Implant-Supported And Implant-Retained Dentures
If you’ve worn dentures in Winnipeg, then you’re familiar with the traditional methods of keeping them in place: creams, pastes, and adhesives that may not taste or work the best. If you want them to stay in place reliably without the need for additional products, you should consider dental implants! At Winnipeg Square Dental, we offer two different systems to attach your dentures to implants, both of which will give you an amazing amount of stability and support that you can’t get with traditional dentures!
Using a series of dental implants, we’ll modify your dentures to snap firmly in place and stay put until you take them out in the evening! The implants placed in your mouth will use one of two systems to attach to your dentures: a bar and clasp, or a ball and socket.
Implant-retained dentures use a ball-and-socket system. Your implants are topped with metal balls, and your dentures are modified to include sockets that snap firmly onto your implants. They’ll stay in place all day long, and you’ll be eating what you love before you know it!
Implant-supported dentures use a bar and clasp. Your implants are finished with a metal bar that runs across all of them, and your dentures are fitted with a series of metal clasps that clip firmly onto a groove that runs the length of the bar.
If tooth loss is leaving you nervous about the future of your ability to eat and smile, don’t let life make the decision for you – call our Winnipeg office to schedule an appointment! You can also schedule an appointment using our online form. We look forward to seeing you soon!
