Why Choose Aveni Dental Professionals for Implant Dentures?

What Are Implant Dentures?

Traditional dentures rest on top of the gums; suction or adhesive holds them in place. Implant dentures are different. They are anchored in the mouth via prosthetic tooth roots (dental implants in Plymouth) that are surgically inserted into the jawbone. They are thus much stronger and sturdier than their traditional counterparts.

There are a couple different types of implant dentures:

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

These are permanently attached to the implants that support them; they can only be removed by a dental professional. In most cases, fixed implant dentures require 4 – 6 dental implants per arch. Many patients enjoy the convenience of always having their replacement teeth in their mouth.

Removable Implant Dentures

Removable implant dentures, also called overdentures, are easy for patients to remove on their own. They are secured on their implants via ball sockets or a bar attachment, and they usually require fewer dental implants than fixed implant dentures.
