Enjoy life with denture implants
In contrast to traditional dentures, a denture implants make your denture stable. Dr. Elseweifi in Chicago provides many types of implant dentures.
Implant Dentures Provide Confidence
In contrast to implant dentures, traditional dentures are associated with difficulties of everyday function such as chewing, laughing, and speaking. These difficulties result in lack of confidence which can limit your desire for social interaction and may even cause depression. In addition, implant dentures, supported by dental implants, prevent progressive bone loss with collapse of the bite and sagging facial tissues. At Bucktown Dental Associates, in Bucktown, Chicago, we offer many types of implant dentures. Along with improvements in everyday life, implant dentures (implant overdentures) may promote additional health benefits:
An implant denture help prevent premature aging,
They restore natural chewing function,
Implants supporting dentures minimize bone loss,
Implant dentures improve long-term health and nutrition, and
- Dentures supported by denture implants do not need denture adhesives
What are Implant Dentures
Implant dentures use denture implants anchored to jawbone to provide a solid foundation. Implant dentures include:
Fixed implant dentures
Removable implant dentures - overdentures
Mini implant dentures
Fixed Implant Dentures - Hybrid Denture
Fixed implant dentures, also known as hybrid restorations, or hybrid dentures are only removable by the dentist. A hybrid implant denture is attached to four or more denture implants by way of a titanium framework. It provides maximum stability, esthetics, and function.
A hybrid implant denture is also a great choice for patients desiring a fixed restoration but have excessive loss of bone. Patients with excessive bone loss require replacement of the pink - gum part. If this is not done, the restoration on dental implants would have very long crowns which creates an unnatural smile. A hybrid denture, in addition to being fixed, restores the missing gum tissue and creates a natural smile. All-on-4 dental implants use only 4 implants to support a full arch hybrid denture.
Removable Implant Dentures (Implant Overdentures)
Removable implant dentures (implant overdentures) are anchored to two or more denture implants by way of a titanium bar or attachments. A removable implant denture is an affordable choice for patients who have bone limitations but desire a more retentive prosthesis. An implant denture, tightly held by dental implants, improves retention, function, and speech. Implant dentures will allow you to chew your food better and speak more clearly. Studies have proven that overdentures contribute to improved chewing efficiency and phonetics
A bar implant denture utilizes a titanium bar that distributes occlusal loads more evenly across four or more dental implants. A bar overdenture is ideal for patients with a heavy bite or when the dental implants have been placed in softer bone.
Mini Implant Dentures
A mini Implant denture is a low cost, removable denture that is anchored by a simple O-ring retention system to mini dental implants.
