Dental Implants vs Implant-Supported Dentures
Dental implants and implant-supported dentures solve different dental problems. Dentures are a detachable set or partial set of teeth that need to be removed regularly and cared for in a special manner, where dental implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth that are cared for just like natural teeth.
A dental implant is a titanium screw secured into the jaw bone which serves as a permanent root for a missing tooth. An abutment and crown is then placed onto the implant to provide a new tooth that’s permanent and looks just like a natural tooth.
Implant-Supported Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth and can be removed from the mouth as needed. Depending on the individual patient, Implant-Supported Denture may be full or partial. Full Implant-Supported Dentures are used when all natural teeth are removed from the mouth and replaced with a plate of false teeth. Partial Implant-Supported Dentures are an option when not all teeth need to be removed. The result with a partial is similar to a dental bridge but isn’t a permanent fixture in your mouth like a bridge.
Sometimes the patient need will be well-served with a partial denture that’s installed in the mouth via permanent attachment to implanted anchors on each side in the jawbone. These implant-supported dentures bring together the best of two dental solutions, serving patients with multiple tooth loss in the same area.
In addition to providing regular dental implants and Implant-Supported Dentures, we also offer mini dental implants which are about half the diameter of a regular dental implant. If an implant needs to be placed in a narrow space, mini implants are the preferred method because of the smaller size.
