How can Implants Help me if I need full upper or lower dentures ?

 


In patients who have all teeth missing or extracted over time in either the upper or lower jaw or both, the only options are the dentures. Traditional Dentures use the gum ridge to stabilize them. However, gums shrink or change shape over time which requires relining of the dentures or wearing ill fitting dentures which can be frustrating.

Dental Implants can be very effectively used in these cases. Implants provide very stable support for the dentures making them fit snugly on the gum line eliminating typical denture problems.



Case 3: Full Upper and Lower Implants

 


Dr. Munira will determine what needs to be done and will prepare both herself and the patient for the coming treatment procedure. Since several implants are required precise positioning and site preparation will be thoroughly understood. An impression of the gingival ridge may be taken to make a template with guides to place the implants in the exact locations to ensure the best support.

What is the process for a full mouth teeth replacement with Implants ?

The first step is installing dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots. In the case shown to the right, five implants are used. Temporary teeth are attached that enable you to eat and function like normal while waiting for the permanent bridge to be installed.

The implants need to integrate with the jawbone before the permanent bridge is attached. This is normally done 1-2 months after the implant installation. The time will vary, depending on the teeth affected and the esthetical demands. Denture supported by implants
The final bridge is securely installed on top of the implants. With a full jaw replacement like this, it normally takes 2-3 visits to have the bridge completely attached. Completed fixed denture on implants
