Implant-Supported Dentures in Middletown and Newport, RI
Implant Supported Dentures in Middletown and Newport, RI If you know anything about wearing traditional dentures, then you’re probably familiar with the rubbing, slipping, clicking, pastes and adhesives that usually go with it. Regular dentures also increase risk of bone deterioration, because they sit directly on top of the gums.

Implant supported dentures or dentures supported by implants, take all of that away.

Implant supported dentures work better because they fasten firmly to several metal implants that Dr. Geoffrey Jones places inside your jaw. The dentures simply lock into place along the gum line for a more secure and comfortable fit.

Implant supported dentures offer more convenience and are easier to handle. Once you pop them into place, they stay put until YOU decide to remove them. Or, if you prefer, dentures supported by implants are also available as permanent, functioning teeth.

Implant supported dentures are usually anchored in the lower jaw because that’s where standard dentures are often less stable and troublesome. But implant supported dentures work just fine in the upper jaw as well. The choice is yours!

Implant supported dentures come in two varieties:

Bar-retained dentures offer superior comfort compared to regular dentures. No more rubbing, slipping, gaps, or noise.

  • Dr. Jones Implant Supported Dentures in Middletown and Newport, RIplaces three or more dental implants into your jaw bone and connects them with a thin metal bar that runs along your gum line.
  • You simply click your dentures into the bar using little metal clips for a secure, comfortable fit. Unlike ball-retained dentures, this method doesn’t rely on steel studs.

Ball-retained dentures (also called stud-attached dentures) rely on a ball and socket mechanism to keep dentures locked into place for an open palate denture. This way you never have to worry about slippage and you can eat and talk with confidence.

  • Dr. Jones inserts several ball-tipped implants into your jaw bone.
  • The base of your dentures contains the same number of sockets so you can easily snap them onto the implants for a perfect fit that stays in place.
