What Are Permanent Dentures?
Permanent dentures utilize the stability of dental implants to provide an anchor for your prosthesis. With this method, Dr. Darryl will place three or more titanium dental implants within your jaw bone. The implants serve as a foundation for your restoration, but will also protect your bone health by stimulating your jaw bone. A custom designed denture is then secured to the dental implants using one of two techniques:
Bar-retained permanent dentures: A metal bar is placed along the tops of the implants, providing a base for your prosthesis. Your denture can rest securely and comfortably, anchored by metal clasps.
Ball-retained permanent dentures: Implant posts are topped with studs designed to fit into sockets located on your prosthesis. The denture simply snaps into place, providing you with the stability needed to function properly.
