+What are dental implants?
Dental implants are metal posts that are surgically screwed into jaw bone to support either one or many artificial teeth.
+Why types of dental implants treatments are available?
Saberton Denture & Implant (previously known as The Denture Centre Ontario) currently focuses on dental implants directed towards individuals who need improved denture care. Dentures secured on implants are generally classed into two categories: screw-retained implants, and removable dentures on implants. Single tooth implants with crowns currently aren’t within our scope of practice.
+What are dentures with screw-retained dental implants?
This type of dental implant treatment involves a much more fixed
denture prosthetic. The denture is screwed in to the implants by the
dentist and is not removable by anyone other than the dentist.
+What are removable dentures on dental implants?
Because of the high cost and high maintenance required with screw retained dental implants, Saberton Denture & Implant's most popular implant treatment is for removable dentures on dental implants.
What is the difference between removable dental implants and secrew-retained dental implants?
The denture in this treatment snaps on the dental implant and is removable by the patient, similarly to a regular denture, but much more secure. The advantage of this dental implant treatment is that it is far easier to clean the denture, whereby the denture is removed from the mouth and brushed in the sink or soaked in a cleansing solution. The oral cavity can easily be brushed once the denture is removed, greatly reducing any chance of decay or disease around the implants.
+What are mini dental implants?
It’s debatable whether mini implants can even be referred to as dental implants. This treatment is seen as a lower cost alternative to the traditional dental implant whereby mini implants, as the name suggests, are much smaller in size.
Are mini implants reliable?
Mini implants generally fail at a rate of up to 30%. Because of this high failure rate, Saberton Denture & Implant generally recommends the time-tested traditional dental implant as a solution. While mini implants have their place in helping dentures stay in place, we find that regular dental implants are our preferred choice, simply because of how well they work. And when it comes to surgical procedures, Saberton Denture & Implant feels that it’s always better to work with treatment plans that offer the best outcome.
+How much are dental implants?
Fixed, or screw-retained dental implants usually cost up to $30,000 per jaw. Saberton Denture & Implant primarily works with removable dentures on dental implants because of our ability to provide this treatment at a much more affordable rate. There are generally two fees related to removable dentures on dental implants:
