When considering your teeth replacement options, choosing a treatment that restores, feels natural, and maintains functionality is important. Your choice must meet your dental needs, but it also affects the extent of procedures you must participate in, as well as the results. Traditional dentures and implant supported prosthetics are offered at our Honolulu office so you no longer have to hide your smile due to missing teeth. Both restorative options have unique benefits to be considered when selecting a treatment plan.
Removable prosthetics, a method of smile replacement that has been around for centuries, are held by suction or metal framework and dental adhesives. Patients typically remove traditional dentures before bedtime and place them in a cleansing solution. Gum tissues change over time, so full dentures require non-invasive adjustments from time to time.
Partial dentures fill in the voids left by one or more missing teeth and are secured in place by a metal framework that hooks over teeth. Sectional prosthetics do not require any form of surgical procedures or filing of existent teeth.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported restorations feel as natural as your own teeth, and are permanently affixed to implant posts. Implant supported dentures are a long-lasting teeth replacement option that can restore one or more teeth. These prosthetics are designed to be a comfortable and reliable solution to meet your teeth replacement needs since they are anchored to the jawbone. Dental implant replacements are a versatile option as they are able to adapt to a variety of restorations and sizes. Based on the number of implants you will be receiving, your teeth replacement can fasten onto sturdy attachments or be permanently fixed in place.
