An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture that is supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported by implants.
An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn’t have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. An implant-supported denture has special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants.
Implant-supported dentures usually are made for the lower jaw because regular dentures tend to be less stable there. Usually, a regular denture made to fit an upper jaw is quite stable on its own and doesn’t need the extra support offered by implants. However, you can receive an implant-supported denture in either the upper or lower jaw. Contact Lake Country Dental to see if and implant-retained denture is an option for you.
“I’ve been going here since I was old enough to go to the dentist and I love it!! Dr. Mattson is awesome as well my hygienist. The ladies in the front are always super nice no matter if it’s on the phone or in person. I feel like they all know me by name before looking at my information.“
“Everyone there is kind and caring. They try to do they’re best to put you at ease. And they work hard to make the care you need as affordable as possible. Dental care isn’t cheap, but they try to keep costs reasonable. I went on a friend’s recommendation and I’ll pass the same recommendation on.“
