  • Cosmetic dentures, or facelift dentures, are removable dentures that replace entire arches of missing teeth and enhance your smile and overall appearance. Composed of gum-colored material and high-quality acrylic teeth, these dentures increase facial height in a natural looking way while helping restore the functions of your mouth.
  • Conventional partial dentures are used to replace a series of missing teeth in an arch rather than all of your teeth. They are typically made with clasps that attach to your existing teeth. At Infinite Smiles, we can fabricate partial dentures that “click” into your healthy teeth, avoiding the need for clasps and ensuring optimum health and enhanced appearance.
  • Implant-supported and implant-retained dentures are secured using clips that attach to strategically placed dental implants. Typically, we will use two to four implants to secure your dentures, most commonly with our All-on-4 dental implants method.

  • They’ll restore your chewing force to almost the same level as your natural teeth!
  • You will no longer have to rely on dental adhesive to keep your teeth in place.
  • Patients whose dentures cause gagging can eliminate the problem for good, as we can use dentures without palates (plus no adhesives to contribute to the gagging!).
  • You’ll prevent further bone loss, because implants provide jawbone stimulation (chewing, speaking, etc.) to strengthen your bone.
  • You’ll look years younger with the structure implants provide, eliminating that sagging facial appearance common to those without teeth.

Implant-Supported Fixed Prosthesis (Hybrid Dentures)

Non-removable, permanent dentures are great for those living with missing teeth or a terrible removable denture. We’ll strategically place four or six dental implants and then affix permanent replacement teeth on top. Our fixed implant-supported dentures provide the most secure way to stabilize your teeth and restore oral functions. These All-on-4 or All-on-6 dental implants can even be placed in a single day!

What Can You Expect from Your Hybrid Dentures?

 

  • You will never have to remove your dentures or worry about them slipping out!
  • You will eliminate the need for messy adhesive.
  • Your overall appearance, smile, and function will be restored to what it was when you had natural teeth.
  • You can now enjoy eating whatever you want – which can also improve your nutrition and thus the quality of your life.
