There is now a better alternative to screws. The same company that makes the Snap in Denture attatchments for removable snap in dentures now has created a screw free alternative that only can be removed by dentist. It is a cleaner and easier to manage fixed denture with no screws or screw holes makeing in ideal . It can be easily removes by hydraulics in the dental office.
Personally, I prefer the snap in denture thart is far easier to clean but the same company is now making a fixed snap.
Good news for all on four or six denture patients.
Is all on four a good idea? If one implant fails the case fails, additional implants decrease risk but increase cost and complexity.
This new F-Tx system reduces complexity.
