There are two types of dentures, though they are both made of an acrylic base that resembles your gums, and acrylic or porcelain teeth that resemble your natural teeth attached to the base. Both also require a minimum of two implants for support.

1. Bar retained dentures – a thin metal bar is attached to 2-5 implants placed in the jaw bone. It follows the curve of your jaw, and is fitted with clips or other attachments to securely clip the denture.

2. Ball-retained dentures – each implant holds a metal attachment (ball shaped) that fits into another attachment (socket) on the denture.

Benefits of denture stabilization through implants include:
  • Restoration of proper chewing, allowing a better diet and better health
  • Improved speech and confidence
  • Higher comfort and less irritation of your gum tissues
  • Eliminates the cost and inconvenience of denture adhesives
  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Can utilize your current denture
