Dentures are unsecured prostheses with very limited success. Most often, dentures are painful, inconvenient and unstable. Such dentures can make chewing foods difficult limiting the foods that you once enjoyed. A patient that is missing an entire row of teeth is in a unique position: a chance to start fresh with a full-arch restoration! While there are other options for treating a full row of missing teeth such as single dental implants and dentures, patients desire a solution that is more affordable, quick and convenient. Technology today allows for our offices to give our patients options.

Same Day Teeth Implants

The demand for immediate replacement teeth has led to a revolution in how we deal with missing teeth: the full-arch restoration. Also known as “implant supported dentures,” this innovative treatment allows our oral surgeons to combine implant technology with dentures to give our patients a new smile and a renewed outlook on life, all in one day!

Do You Need More Information On Dental Implants?

Traditional dentures can be inconvenient, painful and unstable. And while dental implants are an excellent choice for single tooth replacements, on the scale of a full arch, they can be expensive and complicated. However, putting these two treatments together yields a solution that works for nearly everyone: implant supported prosthesis. During this treatment, typically four to six dental implants are placed in the jaw and a full dental bridge or prosthesis is attached to them, giving you a full row of teeth in just one appointment.

Full Arch Replacement Procedure

As with other dental implant procedures, you will be anesthetized and sedated for comfort during the surgery. Post-operation soreness is typically manageable with over-the-counter medications, and any necessary prescriptions will be discussed at your appointment.

The Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures

  • Cost: This treatment can sometimes be done with just four dental implants per arch and it is much more affordable than placing an entire row of implants.
  • Convenience: Replacement teeth can typically be placed during the same appointment as the implants and create teeth in a day outcome.
  • Bone Graft-Free: • Two of the four implants are placed at special angles in the back of the jaw to make the best use of available jawbone. This often eliminates the need for bone grafting or sinus augmentation.

What Are Hybrid Implant Dentures?

If you’re missing most or all of your teeth, there are several tooth replacement options that may benefit you. Dental implants are widely considered the very best tooth replacement option, but for some patients, the cost is prohibitive. That’s why many patients are turning to hybrid implant dentures, an innovative solution for replacing full rows of teeth that is surprisingly affordable. So what are hybrid implant dentures, and why are they quickly becoming the most sought-after tooth replacement option for Tucson dental patients? Here’s what you need to know.
As the name implies, hybrid implant dentures consist of dentures that are fixed onto implants. Just like regular dentures, hybrid implant dentures use a full set of high-quality prosthetics to replace full rows of teeth. But unlike regular dentures, hybrid implant dentures are fixed into your mouth using a set of four dental implants – titanium posts that fuse with your jaw. The dental implants support a titanium or gold bar that anchors a set of acrylic teeth in place. The bar is permanently fixed in one place – which means your dentures won’t move around – and can only be removed by a dentist or oral surgeon.
YOUR OPTIONS

Ball Attachment Denture

Two dental implants are placed in the lower jaw, onto which a denture snaps into place.
This option is more stable than traditional, removable dentures; however there will still be some movement. Sore spots can develop if food is caught underneath. Periodic appointments ensure proper adjustment.
YOUR OPTIONS

Bar Attachment Denture

Referred to above as “overdentures,” this process involves the placing of four-to-six implants in the lower jaw. A custom support bar connects the implants, and a denture with internal retention clips is attached to the support bar.
This option is very popular as the denture is more stable than with ball attachments, yet it is still removable for cleaning.
