Implant Dentures: Fixed Or Removable?

implant dentures Lehi

Today, dental patients with missing teeth are fortunate to have a tooth replacement choice that is far better than both traditional dentures and dental bridges. Implant-retained or implant-stabilized dentures both provide numerous advantages over standard dentures.

  • Secure in the mouth—no slipping
  • Furnishes up to 100% natural chewing function
  • The upper denture doesn't cover as much of the palate
  • Comfortable
  • Little or no gum irritation
  • Doesn't reduce the speaking ability
  • Strong and durable
  • Implants prevent bone loss and "sunken face"
  • Allows the 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 4 implants to stabilize the upper arch and just 2 for the lower denture. Removable implant-stabilized dentures can restore up to 90% of chewing ability.

How Do I Choose?

Call 18017664042 to schedule an implant denture consultation with Doctor Bateman. The following factors will impact the recommendation.

Bone Condition

Implants require a sufficient amount of healthy bone structure for placement. The condition of your jaw bone affects whether or not it can support implants and where the posts can be inserted.

Cost

Fixed implant dentures cost more but some people believe the benefits outweigh the extra expense.

Convenience

Fixed implant-stabilized dentures don't have to be removed for cleaning. Patients who have found it inconvenient to clean conventional dentures would face the same issue with removable implant-retained dentures.

Diet

Fixed dentures are stronger than removable dentures. Patients who prefer foods that are harder to chew should consider this.

Sleep Conditions

People with TMJ or sleep apnea may find it more difficult to manage these conditions if they have to remove their dentures at night.
