For patients who are missing several teeth or even a complete arch of teeth, our periodontist, Dr. Robert Ferrell, might suggest the use of implant-supported dentures for stability, natural performance and appearance. Here at Dr. Robert Ferrell, DMD, MS, we offer All-on-4 dental implants and “teeth in a day” services to rehabilitate function in your mouth. These services will take considerably less time than regular implant procedures and are completed all in one visit. To learn more about implant supported dentures in South Ogden, Utah, contact us today at 801-334-9258.
There are three main types of implant-supported dentures that our team typically works with.
Overdentures are a great option for patients who would prefer to have fewer implants. These dentures fit over two to four dental implants and will attach to a bar that has been fixed to natural teeth or an implant post for extra stability. Overdentures can be easily removed by the patient for cleaning and they will snap back into place for added secureness during the rest of your day-to-day activities. This will help improve function in your mouth and restore your speaking abilities.
Screw-retained dentures are mounted to dental implant posts, removable by the doctor when needed. These dentures can require four to six dental implants, or All-on-4 implants. Hybrid dentures like these include the stability of regular implant posts and can also be easily taken off for cleaning. To ensure you never have to spend time without teeth or dentures, our “teeth in a day” procedures involve the removal of your teeth and the placement of your new implants all in one appointment. On the very same day you come in for your procedure, you can leave our office with a full set of teeth!
