6. Solutions That Fit Your Needs
At Diving Smiles in Boston, we don’t offer just one dental implant solution. We offer many solutions that can help people get the dental implant solution that fits their needs, including their budget. This is especially true for people who need to replace all their teeth in an arch. You can choose from:
- Full dentures with no implants
- Snap-on dentures with 2 dental implants.
- Snap-on dentures with 4 dental implants
- Permanently attached dentures with 5 or 6 dental implants
Full dentures without dental implants are the least secure option, but they are also the least expensive option. Some people choose this option because they don’t want surgery.
Snap-on dentures with 2 dental implants are quite secure, but most of the bite force still rests on your gums. You will have good bite force with your front teeth but less efficient chewing.
Snap-on dentures with 4 dental implants are very secure, and they provide more support for chewing as well as biting.
Permanently attached dentures with 5 or 6 dental implants are fully secured, and they provide full support for biting and chewing. Properly fitted, these dentures provide nearly the same bite force and chewing force as natural teeth.
