Hybrid Implant-Supported Denture

Hybrid Implant-Supported Denture

A dental implant supported denture is similar to a regular denture, except that it is supported and attached to dental implants for stability. Where a denture rests on top of the gum line, held in place with an adhesive, implant supported dentures snap into place on top of implants for a firmer hold. These implant supported dentures are removable, so you can pop them out and clean them overnight.

There are a variety of implant supported dentures available, with each designed to handle a particular type of necessary restorative dentistry situation.

Implant Supported Partial Denture

A supported partial denture is a partial denture that uses the support and foundation of a series of dental implants to hold the denture firmly in place.

Implant Supported Full Upper Denture

A supported full upper denture is a full tooth replacement denture that uses the support and foundation of a series of dental implants to hold the denture firmly in place at the top of your mouth. The benefit of an implant supported full upper denture over the more traditional full upper denture is in its ability to hold itself in place without the need for a palate (guard for the roof of your mouth). This allows for a more natural look and feel.

Implant Supported Lower Full Denture

A supported lower full denture is a full tooth replacement denture that uses the support and foundation of a series of dental implants to hold the denture firmly in place at the bottom of your mouth.

How do Dental Implant Supported Dentures work?

Before you can have implant-supported dentures created and installed, you must first have the implants placed. Once the implants are placed, we will install one of two different kinds of implant supported fixed dentures: bar-retained or screw-retained. Bar-Retained Dentures are held in place by clips that snap into a thin metal bar that rests on top of your implants. Screw-Retained Dentures are fitted into metal attachments that sit within another metal attachment within the implant.

Results of a Dental Implant Supported Denture

Where regular teeth dentures may slip and slide uncomfortably when talking or eating, implant supported dentures are comfortably held in place by the implants, leaving you free to live your life.

Laser Exposure of Submerged Implant

Prior to placing the final restoration, a laser can be used to remove any excess gum tissue. The removal of this tissue can facilitate the accuracy of the impression, aiding in an accurate crown fit.
