Mini Dental Implants
Sebring Family Dentistry offers Mini Dental Implants as a replacement option for missing teeth and as a way to stabilize dentures. In this procedure, titanium supports are surgically fused with your jawbone, and act as an anchor for naturally looking false teeth.

Implant Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures are a great option for patients looking to restore their smile in a more secure and permanent way. Regular dentures rest on top of the teeth and gums, but implant-supported dentures allow you to include dental implants as a more permanent solution for some of your dental health challenges. This type of implant is typical for patients who don’t have any teeth in the jaw.
What are the differences between complete and implant-supported dentures?
Complete dentures are custom-made to fit a patient’s mouth. They are removable and are typically held in place by suction and sometimes an oral adhesive. The more surface area available in the mouth, the easier it is for a set of dentures to stay in place. Conventional dentures can cause sores in the mouth because they are constantly rubbing on the gums. This is why some patients prefer implant-supported dentures. They can be more comfortable and more secure, though they tend to be more expensive. Implant-supported dentures get their strength from the jawbone. Dental implants are completely secure due to the fact that they fuse to the jawbone overtime.
An implant-supported denture is an overdenture that provides patients with a more secure way to restore their smile. Implant-supported dentures are usually best suited for the bottom jaw, though they can be used for both the top and bottom jaw. Implants will have a special attachment that allows the denture to snap in place. Dentures should be removed and cleaned every night.
