Removable dentures can be supported by two or more implants that provide stability. The denture “snaps” onto the implants and can be removed for cleaning. It is different from a conventional denture because it provides retention in the mouth, functioning more like natural teeth.
Fixed implant supported dentures are a more durable solution with teeth secured on four or more dental implants. This type of denture cannot be removed.
When replacing several teeth or all of your teeth, a fixed bridge is anchored to your dental implants. A bridge replaces one or more missing teeth by spanning an area that has no teeth. The bridge is held firmly in place by dental implants on each side of the missing tooth or teeth.
