HYBRID IMPLANT DENTURE
Here in the united States there are two types of dentists that are considered to be implant experts. Both Oral Surgeons and Periodontal Surgeons are considered to be the highest level experts in implant surgery. Here at RTC Dental we have a board certified periodontal specialist to help answer questions you may have about implant dentures. Once we develop a treatment plan for you in our office we will also refer you to a local oral surgeon to obtain a second opinion from a different prospective. Ultimately, when you are ready to select your surgeon (periodontal specialist versus oral surgeon) then you will experience a quick and relatively simple implant surgery in which the specialist dentist can place 5-6 implants for you.
Our periodontal surgeon (Dr. Sang-Hoon Park) will require 6 solid implants to support a permanently attached ‘hybrid denture’. This will be a beautiful denture made of titanium and acrylic. This ‘Hybrid denture’ will be permanently screwed onto the 6 endosteal implants. This permanently attached prosthesis will provide a complete set of natural appearing teeth. This ‘hybrid denture’ will look and feel just like a natural set of teeth. You will want to have this denture professionally removed and cleaned by a dentist at least once every 12-24 months. The dentist should also replace the screws with brand new screws each time the prosthesis is removed.
Supercompetetive Pricing :
- 6x Endosteal Implants = $9000
- (placed by a board certified periodontal specialist)
- (bone grafting procedures such as ridge augmentation, block grafts, sinus lifts are all charged separately)
- 1x ‘Hybrid Implant Denture’ = $7000
We are also capable of making Porcelain Fused To Metal (PFM) bridges that will be permanently cemented onto your implants. These PFM bridges are not removed for cleaning or maintenance. PFM bridges provide a permanent option that looks and functions like natural teeth. They remain permanently cemented on the implants and the patient only visits a dentist once every 6 months for normal hygiene and checkup appointments.
Furthermore, Dr. Sang-Hoon Park can place as few as 4 ‘mini-implants’ for the purpose of ‘implant over dentures’. This ‘implant over denture’ is not nearly as high-performance as the ‘Hybrid Denture’. However, this ‘implant over denture’ option is better than a normal denture with no implants atall. Thus, it is a compromise option that is less expensive than a ‘Hybrid Denture’. Please visit our office and allow us to answer any questions you may have about these options.
We also have our own CAD/CAM robotic milling capabilities that allow us to fabricate custom titanium and ceramic abutments in addition to implant crowns and bridges. We also have a industry leading Erbium & Neodymium dental laser system to provide the absolute best results for our patients. We welcome you to RTC Dental, one of Northern Virginia’s most advanced dental offices.
More About IMPLANT OVERDENTURE
Are you tired of your loose lower denture? Here at RTC dental we offer a cost effective, simple solution for the unhappy denture patient. With as few as four mini implants, patients can gain significant amounts of retention and stability for their dentures. If you are hoping for a straightforward solution to your denture problem, the 4x mini-implant overdenture is a possible option for you. Implant over dentures are by no means perfect and will not feel like a natural complete set of teeth. However, its better than a lower denture with no implants at all.
If you have heard of low cost mini implant solutions, be aware there could be issues with long term stability and cost you more in the end. At this time, mini implants have not been shown to be effective as long term solutions. We certainly place mini implants but do so in conjunction with a larger more traditional implant geared to last your lifetime. If you would like to schedule a general consultation to discuss your options, call us at (703) 956-9444 to meet with our periodontal specialist Dr. Sang-Hoon Park.
