Implant Dentures: Fixed Or Removable?

implant dentures Atlanta

For anyone who has lost all of their teeth, implant-supported dentures from Flax Dental in Atlanta may sound like a dream come true: dentures that are attached to the jaw, and surpass traditional dentures in appearance and functionality.

Implant-retained or implant-stabilized dentures both provide numerous advantages over standard dentures.

  • Secure in the mouth—no slipping
  • Furnishes up to 100% natural chewing function
  • Upper denture doesn’t cover as much of the palate
  • Comfortable
  • Little or no gum irritation
  • Don’t impair speaking ability
  • Strong and durable
  • Implants prevent bone loss and “sunken face”
  • Minimally invasive oral surgery for implant placement

Differences Between Fixed and Removable

Fixed implant-retained dentures (sometimes called screw-in) require more implants than the removable type. They can restore 100% chewing function.

Removable implant dentures (sometimes called snap-in) may require just four implants to stabilize the upper arch and just 2 for the lower denture. Removable implant-stabilized dentures can restore up to 90% of chewing ability.

Bone Condition

Both types require a sufficient amount of healthy bone structure for placement of the implants. The condition of your jaw bone affects whether or not it can support implants and where the posts can be inserted.

Convenience

Fixed implant-stabilized dentures don’t have to be removed for cleaning. Patients who have found it inconvenient to clean traditional dentures would face the same issue with removable implant-retained dentures.
