Why Choose Us for Implant-Supported Dentures?

At our practice, we take pride in our comprehensive approach to implant-supported dentures. Our process is meticulous and patient-focused, from the initial consultation to your final results. We'll work to make every aspect of your treatment something you feel confident about. From coordinating your care with trusted implant placement specialists to providing options that truly fit your needs, we aim to make your experience a positive one.

What Are Your Implant Denture Options?

Unlike traditional dentures, which rest on the gums, Implant-supported dentures are anchored onto dental implant posts surgically embedded in the jawbone. This provides exceptional stability and promotes the health of the jawbone.

We offer several options for implant-supported dentures, including:

  • Traditional Full-Arch Implant Dentures: Traditional implant-supported dentures offer exceptional stability and are usually seated on six or eight implant posts. These dentures can be made from a wide variety of materials but usually consist of a pink acrylic base and ceramic or porcelain teeth.
  • Snap-on Locator Dentures & Overdentures Implants: These innovative dentures are removable, allowing you to take them off and perform additional cleaning when necessary. Overdentures implants sometimes have an option for an additional support bar, and we will discuss which option will work best for your needs and lifestyle.
  • Hybrid Fixed Dentures: Hybrid dentures screw onto your implant posts, and our dentist will be able to remove them at your regular checkups to clean them and ensure the implants are in good condition. Our hybrid fixed dentures are highly durable and made of zirconia, providing a natural feel and a beautiful appearance.
  • All-on-4® Dentures: All-on-4 is an innovative option for providing dentures where four implant posts are strategically positioned to support the entire arch. This treatment can reduce the impact of implant placement on your jawbone as well as the length of your recovery process. To receive All-on-4 dentures, you'll go through a thorough qualification process to ensure your jawbone is healthy enough to support a denture on four posts.

Why Would I Choose a Removable Implant-Supported Denture?

All of the different kinds of implant-supported dentures offer significant benefits, but there are some small trade-offs in terms of function and other aspects, like how easy it is to repair them. For instance, while fixed dentures provide an exceptional degree of stability, if they are damaged, it's a bit harder to repair them than other removable options.

On the other hand, a snap-on denture might flex more while chewing, but repairs and thorough cleaning can be more straightforward. Our dentist will discuss all of this with you during your initial consultation, helping you make a confident decision.

University City Fixed Denture FAQs

Choosing implant-supported dentures is a significant decision that can transform your oral health and overall quality of life. We understand that this journey comes with numerous questions and considerations. At Kiran Panatch DDS, we're committed to providing you with all the information you need to make an informed choice. Some of the most common questions we encounter include:

What if my jawbone can't support dental implants?

Patients who are considering implant dentures may sometimes need additional work to prepare their smiles for successful implant restorations. Several methods, including bone grafts and sinus lifts, can be used to bolster the jawbone. We work with a trusted specialist who provides these services.

Yes, in many cases, individuals who have successfully undergone treatment for gum disease and have sufficient jawbone health can be good candidates for implant-supported dentures. It's crucial, however, to undergo a thorough evaluation by our dentist to assess your specific situation and determine the best course of action.

It can vary, especially depending on the amount of work that needs to be done prior to implant placement. For instance, if you need tooth extractions, we'll allow for a healing period before moving forward with the implant placement procedure. Overall, it often takes several months to go from initial consultation to final restoration. Our dentist will be able to give you a more defined timeline after evaluating your needs at your first visit.
