During a consultation at our Atlanta practice, Dr. Rodgers can help you determine which treatment option will most effectively suit your needs.
If you are considering an implant-supported denture, it’s important to understand the pros and cons to each option. Removable implant-supported appliances are often called “snap on” dentures. These are anchored to the jawbone with two to six implants per arch. (The more implants that are placed, the more stability you will have.) While these dentures stay put when you need them to, they can also be removed. This makes cleaning them much easier.
Permanent denture placement is often referred to as fixed full-arch replacement. Unlike “snap on” dentures, these appliances are non-removable. Once they are in place, they can only be removed by your doctor. Special instructions are provided for proper maintenance, as you will have to clean around the implants and underneath your appliance for optimal oral health.
If you’ve been considering removable or permanent dentures, schedule an appointment with Dr. Rodgers. He can design a personalized treatment plan to meet your needs. Contact us online anytime or call us at 404-577-6620.
