Dentistry continues to evolve when it comes to treatments for missing teeth. These options vary, depending on partial or complete tooth loss. Missing teeth can change the way someone is able to eat, speak, and feel about themselves. With implant stabilized dentures, your health, confidence, and quality of life can be restored. Here are two implant options worth considering:
With removable overdentures, you wear traditional dentures that snap on top of 2-4 implants. They are removed for sleeping and for hygiene purposes. A special attachment is fitted to the implants for retention and built into the denture. This allows for the denture to be snapped on and securely locked into place without using any sticky pastes or messy denture adhesives.
The All-on-4 system is a non-removable smile option that is anchored onto four implants (or sometimes six). Since they are permanently fixed in place, the design is slimmer and follows the contour of your jaw. Each appliance is custom made to the individual. The streamlined design means you won’t have to worry about your speech, diet, or ever having to worry about your “plate” slipping out of place. It is non-removable, so you sleep in it too.
The implant stabilized denture is a high-functioning substitute for people who are missing all of their teeth. And it can last a long time if cared for properly.
