Implant Dentures: Fixed Or Removable?

By September 27, 2019No Comments

Denture wearers have better options than ever before. Implant-retained or implant-stabilized dentures from Cary Family Dental provide numerous advantages over conventional dentures.

  • Secure in the mouth—no slipping
  • Provides up to 100% natural chewing function
  • Upper denture doesn’t cover as much of the palate
  • Comfortable
  • Little or no gum irritation
  • Doesn’t impair speaking ability
  • Strong and durable
  • Implants prevent bone loss and “sunken face”
  • Allows user to eat any type of food—even steak
  • No adhesive required
  • Minimally invasive oral surgery for implant placement

What Are The Differences Between Fixed and Removable?

Fixed implant-retained dentures (sometimes called screw-in) require more implants than the removable type. They can restore 100% chewing function.

Removable implant dentures (sometimes called snap-in) may require just four implants to stabilize the upper arch and just two for the lower denture. Removable implant-stabilized dentures can restore up to 90% of chewing ability.

Bone Condition
All implants require sufficient healthy bone structure. The condition of your jaw bone affects whether it can support implants and where the posts can be inserted.
