This message from The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City is about restoring smiles with dental implants.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw. One implant can support one artificial tooth, while several can support a bridge,or even a full dental arch.
What Are The Differences Between Fixed and Removable?
- Fixed implant-retained dentures (sometimes called screw-in) require more implants than the removable type. They can restore 100% chewing function.
- Removable implant dentures (sometimes called snap-in) may require just four implants to stabilize the upper arch and just 2 for the lower denture. Removable implant-stabilized dentures can restore up to 90% of chewing ability.
