Bar Attachment Denture


a patient who has had bar attachment dentures from Garden City, NY
The bar attachment denture is an innovative restoration that has forever changed the way that dentists and surgeons think about replacing teeth. Traditional dentures have limited success, as they are not secured, inconvenient, and at times, painful. Traditional dentures can make it difficult for you to eat your favorite foods, and because they tend to be unstable, you can find yourself in an embarrassing situation if your dentures slip or shift while you’re speaking.

The bar attachment denture has been created to deal with some of these problems, as it will work to replace the teeth that are missing with a dental bridge, and the only thing that will support it are four dental implants. Since fewer implants are required, the cost and treatment time with this restoration will both be significantly reduced. You’ll also enjoy greater bone stability, reducing the necessity for bone grafting in order to improve bone volume.

Candidates for Bar Attachment Dentures

Some people will be better candidates than others when it comes to bar attachment dentures. If you are wearing traditional dentures and find them to be inconvenient or uncomfortable, you are a top candidate for this restorative option. If you are missing several natural teeth, bar attachment dentures will likely be the best possible treatment option, but you should be sure to call us to get an evaluation.

Bar Attachment Dentures vs. Dental Implants

Both dental implants and bar attachment dentures can be used to replace entire rows of teeth. However, while dental implants generally require 6–8 implants, bar attachment dentures will only require four.

Likewise, dental implants require at least two procedures to have the implants put into place. First, you’ll have the titanium posts put into your jaw bone, and then you’ll be sent home for up to six months while the jawbone heals and the implant fuses around it. After that, you’ll return for your follow up appointment to get your final restorations. On the other hand, bar attachment dentures will be completed all in the same appointment, so you’ll go from tooth loss to a beautiful and functional smile in just one visit.

Benefits of Bar Attachment Dentures

If you are considering bar attachment dentures, it is important that you weigh the pros and cons of this system. There are several benefits associated with choosing bar attachment dentures for your tooth loss:
•  Cost effective. As previously noted, your replacement teeth will only require four implants per jaw. Since you will require fewer implants than with traditional implants, the cost of your treatment will be reduced.
•  Faster healing and treatment time. The replacement arch and implants will be attached immediately.
•  Less chance for requiring a bone graft. The way that the two implants are tilted will ensure that they are properly anchored, and this generally makes it unnecessary to also pursue bone grafting, even if bone is limited.

Best of all, the bar attachment denture has been getting excellent reviews, and outcomes from clinical trials over the last 10 years have come back with extremely favorable results.
