Teeth Replacement Options | Implant-Supported Dentures
Implant-Supported Dentures provide another teeth replacement option that can be a great alternative to conventional dentures. Our North Florida Surgeons will recommend a teeth replacement plan based on your individual needs and preferences. For an Implant-Supported Denture, there are three solutions we might suggest:
Removable Implant-Supported Dentures provide 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. These dentures can be attached with as few as 4 implants, though are more secure with additional implants. 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 become loose or slip within your mouth.
Implant-Secured Partial Fixed Dentures are a type of bridge that is anchored to one or more dental implants. A standard bridge is a type of partial denture that replaces one or more teeth. The standard bridge secured to 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.
With proper care and treatment, your implants can last a lifetime, just like natural teeth. Have more questions? Give us a call or if you are ready now, click the appointment link below!
