Implant supported dentures – modern, comfortable and ideal solution for patients with unstable complete dentures.
Implant supported dentures use a dental implant to securely support the denture. They are the most comfortable solution and rebirth for patients who are wearing traditional complete dentures for a long time and are tired from all the disscomfort that that kind of denture carries. The biggest advantage of implant supported dentures compared to traditional dentures is that these can not fall out during conversations or eating, because they are snapped to implants with especially designed buttons or locators. This type of denture requires two implants in the bottom jaw, and four in the upper jaw. Implant supported dentures are easy to take out and clean at home, almost the same way you do with the traditional complete dentures.
„Palateless dentures“ comfort you need!
Palateless dentures are placed on the upper jaw on four implants, which provides an option to be made almost completely without the palate part. This type of dentures are thinner and more comfortable than traditional dentures, considering that they are stabilized by implants and not only vacuum, like the case is with traditional dentures.
Procedure for making implant supported dentures
The making process of implant supported dentures is preceded by placing implants. The procedure of placement is the same as for any kind of prosthetics work. More about implants you can read here.
After placing implants, in most cases, it’s necessary to wait three months before snaping the denture to the implants, so they have enough time to integrate with the bone.
While the patient is waiting for the process of osseointegration (integration with the bone) to be over, during these three months they can use traditional complete dentures as a substitute. Implant supported dentures are made in the same way as traditional ones, the only difference is that at the end in the finished denture snaps are in built. Those snaps securely support the denture.
