Removable Implant Denture Vs Fixed Implant Denture

Assuming you’ve already decided on dental implants to replace your missing teeth, the next decision to make is choosing between fixed vs. removable dentures. The difference between the two options is that removable implant-supported dentures can be snapped on and off the abutments whenever you need to remove them, while fixed dentures are permanent and can only be removed by a dentist.

No matter which type of implant-supported denture you decide on, you can feel good knowing that you’ll be getting the benefits of a stronger bite, a better fitting denture, and a more confident smile. Here’s what to know about fixed vs. removable implant options.

Removable Implant-Supported Dentures (Snap-On)

Removable implant-supported dentures fall somewhere between traditional dentures and fixed implant-supported dentures, offering patients many of the benefits of fixed implant-supported dentures, but also some of the drawbacks of traditional dentures. Although they don’t require messy adhesives and they’re securely snapped onto the implants, so they never slip or shift, they still feel more like traditional dentures. They’re slightly bulkier and they need to be removed each night for cleaning. In the morning, you’ll snap them back in.

If too much jawbone has already been lost, Snap-On dentures are a better option than fixed because they require less support than a permanent restoration. Another distinct advantage for many patients is that removable implant denture options are much more affordable than fixed implant dentures. In addition, removable implant supported dentures are easier to keep clean since they can be taken out every day for hygiene.

Fixed Implant-Supported Dentures (Screw-In)

Fixed implant-supported dentures are an option that looks, feels, and functions just like natural teeth because they are permanently attached to your dental implants. You don’t have to remove them every night for cleaning or put them in a glass of water beside the bed while you sleep—you might even forget that you’re wearing dentures at all!

Traditionally, fixed implant-supported dentures required more jawbone for support than removable dentures, so they weren’t a good fit for patients who had already experienced large amounts of bone loss. Now, full arch with only four implants can be used for some patients as an alternative. Bone grafting, too, may be used in order to strengthen the jaw for fixed implant-supported dentures.

Fixed dentures are brushed just like you would with natural teeth, although you’ll also need to be mindful of cleaning the small space where your restoration meets the gums. Many patients use water flossers, floss threaders, or small interproximal brushes to facilitate easier cleaning.

Fixed vs. Removable: Which Is Best?

Every patient has their own treatment goals and dental needs, so there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. The best way to determine which choice is right for you is to visit our office for a consultation. We’ll conduct a thorough exam, go over your dental and medical history, and talk to you about your expectations in order to come up with a treatment plan that’s right for you.

FAQs

Does dental insurance cover the procedure?

This question has a complicated answer. Because implant dentures involve several separate dental procedures (extractions, dental implants, prosthetic restorations), it is possible to use some dental insurance benefits to cover this treatment. Coverage varies widely by both carrier and specific plan, so it is important for you to understand what your specific dental plan covers.
Most insurance plans cover at least a portion of tooth extractions, and some will cover a portion of prosthetic restorations. We have seen a few insurance plans catching up with the times and covering a portion of dental implants as well. In order to know your specific coverage, our front office team can communicate with your insurance company before you complete the procedure.

Can I be sedated and is that included in cost?
Yes, we partner with a surgery center that provides sedation. The cost of sedation is included in the surgery fee.
What about my post-surgery diet?

Because of our prefabrication process, your new teeth will be strong and stable. You will be able to eat most foods right away except for hard, brittle or chewy foods. A great rule of thumb we tell our patients during the healing process is if you can cut it with a fork, then it is safe to chew. Once you are passed the healing process in 4-6 months then you can return a normal diet.

How long does the procedure take?

After your initial consultation and diagnostic procedures (CT scan, etc.), your implants and new teeth will be placed all in one appointment, even if you need extractions, in about 3–6 hours. With implant dentures, you are able to arrive at our office and get your new smile within a day with a beautiful set of fixed or removable, functional teeth.

What is the success rate of implant dentures?
Published studies show a 98.2% success rate. Occasionally, an implant will fail. Knowing this, we carefully evaluate bone quality and quantity prior to your procedure, and will place six implants if we feel it is a necessary precaution, making our success rate even higher.
What type of cleaning is required after an implant is placed?
Dental implants should be treated like your natural teeth, daily brushing and flossing is recommended. Our dental hygienists will review oral hygiene instructions with you and will recommend the most appropriate oral hygiene treatment plan to fit your needs. We also recommend at least a yearly check of the implant prosthesis at our office.
