There are two major types of attachments used in implant-supported dentures:
- Bar-retained dentures use a thin metal bar connecting the implants to the jawbone. The denture is secured to the bar using clips or fasteners.
- Ball-retained dentures are held in place using metal ball-shaped parts that connect directly to the implants. The dentures stay secure when the ball aligns with the sockets placed in the denture.
Removable Implant-Supported Dentures
Traditional dentures provide a lot of flexibility, thanks to being removable, but often come with drawbacks like dependence on messy adhesives or the risk of slipping out of place. Removable implant-supported dentures offer all the freedom of traditional dentures with none of the drawbacks!
Simply snap these dentures into place when desired and remove them without any hassle!
All-On-4® Treatment Concept
The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is a patented procedure that involves placing just four titanium post implants to support a full set of dentures. The All-on-4® Treatment Concept was developed to maximize the use of existing jawbone in a patient who has atrophied bone mass in their jaw. With this treatment, you can get implant-supported dentures without getting a bone graft to repair an atrophied jaw.
The All-On-6 Treatment Method
As you might have guessed, the all-on-6 treatment is similar to The All-on-4® Treatment Concept mentioned above. This treatment fixes the most severe dental health issues, including a full mouth restoration where each tooth needs replacing.
With an additional two dental implants, the all-on-6 restoration provides smiles that look more natural than its counterpart as well as greater support for your new teeth.
Full Arch Restorations Available
We have an upper and lower arch in our mouths where our teeth rest. If one of your arches is suffering from dental issues or tooth loss, a full arch restoration may be the solution you are looking for. Using dental implants, we can restore both form and function to an arch, allowing you to chew comfortably, smile confidently, and enjoy the oral health benefits of brand-new teeth!
Implant-Supported Dental Bridges
Missing multiple teeth that create a gap in your smile not only impacts your smile’s aesthetic but also exposes your gums to harmful bacteria that greatly increase your chance of disease or infection. Thankfully, both of these issues are addressed with an implant-supported dental bridge!
This treatment creates pontics that work with your natural teeth to “bridge” gaps and complete your smile!
