy the benefits of implant supported dentures using a ball-retained denture. Bar retained dentures are also called stud-attached dentures and rely on a ball and socket mechanism. This denture is also palate-less so the wearer can enjoy the textures and taste of food. Dr. Buske starts with an oral examination to determine the number of implants he should use and the best places to install them. Once the dental implants (which have little studs on the tips) are in, the denture is lined up with the balls and snapped on tight.
