Confusing info

Posted by: Baylor77  (5 years ago)

I've been doing some research as I suspect I'm going to want to go with some type on implants dentures and not just regular one. But there are so many names out there and a number sound like they do the same thing.

I understand implant supported dentures are removable, that one was easy. You get acrylic teeth and you pop them in and out to clean them. But then there are the hybridge dental implants that sound like you get a perm. denture installed with 4-8 implants. There is the all on four, which again is perm. and they use 4 implants. Then I hear of the prettau bridge, that uses 4 implants. This one has zirconia teeth. Aren't they all the same thing, just different upgrades or am I wrong? Are these bridges or dentures?

Appreciate someone helping a confused noobie.
