Dentures on Locators

Published on:

Dentures are a popular solution for people who have lost teeth due to various reasons, such as decay, gum disease or injury. They are removable dental appliances that replace missing teeth and provide support for the teeth, restoring the functionality of all oral tissues. Dentures can be either full or partial, depending on the number of teeth that are replaced.

One of the challenges of dentures wearing is that they can become loose over time, which can cause discomfort, affecting speech and eating. This is because the bone and gum tissues in the mouth change shape over time, which can alter the fit of the dentures. However, advancements in dental implants have led to the development of dentures with locators (press studs), which can provide a more secure fit and improve the overall comfort and functionality of the dentures.

Dentures on locators refer to a type of denture attachment system that uses locators or attachments to secure the denture in place. Locators are small, durable, and precision-made attachments that are fixed to the implant and into the base of the denture. The denture is then designed with corresponding attachments that snap onto the locators, creating a secure and stable fit. This creates a secure fit that allows the denture to stay in place while also allowing for natural movement and flexibility. Locators can be used with both complete and partial dentures and are designed to last for several years with proper care and make the denture-wearing comfortable.

This type of attachment system provides a range of benefits. One of the main advantages of dentures with locators is that they provide a stable fit compared to traditional dentures. Also, the denture attached to dental implants is much smaller than a classic denture. This can improve speech, chewing ability, and overall comfort, as the denture is less likely to move or shift around. Additionally, locators can help to distribute the pressure of the denture more evenly across the gums, which can reduce the risk of sore spots, irritation or excessive bone loss.

Additionally, dentures on locators can be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance, which helps to ensure that the denture and surrounding tissues remain healthy. Because the denture is held in place more securely, there is less risk of food particles or bacteria becoming trapped underneath the denture. This can reduce the risk of oral health problems, as well as possible problems with implants underneath that could be identified in the early stages.
