Treatment Options

When it comes to restoring an entire arch of teeth, there exist several methods that embrace both form and function better than others. Each method has its benefits whether that be form, function or cost efficiency. Dr. Dan Thousand and Dr. Katelyn Fleming are adept at navigating this diverse landscape to provide you with the best solution for your unique needs.

Conventional Dentures

A conventional denture is a removable appliance that replaces a full-arch of teeth. It relies solely on gum tissue and suction for support and does not involve dental implants. While it can restore your smile’s appearance, it may lack the stability and chewing efficiency that comes with other implant-supported options.


An improvement over conventional dentures, an overdenture snaps onto multiple dental implants placed in the jawbone. This offers greater stability and minimizes issues like slippage. While it is an upgrade from conventional dentures, it may not provide the same level of stability as hybrid dentures.

Hybrid Dentures

Considered one of the optimal solutions for full-arch restoration, a hybrid denture offers remarkable benefits. Whether crafted from zirconia or acrylic, the key differentiator is that the prosthetic hybrid is firmly secured in place using screws and a titanium bar. This lock-and-key mechanism enhances stability, function and aesthetics, ensuring a smile that feels and looks natural.

Implant Bridges

Implant bridges are another effective option for full-arch restoration. However, this method is the most expensive of all implant options. This method involves placing multiple dental implants and spanning them with a series of fixed bridges. This approach offers excellent stability and chewing function, providing a solution that closely mimics natural teeth.
