Regular dentures rest on top of your gums, causing bone deterioration and leaving space that can cause complications such as loose fit, slipping, or clicking sounds. Implant supported dentures are anchored in the mouth through attachment to dental implants. This type of dentures is most often used in the lower jaw where removable dentures are less stable, but can also be used in the upper jaw also.
Ball-retained dentures, also called stud-attached dentures, function with a ball and socket mechanism. The denture base has several sockets that line up with balls placed on dental implants in the jaw bone. The balls and sockets fit together for an extremely secure fit, allowing for an open palate denture. Ball and socket attachment is even less likely to slip or move, restoring the patient’s ability to eat and speak regularly
