Types of Implant-Supported Dentures Implant-Supported Dentures are a teeth replacement option that can be a great alternative to conventional dentures. By using an implant as the anchor, these solutions leave your natural teeth untouched and offer a more secure alternative to traditional dental bridges as well. Our doctor will recommend the ideal replacement plan based on your individual needs and preferences. These treatments can be completed in just one day, allowing you to walk out of our practice with a beautiful and functional smile after a single visit. Implant-Secured Partial Fixed Dentures are a type of bridge that is anchored to one or more dental implants. A standard bridge is secured to the surrounding teeth, which can cause these neighboring teeth to become loose. With implant-secured partial fixed dentures, the implant provides the anchor, so your natural teeth are not compromised. Removable Implant-Supported Dentures provide a replacement for all upper and/or lower teeth. They can be removed for cleaning like conventional dentures, yet are far more secure than unsupported dentures. Our dentist will advise you on how many implants are best for your removable implant-supported dentures. Fixed Implant-Supported Dentures also replace all upper and/or lower teeth. These dentures are permanently anchored to your dental implants. They are used to replace a full set of teeth and can be helpful in preventing bone loss. The strength of dental implants provides an ideal anchor for dentures that will not loosen or shift within your mouth. Benefits of Hybrid Implants Hybrid implants are an aesthetic, effective solution for tooth loss. There are many great benefits to choosing hybrid implants to replace multiple missing teeth, including: Ease of placement: Hybrid implants can be completed in a single day, allowing you to walk out with a beautiful and functional smile after just one visit. Natural looking smile: Hybrid implants are crafted to closely resemble your natural teeth, restoring a natural-looking smile. Improved oral health: Since there is no need to alter surrounding teeth to anchor implants, more of your natural teeth are preserved intact, improving long-term oral health. Improved speech: With removable, non-anchored dentures, teeth can slip within the mouth, causing slurred or mumbled speech. Dental implants remove that concern. Improved comfort: Hybrid implants avoid the slipping and discomfort of removable dentures. Improved function: Hybrid implants function like your natural teeth, allowing you to eat without pain. Durability: With proper care, hybrid implants can last a lifetime.
