Dentures, Over Denture and Hybrid Dentures
All removable appliances are different and specific to each patient. Our technicians begin each case using state-of-the-art products and the most advanced technology. Their experience and artistic abilities enable them to create the most realistic and premium fitting appliance for your patient.
We offer different grades of dentures from Immediate, Surgical and Economy to Hybrid and Over dentures with implants. There are several steps that we schedule with the doctor to ensure the perfect fit and type of denture is made.
We offer you step by step instructions on some of our denture products. Please feel free to review these steps by visiting our Forms page. If you have any questions regarding the steps we recommend, please feel free to call and review them with Daniel M.Carlson, CDT.
All-on-4® Implant Denture System
The All-on-4® treatment concept provides edentulous and soon-to-be edentulous patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on four implants on the day of surgery. This quickly leads to improved patient satisfaction – with regards to function, esthetics, sense, speech, and self-esteem. Stability even in minimum bone volume- By tilting the two posterior implants, longer implants can be used. This increases bone-to-implant contact and avoids vertical bone augmentation. In addition, the tilted implants can be anchored in better quality anterior bone, reduce cantilevers and help avoid important anatomical structures. Daniel M. Carlson, CDT can be booked to help facilitate the All-on-4 process.
Overdenture and Hybrid Denture Systems
Over dentures are very complex and we have been mastering them using the newest techniques. We work closely with the dentist to get the most aesthetic look and fit while insuring the strongest fit and function. We design and cast all the implant bars used in Hybrid and Over dentures.
We use CAD technology to scan models and impressions to then create a wide range of dental tools and products including implant bars. This is leading technology and an exciting chapter in implant design! We are able to scan an impression with the CAD scanner and design and build the prefect fitting implant bar.
We have created some amazing results with our implant bars, over dentures and hybrid dentures. For more information please visit our Implant Systems page.
Massad Denture Technique
"The Massad Denture Technique is a physical and physiological approach to fabricating complete dentures, utilizing the Myostatic Outline and Neutral Zone technique or compound rim for recording muscle movement.
The Centric Relation Record is used as an intra-oral device for determining Vertical and Centric Relationships. External impressions taken at try-in to determine facial and lingual borders and flanges. As needed, a Massad-type Modified Bar may be used for stability and strength."

SR Ivocap System
We use the SR Ivocap Injection System as we feel this produces the most accurate and best fitting methacrylate-based dentures. Not all injection denture systems are the same. The SR Ivocap Injection system provides consistent heat and pressure injection throughout the entire 5 step process. Pressure is then applied during polymerization. As the base material flows throughout the mold, the shrinkage of the material is optimally compensated. This then produces stronger, denser acrylic appliances, providing a superior fit and patient comfort. It also reduces the possibility of "open bites" during processing, thus saving the dentist and the patient chair side adjustment time.
