What are Locator or Bar Attachment Dentures?

At Verity Smile Studio in Indianapolis, IN, we understand the importance of a confident and functional smile, especially for those who have lost multiple teeth. Dentures are a common solution for replacing missing teeth, and with advancements in dental technology, we offer innovative options such as locator or bar attachment dentures. These types of dentures provide enhanced stability, comfort, and functionality, allowing you to enjoy life to the fullest. With locator or bar attachment dentures at Verity Smile Studio, we can help restore your smile and improve your overall quality of life.


Locator or bar attachment dentures are removable dental appliances that combine the benefits of traditional dentures with the stability and support of dental implants. These dentures utilize a system of attachments that securely connect the denture to dental implants or a metal framework. The attachments, such as locator attachments or a bar attachment, provide improved stability and reduce the risk of denture movement or slippage.

How Verity Smile Studio can help

Enhanced Stability: One of the primary benefits of locator or bar attachment dentures is their enhanced stability compared to traditional removable dentures. The attachments securely connect the denture to dental implants or a metal framework, reducing movement and eliminating the need for messy denture adhesives. This stability allows you to speak, eat, and smile with confidence, without the worry of denture slippage.


Improved Chewing Function: Traditional removable dentures can make chewing certain foods difficult and uncomfortable. Locator or bar attachment dentures address this issue by providing a more secure and stable foundation for chewing. With the improved stability of these dentures, you can enjoy a wider range of foods and experience better digestion and nutrient absorption.


Increased Comfort: The attachments used in locator or bar attachment dentures help distribute biting forces more evenly across the dental implants or metal framework, reducing pressure on the gums and providing greater comfort. Additionally, the secure fit of these dentures minimizes friction and irritation on the gum tissue, enhancing overall comfort during daily wear.


Natural Appearance: Locator or bar attachment dentures are custom-made to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, resulting in a natural and aesthetically pleasing smile. The design of these dentures ensures that they blend seamlessly with your existing teeth and facial features, enhancing your overall appearance and boosting your confidence.


Preserving Bone Health: Traditional removable dentures can accelerate bone loss in the jaw over time due to the lack of stimulation from tooth roots. Locator or bar attachment dentures address this concern by stimulating the underlying jawbone through the dental implants or metal framework. This stimulation helps preserve bone health and prevent the deterioration of the jawbone, maintaining facial structure and preventing a sunken appearance.


Easy Maintenance: Locator or bar attachment dentures are removable, making them easy to clean and maintain. You can remove the dentures for daily cleaning, allowing you to effectively clean both the dentures and your natural teeth. Regular visits to Verity Smile Studio in Indianapolis, IN for check-ups and professional cleanings are still important to ensure the longevity and optimal performance of your dentures.
