Dentistry is ever-changing with exciting new technologies and innovative solutions to maximize your comfort while Our restorative dentistry services offer the latest technologies and innovative solutions to help restore the look, feel, and health of your teeth. Park Avenue now offers implant-supported dentures that are removable, more affordable, and a supportive option for those seeking to improve their ability to chew and smile.
What Are Implant Supported Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are not like conventional dentures that use adhesive nor like the more expensive advanced full-arch dental implants. Rather, they are the middle ground between the two.
Implant-supported dentures are unique in that they do not require adhesive. Instead, they are anchored into the mouth with an attachment to dental implants. The sturdiness and support of the implant allow the dental fixture to be formed into a streamlined horseshoe shape, reducing the bulkiness of conventional dentures and in turn, opening the palate to create more space for the tongue. This type of denture can be either removable or fixed.
Implant-Supported Removable Dentures
Implant-supported removable dentures allow for easy cleaning and maintenance, similar to traditional dentures.
Implant-Supported Hybrid Fixed Dentures
Implant-supported hybrid fixed dentures take traditional dentures and use dental implants to fuse the denture to your jawbone. These hybrid fixed dentures are not removed on a daily basis like conventional dentures. They are fixed and removed only by your dentist for servicing or professional cleaning. The end result is a natural-looking smile that also functions as if they are your natural teeth.
When to Choose Implant-Supported Dentures
This type of procedure is life-changing and will transform your mouth’s appearance as well as your dental health. Implant-supported dentures are not for everyone, though. This procedure is best suited for patients that are missing multiple teeth or have suffered significant bone loss in their jawbone. With implant-supported dentures, the gum tissue is replaced, making your teeth regain most of their original bite strength and chewing capabilities.
If you are missing multiple teeth on the top or bottom of your mouth, this is a more affordable option compared to individual implants and crowns. Rather than individually replacing each missing tooth, hybrid restoration only requires four to six implants for a row of teeth. The denture adheres to the installed implants, creating a seamless smile.
Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
Choosing implant-supported dentures to transform your mouth includes various benefits such as:
- Precision: This type of restoration is extremely advanced and requires technology along with a team of dentists to carry out this procedure. This means there is a high level of precision, meaning your dentures will be secured to your mouth, with no room for shifting. Using the best technology, you may rest easy knowing this safe procedure will provide you with a beautiful smile.
- Restores Chewing Capabilities: Having a full set of teeth is important for proper chewing, speaking, and the movement in your jaw. Missing teeth negatively affects your ability to carry out all of these activities. With implant-supported dentures, your bite can be restored to 80-90% of your original chewing capabilities.
- Natural Looking Smile: Choosing implant-supported denture restoration will result in a natural-looking smile and one that feels comfortable. Implant-supported restoration secures the denture to your mouth with implants, meaning it will appear and feel like your permanent smile. You’ll have an entire row of teeth installed with hybrid dentures.
