The three different types of implant supported-dentures offered at The Inner West Dental Implant Centre
When you visit us for your initial consultation we will assess your oral health and determine which is the best treatment option for you. The three implant supported overdentures are:
A fixed overdenture is attached to your jaw with dental implants. At The Inner West Dental Implant Centre we use the All-on-4 system to carry out this procedure. The advantage of this system is that you only need 4-6 implants to replace all the teeth on your upper or lower jaw. This denture can be removed by your dentist to be cleaned and maintained.
This is similar to a fixed overdenture with one clear exception. Once the necessary number of implants is placed, a bar is attached to the implants to support the denture. Your new denture will able to clip into place and you will be able to remove it for cleaning.
An implant stabilized denture is when a small number of implants stabilise your denture. This is similar to fixed implant supported denture with the exception that you can take it out each night and clean it.
