Traditional Dentures (“Plates”)
For many people, conventional dentures are all they need to affordably restore their missing teeth. These removable prosthetics rest against your gum tissue, replacing all of the teeth in your upper or lower arch.
Do you still have healthy, stable teeth? A partial denture snaps into place around your existing smile, preventing unnecessary dental extractions. Partials only replace the teeth that are already missing.
Implant Supported Dentures
Permanent implant dentures are a hybrid, slim prosthesis that offers improved comfort and strength for everyday meals. Implant dentures help delay the bone loss and collapse of facial features that frequently accompany missing teeth. As few as 4-6 implants are needed per arch.
Overdentures (Implant Stabilized Dentures)
An overdenture is a removable, implant stabilized prosthesis that incorporates the affordability of a “plate” with the advantages of dental veneers. Often, overdentures set the stage for future full arch implants. Only 2-4 implants are required. In some cases, your current denture can be retrofitted to clip onto newly placed implants.
