Does the term “dentures” have a negative connotation? At Compassionate Dental Care, our job is to change that. Dentures are commonly known as a way to provide the ability to eat and communicate by using an entire set of replacement teeth. Typically held in place with a temporary dental adhesive, dentures are often taken out at the end of the day and put back in the next day.

While there’s nothing wrong with having dentures, other options are available through advances in dental technology. Fixed implant dentures are a great alternative to traditional dentures. Our denture implants can give you a full, complete smile without the temporary feel you may get with traditional dentures.

What Are Denture Implants?

Implant-supported dentures consist of a complete set of teeth held in place by dental implants that are strategically placed through the mouth. Implant-supported dentures are an excellent option for patients with long-term tooth loss, which can lead to gums and bone density deterioration.

Bone Density, Health, and Facial Structure

The bone of your jaw and skull that forms around your teeth consists of a living bone structure that must constantly be stimulated to maintain healthy bone density. Natural teeth usually provide this stimulation, so when a tooth or several teeth are lost, the bone and gum in that area begin to recede or fade.

When this happens for an extended period, you can lose the definition in your face, causing your skin to sag and giving you a more aged appearance. Traditional dentures don’t solve this problem of lack of facial definition.

While traditional dentures can restore your ability to eat and communicate, only dental implants supporting a complete set of teeth can promote bone density and growth. Dental implants can improve your facial structure with definition and new life and make you look younger.

Snap-On Dentures

You can also consider snap-on dentures, a type of removable denture implant, instead of traditional implants. Snap-on dentures can be taken out like conventional dentures, but they are snapped into a retainer-like structure held in place with dental implants.

If you’d prefer the ability to remove your teeth at the end of the day or whenever necessary, snap-on dentures are a great alternative to traditional dentures. You still get the benefits of stimulating bone growth and the ability to remove your teeth when you want.

Traditional Dentures Cost

How much are dentures? That’s an excellent question, especially when considering complete dentures cost next to fixed implant cost. Many factors play into the bottom-line price of a full set of dentures, including:

  • What type of dentures you choose.
  • If you need a full arch denture replacement or partial dentures.
  • How many dental implants are required?
  • If you need a bone graft due to insufficient bone density.

All-on-4® Treatment

What is the All-on-4® Treatment? Thanks to remarkable advances in dental technology, we now have a way to provide you with a complete set of upper and lower teeth with just four implants on each gumline.

This is known as the All-on-4® Treatment. This procedure is also often called full arch dental implants because you can get a full set of teeth on each arch with just four implants securing each denture.

All-on-4® Treatment Dental Implants Cost

Your All-on-4® Treatment cost depends on whether you need one or both arches and whether your bone density is high enough for dental implants. Some patients may need a bone graft. You can talk to us anytime to discuss pricing and get a feel for your unique needs.
