What are the benefits of teeth supported by implants?
- People who opt for implant-supported bridges and dentures are more confident when they talk, laugh, and eat in public. You'll never have to worry about your false teeth slipping or falling out while you eat or are engaged in conversation.
- Implant-supported bridges and dentures are far more comfortable because they are secure and feel like natural teeth. There is also less irritation of gum tissue; patients who have conventional dentures often suffer pain and canker sores.
- Implant-supported bridges and dentures look more natural than conventional dentures.
- Patients with conventional dentures have difficulty with speaking clearly. Slurred speech and clicking noises are common problems. Implant-supported dentures can help you relax and talk easily with a more clear and natural voice.
- Best of all, with fixed implant restorations, there is no need to use denture adhesives.
Full mouth implant options

"Great option"- Connected teeth with pink porcelain or acrylic
This options is great for people who want to have all their teeth replaced with implants but have some bone loss or infections. You will have 4-6 implants supporting all your teeth. You will have pink ceramic next to the teeth that looks like your gums. You will get teeth within one day.
"Economical option"- Snap in and out dentures
This option is good for those who already have dentures and want something more stable. The dentures must be taken out at night and washed. You will have 3-4 implants that will allow the denture to be more stable. These dentures will require maintenance once or twice a year to replace some parts. The dentist's restorative fees are usually cheaper than "fixed" implant options. You will need to heal for several months before you can snap in the teeth.
