Implant Denture Options

Option 1: Fixed Implant-Supported Dentures

The Fixed implant-supported denture is commonly called the “All-on-Four”, the “All-on-Six”, or the hybrid denture. This restorative technique is as close as is currently possible to having your natural teeth back again. Restoring not only your smile, but also over 90% of your chewing power.

In most cases 4 implants are placed in the lower jaw and 6 in the upper and the teeth are secured onto the implants with titanium screws. The screw holes are then filled in with tooth-colored fillings. Only the missing teeth and gum tissue are replaced. There is not any bulky plastic surrounding the gums and the palate is not covered in plastic.

You brush and floss them just like natural teeth. You will also have routine dental check-ups and cleanings, at least every six months. Unlike natural teeth, they are not susceptible to tooth decay. However, like natural teeth, you must have good oral hygiene to keep your gums healthy.

 

Benefits of Fixed Implant-Supported Dentures:

  • Creates a whole new smile in one day.
  • Renews a more youthful appearance.
  • Enhances self-esteem, self-confidence, and your overall quality of life.
  • Eat your favorite foods again.
  • Taste food again.
  • No more hiding your smile.
  • Like having your natural teeth back.
  • No more cavities.
  • Can only be removed by the doctor.
  • Requires minimal recovery time.
  • Gives you the freedom to be you again.

Option 2: Removable Implant-Supported Dentures

Removable Implant-Supported Dentures are commonly called “Bar Dentures” or “Bar-Retained” dentures. This option is very similar to the hybrid denture option explained previously. The major difference is the denture is cleaned outside of the mouth and the bar and implants are brushed and flossed like they are teeth.

In most cases, 4 implants are placed in the lower jaw and 6 in the upper. Then a custom-milled titanium bar is fabricated and screwed onto the implants. The bar has various attachments fixed to it and the inside of the denture has housings and nylon clips embedded in it so that it can securely attach to the bar.

Benefits of Bar Implant Dentures

  • Creates a whole new smile in one day.
  • Renews a more youthful appearance.
  • Enhances self-esteem, self-confidence, and your overall quality of life.
  • Eat your favorite foods again.
  • Taste food again.
  • No more hiding your smile.
  • Like having your natural teeth back.
  • No more cavities.
  • Is easily removed for cleaning and maintenance.
  • Requires minimal recovery time.
  • Gives you the freedom to be you again.

Option 3: "Snap-on" Implant Denture (Implant Retained)

Implant-retained Snap-on Implant Dentures are false teeth that snap onto individual dental implants. The implants hold the denture in place however, the gum tissue and its underlying bone support the denture and take the forces generated while chewing. Snap-on implant dentures restore 50 to 60% of the chewing power back to the patient.

In most cases 4 implants are placed in the lower jaw and 6 in the upper. Then a button or ball type attachment is screwed into the implant and a metal housing with a nylon or rubber gasket inside is embedded in the inside of the denture. The denture simply snaps into place. Since the denture is still supported by the patient’s tissues there can be some “play” at the back end of the denture.

The denture is cleaned just like any other denture and the implant attachments are brushed and flossed like you would natural teeth.

 

Benefits of "Snap-on" Implant Dentures

  • The ability to chew and taste food again.
  • Improved speech
  • Requires minimal recovery time. (Most people are eating the night of surgery and back to work the next day.)
  • Eliminates the need for denture adhesives.
  • The implants stabilize the bone inhibiting further degeneration.
  • Are easily cleaned and maintained.
  • Existing dentures can often be retro-fitted avoiding the cost of a new denture.
  • The most economical type of implant denture.
  • Enhance self-confidence and the overall quality of life.
