One of the options when choosing a restorative dental option is dental implant secured dentures. A combination of both dentures and dental implants, overdentures can create a beautiful new smile, yet have the stability offered by dental implants. One of the elements of overdentures is the dental implant bar, which holds the dentures in place in the mouth, creating a non-slip smile that is extremely functional and natural-appearing.

The dental implant bar is a customized device that is attached to the dental implants in the mouth. Both upper and lower overdentures can be created to use a dental implant bar as the securing point in the mouth. While the overdentures are removed for cleaning, the dental implant bar is permanently secured in place to the dental implants. This device creates a stable, secure attachment to the upper and lower jaw for the overdentures.

Overdenture Dental Implant Bar Process

The dental implant bar is customized to fit both the implants and the new overdentures when a smile restoration is completed. The dental implant bar is screwed onto the dental implants once they are healed and integrated. Some patients have a dental implant bar on both upper and lower jaws, while some may only have one or the other, depending on their needs. The overdentures are equipped with small clips that affix to the dental implant bar, holding them secure and in place, creating excellent retention and stability for the dentures.
The dental implant bar is not removed like the overdentures, but it does need to be cleaned. Patients can brush it for cleaning, just like they would natural teeth.

Dental implant bars make it possible to have removable overdentures that snap into place when they are worn, creating a stable, non-slip smile. Dental implant secured dentures with an implant bar can give patients more confidence in their smile, especially when talking, laughing and eating.

I will highly recommend Dr. Dalla. I found him to be very pleasant and highly professional. I had implants done and he did it so well that I had no discomfort. He is an excellent dentist specialist.

I went to Ora last month for a denture implant consultation, soon as I walked through the door I was greeted by the ladies in the front. My consultation went great Dr. Dalla was great, he listened to my concerns and explained what would be the best procedure for my situation. Also worked with my financial situation. I had all my teeth extracted and my dentures placed. Tia was so wonderful she did her best to calm me down and reassure me there was nothing to be nervous about. Before he started I expressed how nervous and scared I was he assured me I was in great hands and I was. The staff there is the best. I have a little discomfort but when I looked in the mirror for the first time a hour ago I was very very happy with my outcome. I still have to go back for the implants then I'll be finished. I want to thank the whole staff at Ora for giving me my confidence back in my smile.
