An implant supported denture is an overdenture that is attached to titanium implants fixed in the jawbone. The implants anchored in the gum eventually fuse with the jawbone and act as a stabilized post. Our implant specialists will recommend implant-supported dentures if you have edentulous jaw and have enough intact jawbone to fix the implants. These dentures are more stable and comfortable when compared to the removable dentures.
We offer both permanent and removable implant-supported dentures. The implant-supported dentures bring confidence to you as they are not loosely fitting and will not be dislodged while eating or daily use.
How is it done?
A normal denture is fitted on the jaw ridge, however, it dislodges during eating or talking and we definitely have seen tons of funny videos about it and we are sure you have too. When such things happen to us, they definitely shake our confidence and make us feel embarrassed. However, when the dentures are fitted by using implants, they are far more stable and you do not have to worry about them falling off.
Before the implant-supported denture treatment starts, our dental surgeon will completely examine your jaws and review your medical and dental history. X-rays/CT scan of your jaws are required to determine the area where to fix the implants without affecting the sinuses and nerves. Usually, our dentist places four implants in the jaw, two in the front and two in the back. These implants are connected using a metal bar, which helps with the stability of the implants.
After successfully placing the implants in your jaw, the next step is attaching the custom made dentures to the implants. The patients can select the type of denture either permanent or removable.
After your implant-supported denture treatment, you will be given proper instructions about caring and maintenance of your new dentures by our dental surgeon. You need to remove your denture at night and also for the cleaning purposes. We highly recommend regular check-ups for the maintenance of the dentures and implants and for the tightening of the dentures, if necessary.
