Implant-Supported Dentures At Triad Cosmetic Dentistry

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 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 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.

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.

Types of
Implant Dentures

Snap-In Dentures

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.

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.

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.

All-on-4

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do All-on-4 dental implants last?

All-on-4 dental implants are meant to be a permanent solution for missing teeth. While the dental implants may last a lifetime, the hardware and dentures that are attached to the implants may need to be replaced with wear and tear. 

In addition to following a regular oral hygiene routine of brushing twice daily, flossing daily, and rinsing between meals, we recommend scheduling regular checkups and professional cleanings at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry to improve the longevity of your All-on-4 implants.

Will insurance cover the cost of any dental implant procedure?

Even though dental implants restore your smile, as of now, insurance companies tend to classify them as a cosmetic procedure and rarely cover these types of services. We recommend contacting your insurance provider prior to your appointment to get specific information on your coverage. 

If there are any questions we can answer, please contact our office by calling (336) 434-3186 or fill out the convenient contact form and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. One of our knowledgeable team members will be happy to assist you. We also offer flexible financing options so you can start enjoying the benefits of a complete smile right away!

Can I remove hybrid dentures for cleaning?

No, hybrid dentures are fixed to implants and don’t need to be removed for cleaning. Just clean them like you would clean your natural teeth by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and rinsing between meals. 

Be sure to use a soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid scratching the prosthetic. When you visit Triad Cosmetic Dentistry for checkups, we can remove them and give them a thorough cleanse. Hybrid dentures should only be removed by a qualified dentist.

Who are the best candidates for implant dentures?

The best candidates for implant dentures are patients who have one or more missing teeth, have good overall oral health, and sufficient bone density. Even though these are requirements going into the surgery, we can help you get there with procedures such as a bone graft to improve bone density or root planing and scaling to improve gum health. 

If you’re interested in completing your smile, we have several options for you. Schedule a consultation with one of our knowledgeable dentists by calling (336) 434-3186. During the consultation, we’ll examine your oral health and discuss your options.
