Periodontist Dr. Neda Azadivatan now provides implant supported dentures for patients exploring options like dental implants in Manhattan, NY. An implant supported denture is a tooth replacement solution that utilizes both implants and dentures to replace missing teeth.
For some patients, implant supported dentures strike an ideal balance between the two periodontal treatments. By adding dental implants, Dr. Azadivatan can often address and resolve many of the complications that accompany traditional dentures.
Unlike dentures, which have a tendency to slide around in the wearer’s mouth, dental implants offer a superior support and durability. This enhanced security is due to the implant’s ability to fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. Once osseointegration is complete, the implant functions just like natural teeth. As a result, Dr. Azadivatan can dramatically improve the strength and security by using even as few as two or three dental implants to secure the denture.
Depending on the individual patient’s needs, Dr. Azadivatan will suggest one of two implant supported denture options: bar-retained or ball-retained. With bar retained implant supported dentures, the denture sits on metal bars that run along the gum line between the implants. This type of denture is held in place using clips rather than steel studs, as is the case with ball-retained dentures. The latter employs a ball and socket mechanism in its design; the sockets sit at the denture’s base and align with the implants rooted in the jawbone.
