It is estimated that more than 36 million Americans are missing all of their teeth. Many of them choose to get traditional dentures because they are convenient and relatively affordable. Unfortunately, though, they do have their drawbacks. A better solution is available! We often recommend implant dentures in Lebanon as the best way to address extensive tooth loss. Contact Santavicca Dental Professionals today to learn more about this remarkable treatment.

What Are Implant Dentures?

Dental implants in Lebanon are prosthetic tooth roots. They are made out of a biocompatible titanium alloy, and they resemble small screws. We insert them at strategic locations throughout the jawbone, and they are able to provide the base of support for a custom denture. Implant dentures are much sturdier and longer-lasting than their traditional counterparts.

There are a few different types of implant dentures. Depending on your unique circumstances, we might recommend that you receive one of the following:

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

As their name implies, these are permanently attached to the implants that support them. They can only be removed by a dental professional. Many patients enjoy the convenience of always having their teeth in their mouth. However, this type of restoration does require more jawbone density than removable implant dentures.

Removable Implant Dentures

Removable implant dentures, also called overdentures or “Snap-On” dentures, are easy for patients to remove on their own. They “snap” onto dental implants via ball- or bar-shaped attachments. They typically require just 2 – 3 dental implants per arch (as opposed to four or more, as is the case with permanent implant dentures).
