When you need to replace missing or failing teeth, there are many options available to you. While the most common solution for complete tooth loss is a removable denture, many patients find this to be detrimental to their health and frustrating and uncomfortable in the long-term. And while All-on-4® dental implants may be the most natural and effective tooth replacement solution, some find this option out of their budget. If these relate to you, then the ideal in-between solution is an implant supported denture. This option combines traditional removable dentures with as few as two dental implants to give you a more secure and functional bite.
For most patients, we simply place two dental implants per arch into your jaw that will connect to and support a denture prosthetic. Our surgeons use guided X-Nav technology when placing your implants so that they are in the precise location necessary for the most support. Patients who have been missing teeth or wearing dentures for some time may have experienced bone loss in the jaw. We offer bone grafting treatments to restore lost bone in order to support the implants effectively. If you currently wear dentures, we can either upgrade your current prosthesis to support the implants, or have a new denture created. This denture will then securely “snap” onto the implants for a firm hold. This drastically improves your bite strength, chewing ability, and completely removes the fear of your denture slipping or falling out!
