Why Choose Mogell Dental Associates for Implant Dentures?

What Are Implant Dentures?

They are anchored in the jawbone via prosthetic tooth roots (dental implants in Boca Raton). They are therefore much sturdier and stronger than their traditional counterparts.

There are two main types of implant dentures:

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

As their name implies, these are permanently attached to the implants that support them. They can only be removed by a dental professional. They typically require 4 – 6 implants per arch. Many patients love the convenience of always having their prosthetic teeth in their mouth.

Removable Implant Dentures

Removable implant dentures are easy for patients to remove on their own. They are secured in place with ball or bar attachments. They usually require fewer implants per arch than their permanently fixed counterparts.
