That is why the experts at Northborough Dental Associates often recommend implant dentures instead. We can handle this advanced procedure from beginning to end and provide you with new teeth that are strong, long lasting, and aesthetically pleasing.

Why Choose Northborough Dental Associates for Implant Dentures?

What Are Implant Dentures?

Traditional dentures rest on top of the gums, relying on adhesive or natural suction to stay in place. Implant dentures in Northborough are different. They are anchored in the mouth by prosthetic tooth roots (dental implants), which provide the denture with remarkable stability, strength, and function.

There are a few different types of implant dentures. Depending on your circumstances, your dentist may recommend one of the following:

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

Sometimes called “hybrid prostheses,” fixed implant dentures are permanently attached to the dental implants in Northborough that support them. Only a dental professional can remove them. They usually require 4 – 6 prosthetic tooth roots for each arch. Many patients are drawn to fixed implant dentures because they are so comfortable, and they can be cared for similarly to natural teeth.

Removable Implant Dentures

As their name implies, these dentures are easy for patients to remove on their own. They simply “snap” onto and off of small attachments. These typically require fewer dental implants than fixed dentures (perhaps 2 – 5 implants per arch). Many patients who have lost a bit of bone density in their jaw are candidates for this type of restoration.
