Treatment Options

Achieving a comprehensive restoration of an entire dental arch involves navigating through various methods, each offering a unique blend of form, function and cost-effectiveness. Dr. Douglas Heller and Dr. Eric Beckman, experts in this diverse landscape, are dedicated to tailoring solutions that best suit individual needs.

Conventional Dentures

These are a traditional removable appliance, restore a full-arch of teeth by relying on gum tissue and suction. While enhancing appearance, they may lack the stability and chewing efficiency provided by implant-supported alternatives.


This appliance represents an advancement, securing onto multiple dental implants for heightened stability and reduced slippage compared to conventional dentures. Despite this improvement, they may not match the stability achieved by hybrid dentures.

Hybrid Dentures

Considered an optimal solution for full-arch restoration, hybrid dentures, crafted from materials like zirconia or acrylic, feature a unique lock-and-key mechanism. Firmly secured with screws and a titanium bar, they excel in providing enhanced stability, function and aesthetics, delivering a natural-looking smile.

Dental Implant Bridges

These appliances, albeit the most expensive option, offer a high-end solution involving the placement of multiple dental implants and fixed bridges. This method closely mimics natural teeth, providing excellent stability and chewing function.

Selecting the ideal restoration method hinges on individual needs, budget considerations and expectations.
