If you need to replace all of your teeth at once — or you’re considering upgrading your traditional dentures — there are two popular options to consider: dental implants and implant-secured overdentures (also known as “stabilized” or “implant supported” dentures).

Hybrid Implant “Dentures”

Traditional dental implants can be used for a variety of missing tooth needs. Perhaps you only have one or two teeth that need to be replaced, and that’s fine. But you can also use pairs or sets of implants to anchor permanent multi-tooth restorations, such as bridges or hybrid appliances. In the case of a hybrid treatment, anywhere from 4-6 implants will support the fixed, contoured “hybrid denture” that spans the width of your smile.

Implant-Supported Overdentures

And then there are implant-supported overdentures. These treatments are like the best of both worlds: convenient removable dentures but added stability underneath. While the appliances are still removable and look like a traditional denture, they “snap” onto supporting implants in your mouth. Anywhere from 2-4 implants are effective. Overdentures are ideal for people who may not qualify for a fixed hybrid treatment, or who want a more modest upgrade from their traditional “plate”.

Dr Berne and his team are the best; professional, friendly, knowledgeable and caring. They made an uneasy process for me go very smooth. I’m so happy with my beautiful smile that his skilled hands gave me, and would recommend him to anyone looking to restore their smile too!!!

The whole staff was so nice and treated me like family. Dr Anderson and his assistant were both so funny and I felt so comfortable and like I’d known them for years. Dr Anderson and his staff are the best ever! I would highly recommend them!

The office is very friendly and very professional. My dentist is Dr. Doug Yoon and on my very first visit he introduced me to the entire staff that would be assisting with my care, which made me feel confident that I had chosen the right practice. It has only gone uphill from there. I love that place!!
