Types of Complete Implant Dentures – Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Types of Complete Implant Prostheses


There are two types of complete denture prostheses: removable and fixed. Both can be used to replace a complete set of teeth.


  • Removable means you`ll be able to take it out of your mouth.
  • Fixed means it can only be taken out by a dentist. You and your restorative dentist can discuss which type is best for you.


Removable Prosthesis


With a removable prosthesis, the new teeth are joined to the implants by a connecting device, such as a clip and bar. This allows you to take the prosthesis out for cleaning. For support, this type often uses four to six implants per jaw.

Fixed Prosthesis


With a fixed prosthesis, the new teeth are fitted to a frame that is secured to the implants. Five or more implants are placed along the contour of the jaw. In some cases, a fixed prosthesis offers more stability for chewing.
