According to one estimate, roughly 36 million Americans are missing all of their teeth. Many of them decide to get traditional dentures, and their prosthetics provide them with improved aesthetics and dental function. However, dentures do have their drawbacks. Is there a better solution? For most patients, yes. We often recommend implant dentures in Hamden. Contact New Haven Dental Group today to learn more about this remarkable form of tooth replacement.

What Are Implant Dentures?

Dental implants in Hamden are prosthetic tooth roots that we insert into the jawbone. They provide a strong base of support for the artificial teeth that go on top of them. Implant dentures rely on implants, rather than natural suction, to stay in place. They are thus much sturdier and stronger than traditional dentures.

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

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

These are permanently attached to the implants that support them; they can only be removed by a dental professional. Usually, they require 4 – 6 dental implants or more per arch to remain in place. Many patients enjoy the convenience and consistency of always having their prosthetic teeth in their mouth.

Removable Implant Dentures

Removable implant dentures, sometimes called overdentures or “Snap-On” dentures usually require fewer dental implants than permanent dentures. They are easy for patients to remove on their own for hygiene and maintenance purposes. They are often the best type of prosthetic for individuals who have lost a degree of bone density in their jaw.

Although the implant denture procedure is longer and more complex than that of traditional dentures, the end result is well worth it.
