If you’ve lost a tooth or multiple teeth as a result of periodontal disease or any other cause, dental implants could be the right choice for you. You can trust the team at Bonnie Doon Denture Clinic to provide knowledgeable professional care. We are proud to have served our satisfied patients for over 30 years. This includes providing denture implants in Edmonton. A dental implant is a high-quality, artificial metal root that is inserted directly into the jawbone and serves as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth or teeth in place. These help to preserve the strength of your jawbone while providing maximum comfort.
There are two main types of denture implants for your consideration: bar-retained dentures and ball-retained dentures. Be advised that both types will need the support of at least two dental implants. Bar-retained dentures derive their name from the thin metal bar that’s used to attach two to five implants along the curve of your jaw. Once your denture has been fitted securely over the bar, it will be clipped into place to ensure an optimal fit. Ball-retained dentures derive their name from the ball-shaped metal attachments that fit into sockets to hold your dentures securely in place. Sometimes the denture will hold the ball-shaped attachments, while the implant(s) will hold the sockets.
Benefits of Implant-Support Dentures
There are many benefits associated with dental implants, including:
Choosing implant-supported dentures is a big decision. You’ll likely enjoy more denture stability with implant-supported dentures instead of relying upon a traditional denture with an adhesive. However, this isn’t always a viable treatment option for everybody. If you believe denture implants in Edmonton may be a good option for you, please call us to schedule a free consultation at Bonnie Doon Denture Clinic. Our Denturist will be more than happy to address any questions or concerns you may have about implant-supported dentures in determining whether or not they’re the right solution for your specific denture needs.
