There are numerous names like implant dentures, all-on-4 dentures, implant-supported dentures, permanent dentures, denture implants, snap-in dentures, all-on-8, full denture implants. On the whole, they all state the same meaning that implants give support to a complete denture. It is a very durable and comfortable way of replacing your missing teeth.
Teeth lost due to gum disease, and tooth decay can be retained by removable dentures. But, implants can add stable support and fixed prosthetic replacement for teeth. In order to stabilize dentures, implant placement is the right choice.
What are hybrid dentures?
A hybrid denture is a unique implant-supported prosthesis. The combination benefits a removable denture with those of a fixed replacement, making it a hybrid. This suits best for people who have gradually lost a significant amount of jawbone because of their missing teeth.
What happens in an implant denture treatment?
Before anything, you are examined very well to check if you have any gum disease. If it is found that you have any, then it will be treated first. The x-rays will be taken to determine your jawbone density to check if that is enough to support the implant.
An implant denture is a two-phase process just like any other implant-supported restorations. The primary step is the surgery in which four dental implants are placed into the jaw, hence comes the name All-on-4. A new permanent denture is restored with the help of dental implants. Implant retained dentures provide the best retention to a permanent denture with attachments that lock onto another supporting attachment on the dental implants.
