Implant-Supported Dentures at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry
This video shows you how a removeable overdenture can replace missing teeth using dental implants with special fittings that snap the denture in place within the mouth.
Dentures Supported by Implants
If you’ve lost an entire set of teeth in either jaw due to disease, decay, or trauma, then implant-supported dentures are an ideal solution to restore your smile and your health. Our denture sets are personally designed to look like your natural teeth and are placed securely with dental implants to provide a comfortable, stable fit.
For patients who still retain some healthy teeth in either of their upper or lower jaw, we may use a partial denture for your implants or recommend another one of our dental implant solutions.
You won’t ever have to worry about your dentures sliding or falling out anymore because our implant dentures are fastened with just four dental implants. If you want to improve your oral health, enhance your appearance, and smile with confidence again, talk to our team about receiving implant-supported dentures today.
Benefits of Implant Dentures
Here at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer a variety of different implant solutions so our patients have options that meet their particular dental needs. Depending on the option you choose, our denture implants can be either fixed or removable. Both options provide patients with the same health and smile benefits, including:
- Look and feel like your natural teeth
- No more sliding or shifting from a traditional denture
- Enjoy all your favorite foods again
- Speak with confidence and ease
- Stimulate healthy bone growth
- Quick and easy procedure compared to dentures
- More customized, comfortable fit
Snap-in dentures are a great, cost-effective option for our patients who are missing an entire set of teeth and want to improve the durability, comfort, functionality, and appearance of their prosthesis. For the lower arch, two implants will help retain the denture and the upper arch will require at least four implants because of its softer tissue.
The implants will hold a metal attachment that fits onto another attachment on the snap-in denture. The attachments on the implants are ball-shaped and fit into the sockets of the denture, allowing for a secure, stable fit.
U-Shaped Palateless Dentures
Typically, a traditional denture prosthesis made for the upper jaw has a big, gum-colored acrylic that naturally suctions to the roof of your mouth. Some patients prefer not to have their entire palate covered with a denture because it can hinder their sense of taste.
With a U-Shaped palateless denture, we can place five to six implants along your upper jawbone to eliminate the need for a complete palate. This type of implant denture is great if you have a severe gag reflex or want to improve your comfort and sense of taste.
Fixed Hybrid Dentures
Using two to five implants that are placed in the lower or upper jaw, we can permanently fix dentures using a thin, metal bar that aligns with the curve of your jaw. Using fixed attachments, the bar is positioned into the acrylic part of your denture, helping to stabilize the implants.
Did you ever think you could restore an entire arch of teeth in just one day? Thanks to All-on-4, you can. After we’ve fabricated your customized denture, you’ll come in for your implant procedure. At this appointment, we’ll insert four implants in the upper or lower jaw and your new removable or permanent denture will be placed the same day.
