If you still want the ability to remove your dentures, you’ll love overdentures. This type of removable denture fits snugly over dental implants. At least two dental implants are typically placed into the jawbone to provide the best support. They offer better stability than conventional dentures. Yet you can still take them off for cleaning or to give your gums a break at night. You can expect:
- A Fixed Solution – You won’t have to worry about your dentures slipping out of place. They remain in place since you snap them on top of implants.
- Easy Maintenance – They can be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance, ensuring your oral hygiene is straightforward.
- Preserved Bone Health – Implants improve your jaw health by keeping the bone intact.
Fill the Gaps With Implant Bridges
If you have healthy teeth remaining and want a solution that remains in place, you’ll benefit from implant bridges. These bridges are typically used when two or more teeth in a row are missing. Instead of removing structure from healthy teeth to support the bridge, we pair it with implants. You can expect:
- Stable Support – This solution offers stable support for replacing two or more adjacent missing teeth.
- Restored Chewing Function – The bridge restores proper chewing function, which improves your oral health and aids in digestion.
- Improved Smile – Implant bridges enhance the beauty of your smile and blend in naturally with your nearby teeth.
