We have multiple implant denture options, from removable and semi-removable to permanent dentures. Each one offers stability that traditional dentures cannot achieve. With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Apel can skillfully transform and secure your smile.
What Are Mini Dental Implants?
Mini dental implants are smaller than standard dental implants, which require substantial bone density for placement. Fortunately, mini implants are unique because they can be inserted in thinner jawbones.
The secret behind their effectiveness lies in the way they’re designed. Interestingly, mini dental implants have a ball-and-socket attachment system, allowing a more secure hold. As a result of this design, mini implant dentures minimize the chances of slippage and discomfort, making them an ideal choice for patients seeking stable and functional solutions.
Exploring Denture Alternatives
With these denture alternatives, you can regain confidence, enjoy your favorite foods, and speak without hesitation.
- Snap-On Dentures: First, snap-on overdentures offer a practical alternative to traditional dentures. These dentures are securely attached to mini dental implants using a snap-in mechanism. Here’s how it works: 4-8 mini dental implants are strategically placed in your jawbone, and the dentures have corresponding attachments. With a simple snap, your dentures are firmly in place. Say goodbye to adhesive creams and the fear of denture displacement during meals or conversations. Snap-on dentures provide excellent stability and comfort, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and speak confidently.
- Six on Fix Bridges: In addition, a Fix on Six® bridge is another remarkable option for those seeking an even more stable solution for replacing missing teeth. This alternative involves placing 6-10 mini dental implants in your jawbone to act as study anchors for a roundhouse dental bridge. These bridges stay in place and provide a natural-looking, functional smile. The semi-removable bridge is only removed by Dr. Apel for cleaning and maintenance during your routine checkups.
- Non-removable Roundhouse Bridges: Lastly, non-removable zirconia roundhouse bridges are the ultimate choice for individuals who want a full set of teeth that are fixed and highly stable. The bridges are cemented securely in place and cared for like actual teeth. This alternative involves placing 10-12 mini dental implants around your jaw, creating a strong support system for a complete bridge of replacement teeth. The result? A smile that looks, feels, and functions like your natural teeth. Zirconia roundhouse bridges offer unparalleled durability, comfort, and aesthetics, making them a top-tier option for those seeking a long-term solution to tooth loss.
