Choosing the Right Implants

There are many people who believe that you get what you pay for.  A $1.00 hamburger, can’t trust it. A $500.00 car, can’t drive it. A $5000.00 implant supported denture, can’t chew with it. Here at Total Freedom Dental Implants, we believe in fully discussing all of your options.  We consider ourselves lucky to be able to do so because of our experience, over 30 years with dental implants.  Inexperience limits knowledge and limits the options presented to the patient.

One point of interest in getting what you pay for is the distinction between a Two-implant or Mini implant “Over Denture” and a Fixed Implant “Hybrid Denture”.

Many dentists recommend the first option, the “Over Denture,” because it is less expensive and requires less effort to sell. Also the treatment required is far less sophisticated and therefore less demanding on the dentist.  This is very disappointing since the result is a denture that floats on the implants and does not give the stability that patients expect.  The two implant or mini implant “Over Denture” is better than a denture, but not by much.

Thankfully, there is another option. The “Hybrid Denture” is actually screwed into 4 to 6 implants, which makes it completely stable.  It cannot be removed by the patient and is the closest thing to natural teeth that you can find, which really is the whole point of using implants.

Sadly, many people are turned off by the price.  While “Over Dentures” treatment ranges between 5-10K, the “Hybrid Dentures” can be 3-4 times more expensive.  Typically, people will opt for the cheaper treatment and realize to late  that they are not happy.  When asked about why the price is so much more, our answer is simply, “Because it’s worth it.”   This is a permanent solution for your missing teeth and all that we ask is that you choose wisely.  We are dedicated to seeing people with teeth they are happy with; our office would like to offer the following: We will credit 50%, up to $5,000.00 of the fee you paid for an over denture toward a Total Freedom “Hybrid Denture”.
