If you are missing all of your teeth, in the past there was only one option was available to the restore your ability chew and smile and that was a complete denture. Now with Dental Implants there are many options available depending on how much bone you have available for dental implants. As a Dentist it brings me great pleasure to be able to offer my patients in Manhattan and Brooklyn several dental Implant options to help them eat and smile again. Patient now can get dental implants placed and have a Dental Implant Retained fixed (non removable) Teeth or a Dental Implant Over-Denture. To see what option fits your budget give a call at (212)725-2002 for our Midtown New York location or (718)615-2272 for our Brooklyn New York location. In this I will be discussing Implant Over-Denture.
Over-Dentures replace missing teeth and their adjacent tissues with a removable dental appliance made of acrylic resin and, in some cases, a combination of metals. The Over-Denture is supported by two Dental Implants on the lower Jaw and four Dental Implants in the upper. There are two type of Implant Over-Dentures:
1) Bar Implant Over-Denture: After Placing Dental Implants a mold is taken of the Implant Position and sent to the dental laboratory. A metal bar is made that screw into the implants and splints them together; the denture then clips on to the metal bar
2) Locator Implant Over-Denture: After Placing your Implants special parts called locator abutments are order to screw into the Dental Implants. A dental mold is taken of the locator abutments sent to the lab to begin the process of making the dentures that snap onto the implants.
At Bright Smile Design Dental New York we have experience that the Locator Over-Denture is better.
The cost of dental implant dentures depend on the amount of implants used and type of denture is used. Get your personalized dental implant quote with your free dental implant consultation with our dental implant dentist.
