How Implant Supported Dentures Work
These dentures are designed with a set of dental implants fused to the jawbone with the top of the implant serving as the base for a set of dentures. This provides a very secure fit for the patient.
All-on-4 Technique for Tooth Replacement
If you have some bone loss in the jaw because of missing teeth, you may be a good candidate for the All-on-4 technique for tooth replacement. These implant supported dentures work by placing four implants in the jaw to serve as a base for dentures.
These dentures are secured in place with metal bars that run along the gum line. The bars are attached to a set of dental implants to create a secure and stable foundation for dentures.
Dental implants are connected to the base of the dentures with a ball-and-socket mechanism. This reduces the risk of slipping when eating and talking.
