About Implant Supported Dentures
Permanent dentures designed with dental implants in Omaha, NE, can be an attractive option for patients with missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw. A set of dentures can be secured in place with a set of dental implants fused to the jaw bone. These dentures can be removed for cleaning or you can opt for fixed implant dentures that function just like your permanent teeth. We may recommend bar-retained or ball-retained dentures as part of your treatment plan.
Ball Retained Dentures
Ball retained dentures use a ball and socket design to hold your denture firmly in place using between 2 and 6 dental implants. Often your current denture can be modified to fit this type of implant supported denture system.
Bar Retained Dentures
Bar retained dentures are attached to a bar that is held in place using between 2 and 6 dental implants. This type of over denture system allows you to remove the denture for cleaning but gives the security of a dental implant so the denture does not slip or move in the mouth.
