Dentures, made reliable

Patients seeking different tooth replacement options in Franklin, NC should consider implant supported dentures. Dr. Gregg Codelli provides patients with an option that does not make them choose between their traditional dentures and the modern dental implants; it combines both.

Franklin, NC patients with low bone density can benefit from implant supported dentures because they offer the security of implants while also allowing the patients to still remove their dentures for cleaning. There are two different options when it comes to implant supported dentures: ball-retained or bar-retained dentures.

  • Implant supported dentures explained

Ball-Retained Dentures

Ball-retained dentures are also known as stud-attached dentures, and they are constructed like they sound. Once the implants are inserted into the jaw bone, the dentures, containing sockets on their base, are placed on top of the implants and lined up with the balls that snap together and secure them in place. This option reduces the risk of the slippage and shifting of dentures.

Bar-Retained Dentures

Bar-retained dentures use three or more dental implants. Once the implants are inserted into the jaw bone a metal bar is attached to the implants, and the denture is placed on top of the metal bar. This raises the denture from the gum line, reducing irritation of the gums. Metal clips are used to secure the dentures to the bar.

Implant supported dentures can be fixed or removable. Consult with Dr. Codelli today to find out if you qualify for dentures supported by dental implants in Franklin, NC.
