Implant-Supported Hybrid Dentures

An implant supported denture is a fairly new development in full mouth rehabilitation. At Ashford, we are proud to be one of the first facilities in Singapore to offer this option to our valued patients. As such, we have plenty of experience in implant-supported dentures and prosthetics. 

The implant supported denture involves placing either 4 or 6 implants in your jaw then placing a full set of teeth either fixed or supported by the implants. This means you have the choice of having the teeth fixed on the implants or being removable. 

This has become extremely popular in recent times because it is suitable for such a wide demographic.

  • Want new teeth immediately or within a day or so 
  • Have ill-fitting dentures 
  • Have little or few teeth left 
  • Have many decayed, failing or missing teeth

Procedure

Is it painful?

Having done this over the course of many years, our patients do not report much discomfort or pain after the procedure. The usual response is that it is a little tender or “raw” on the day of surgery but by the day after our patients are fine, may resume activities and do not need pain relief any more

Why is the difference between this and the All on 4 procedure?

The All on 4 protocol was specifically designed for patients who have very little or thin bone in either jaw. Such levels of bone which prevents the ideal placement for 4 or 6 implants.

Hence, the All on 4 protocol relies on angulating the implants to engage as much bone as possible while avoiding:

  1. Interfering with the maxillary sinus (in the upper jaw) or
  2. Interfering with the mandibular nerve (in the lower jaw)

After a consultation with one of our experienced surgeons, we will be able to advise you on the bone levels you have and whether or not anatomical structures like the maxillary sinus or the mandibular nerve will prevent ideal placement of 4 to 6 implants.

If this is the case with you, then the All on 4 protocol of angulating the implants will be a better solution.

However, if you do have sufficient bone and anatomical structures do not present a challenge, then Implant supported hybrid dentures will be an optimal solution for you.

Why would I want a removable permanent set of teeth when I can get a fixed one?

Granted most of our patients prefer a fixed set of teeth. However, a removable one is an option. Some patients like the idea of being able to remove their own set of teeth for cleaning etc. Even the removable set in anchored or “clicked” into the 4 or 6 implants in your jaw, so it does not move at all. It is not like a conventional denture which moves a lot. 

An implant supported fixed denture cannot be removed by you, it is fixed in your mouth. 

An implant supported removal denture “clicks” unto the implants which makes it very comfortable for chewing, speaking and function. It also allows you to remove the set of teeth to clean underneath if you wish.

Why Ashford?

Over the years, Ashford dentists have undergone training and have substantial experience in Implant supported hybrid dentures.  

Ashford dentists are all trained to perform dental implants

Even our nurses have undergone specialized training to nurse for and assist for surgical procedures. 

Ashford was one of the first dental facilities to offer this procedure to patients. Since our inception, it has become one of our most popular procedures because it is an affordable method of replacing full sets of teeth in your upper/lower jaw or both.

Being one of the first facilities to offer this, we have a profound understanding of how it works and what is best suited for you. We have done hundreds of implant-supported dentures for very, very happy patients. 

Ashford has specific equipment which allows us to image the thickness and length of bone which further allows us to select the optimal implants for you. It also allows us to place our implants with surgical precision. 

Our facilities in Upper Thomson Rd, Upper Serangoon Rd and Bedok Rd are registered day surgery centers which means we can perform the implant procedure under intra venous sedation if you wish.
