A Healthier Alternative to Dentures
If you are experiencing multiple failing or missing teeth, or are already missing all your teeth, you know how difficult everyday activities can become. Without teeth, self-confidence can suffer and it becomes difficult to eat, speak and even smile. Often, patients choose dentures as a tooth replacement option, allowing them to have a more natural appearance and improved bite. At Gloucester Dental, we offer a more secure, healthier alternative to dentures and missing teeth—full arch dental implants and implant supported dentures. These options use dental implants to hold a full-arch prosthesis in place, improving security, bite and chewing strength, and appearance.
The Full Arch Dental Implant Difference
- Restores facial appearance
- Dental implants preserve jaw health
- Eat foods without restriction
- No pastes or adhesives
- Improved security
Full Arch Dental Implants vs. Implant Supported Dentures
When dentures are stabilized within the jaw with dental implants, patients enjoy many benefits to their comfort, oral health and quality of life. Both full arch dental implants and implant supported dentures rest comfortably and securely on implant posts, not the gums, which prevents chafing, bone deterioration and looseness within the mouth. Oftentimes, patients already wearing dentures choose implant supported denture devices by retrofitting their removable denture with dental implants. Those who are newly missing teeth often choose full arch dental implant devices for a more comfortable fit.
Full Arch Dental Implants
With full arch dental implants, we place four to six dental implants within strategic areas of your jaw with the most bone, which will support a full arch prosthesis. The prosthesis is securely screwed into the implants and will only be removed by your dentist allowing you to virtually forget about them, besides normal brushing and flossing.
Implant Supported Dentures
Similar to full arch dental implants, by utilizing two or more dental implants, we can attach your denture device to dental implant posts or a bar attachment. When the denture is connected, it will not shift or click or require adhesives, but will provide you with a stronger bite. The denture is also removable for cleaning.
