Locator Implant Retained Dentures
The Magic of Locator Implant-Retained Dentures
Picture this: a denture that doesn’t just sit there, but fits snugly, like it was custom-made for you. That’s the magic of locator implant-retained dentures! So, what exactly are they?
Understanding the Basics
First off, let’s talk about dental implants. These are like tiny anchors, usually made of titanium, that get placed into your jawbone. Now, don’t worry; it’s not as scary as it sounds! Your dentist or periodontist will guide you along and place these implants in so that once healed they can be used to secure your denture.
This can take anywhere from 3-6 months for healing. During this time your dentist will refer you to us at Wellington Dentures to make a temporary denture for you to use while it heals.
Your dentist will assess the implants again to make sure they have integrated well with your bone and then it’s time to introduce the stars of the show – the Locator attachments. Think of them as the perfect matchmakers for your dentures and implants.
Locator Implant Retained Dentures – How it Works
Now, here’s where the magic happens. The Locator attachments on your implants connect with counterparts on your denture. It’s like a high-tech puzzle, ensuring that your denture stays in place when you want it to and comes out when you need it to.
These little marvels allow for a secure, yet flexible fit. No more worrying about slipping dentures or messy adhesives – just a snug, comfortable fit that lets you eat, talk, and laugh without a care in the world.
