What Are Implant Dentures?

A dental implant is a small cylinder, also called a post, that gets surgically placed into the jawbone. It fuses with the surrounding tissue and is able to act as a prosthetic tooth root. Dentures that are attached to dental implants tend to be incredibly sturdy and strong. There are a couple of different types of implant dentures: permanent implant dentures and removable implant dentures. During your consultation, we will recommend the type that we believe is best for you.

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

Fixed implant dentures may also be called permanent implant dentures or hybrid prostheses. They are permanently attached to the implants that support them; the only time they get removed is during dental appointments. Many patients enjoy the convenience of always having their teeth in their mouth. However, permanent implant dentures generally require more posts and greater jawbone density than removable implant dentures.

Removable Implant Dentures

A removable implant denture snaps onto and off of small attachments on the dental implants. It should be taken out of the mouth daily for oral hygiene purposes. A removable implant denture may require just 2 – 5 implants per arch to get all the support it needs.
