Implant-Supported Dentures in Midland, TX

In addition to our full and partial dentures, Basin Dentistry also offers implant-supported dentures. An implant-supported denture is a mixture of implants and dentures combined to make an overdenture. The overdenture is then supported and attached to an implant. A traditional denture rests on the gums and not supported by any structure, usually held in place with adhesive. Implant-supported dentures are used in situations where patients are missing all of their teeth, but have the substantial bone structure needed to support the addition of surgical implants. The overdenture has specific attachments that adhere to the attachments on the implant. Some patients will find the implant-supported dentures to be a better option for the lower jaw as dentures tend to be less stable in that area.

Basin Dentistry understands that implants, dentures and other restoration work is a sensitive situation. We want all of our patients to feel comfortable with their procedures and treatments. We will work hard to make sure your comfort is a priority and we listen to and address all of your concerns. As you consider your options for tooth replacement implant-supported dentures can offer a solution.

How Do Implant-Supported Dentures Work?

There are two types of implant-supported dentures: bar-retained dentures and ball-retained dentures.

  • Bar-retained dentures are a thin metal bar curved to fit the jaw attached to implants. Clips and other attachments are then fitted to the bar, dentures or both. The dentures are then placed inside the mouth and fit over the bar. The attachments allow for an extremely secure fit.
  • Ball-retained dentures are a series of attachments that fit into other attachments on dentures. Sort of like a snap together puzzle of sorts, the ball-retained denture uses a series of balls and sockets to adhere to the implant and secure the denture.
