Implants supported removable dentures
with a full denture means more than just missing your
teeth. Problems associated with a denture extend far
beyond tooth loss, affecting comfort, ability to chew
foods, even self-image and social considerations. The
challenge is to provide stable function, without using
denture adhesive, that will fulfill your expectations
for appearance, confidence and security.
A removable full denture that is connected to either
a ball or bar attachment, which in turn is anchored
on two or more implants in the front part of the jaw.
The implants help keep the denture in place and provide
better function and comfort. Cost is usually the reason
why this solution is chosen over a fixed bridge - although
the end result can't be compared.
The treatment procedure and number of visits is largely
dependent on the specific conditions. Normally, the
treatment can take 4-6 visits. Most clients report that
they were much more comfortable following the procedure
than they had anticipated.
Step by Step
||1. The first step
is to replace missing roots by placing the titanium
implants. 2-4 implants will remain covered underneath
the gum for approximately one to six months. During
that time, osseointegration takes place.
||2. The second step of the procedure
involves uncovering the implants and attaching extensions.
Later in treatment, a bar will be affixed to these
extensions, completing the foundation on which your
removable restoration will be placed.
||3. The final step is the placement
of your restoration. With techniques that ensure
optimal size, shape, color and fit, this removable
restoration will blend with your facial characteristics,
while providing support needed for a natural appearance.
You’re free to enjoy life.
