Implant-Supported Dentures in Holyoke, MA

Restore Your Smile With Our Holyoke Dentists

Losing teeth can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. But missing teeth aren’t just detrimental to your appearance — they can have serious oral health consequences. At Holyoke Mall Dental, Dr. Chen is proud to provide high-quality implant-supported dentures that stay firmly and naturally attached to your jawbone. 

Some people have trouble getting their removable dentures to stay firmly attached to their jaw. Thankfully, our dental implant-reinforced dentures are sturdy and look just like your natural teeth. You’ll be proud to show off your vibrant new smile with these stunning restorations customized just for you. 

What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures are a type of tooth replacement that restores your full lower or upper jaw of missing teeth. Our state-of-the-art titanium implants fuse to your jawbone, acting as your natural tooth root. As a result, these dentures are a convenient and comfortable way to restore a full arch without the inconvenience of replacing each tooth individually. 

Missing teeth can also throw off your jaw’s natural alignment. Implant dentures are modeled to look like your natural teeth and return your face to its natural, comfortable position. This can reduce the risk of TMJ disorder, headaches, and muscular pain in your jaw. 

Lower Jaw Implant Dentures Options

Ball Attachment Denture

Ball attachment dentures, also known as snap-fit dentures, are an affordable denture solution that uses as few as two dental implant posts on your bottom jaw. Your custom dentures snap into the implants, so they’re sturdier than removable dentures for eating and speaking. 

As with any tooth replacement, it’s crucial to your oral health to ensure these dentures are cleaned daily and professionally examined at least twice a year by our experienced dentist team.

Bar Attachment Denture

A bar attachment denture is an even firmer way to restore your stunning smile. First, our experienced Holyoke implant dentist will place four to six titanium implants in your jaw. Then, we’ll attach a bar to each implant, connecting them and reinforcing your jawbone along with your new replacement teeth. We’ll fit your natural-looking restorations onto the support bar, giving you the sturdy smile of your dreams.

Screw-Retained Denture

Screw-retained dentures are more permanent than other implant denture options. We can still remove your dentures for professional cleanings. However, they don’t touch your gums, so you won’t have to take them out during your daily oral care routine. Patients looking for permanent solutions to tooth loss love this comfortable, natural-looking option.

Implant-Retained Upper Dentures

Full traditional dentures cover the top of your mouth, making speaking and eating hard. Thankfully, our office provides upper implant-supported dentures. These natural-looking tooth replacements eliminate the need for dentistry that covers the roof of your mouth. 

While we use similar options for upper and lower dentures, our Holyoke dentists recommend that patients use more dental implants on their upper jaw for a complete upper jaw restoration. Your lower jawbone is denser than your upper jaw and can withstand more force, so we’ll use more implants to support your tooth replacements.

Depending upon the number of implants to be placed, it may be possible to eliminate the need for covering the roof of your mouth with a complete denture. This option allows you to fully taste your food and gives you a better sense of its temperature. Your denture will also feel and look more natural. You will still have a removable denture, making it easy to clean the support bar and denture.
