When a patient has lost all of their teeth or the remainder of their teeth in a specific arch need to be removed, there are options besides traditional dentures. Dental implants have changed the game for anyone who has lost all of their teeth in either the top or bottom jaw, or both.
This is an arch of replacement teeth attached to dental implants or mini dental implants that have been placed in the jaw. The implants act as anchors to hold the teeth in place and make them very similar in function to your natural teeth. These teeth are permanent and do not come out.
This option utilizes modified traditional dentures (minus the palate portion) that snap onto dental implants or mini dental implants. This is a great option for those who may already have dentures, but are not happy with them. The implants make the dentures very stable. The dentures are able to be snapped out at night for cleaning purposes.
