Single Implant/ Implant Bridge
A conventional denture or a simple denture sits on the patient’s gums. As time goes on the gums shrink or recede thus making the denture move every time patient eats, talks, or even opens their mouth.
Also, as the fit changes, they need to be relined/ rebased regularly. For patients who are suffering from these resorbed ridges implants, assisted dentures are an ideal solution. Implants help in improving fit, function, and though the initial cost is slightly higher the overall advantage is significantly more over the long term.
Patients who never had any dentures and are now going to have their teeth extracted due to any reason are also a good candidate for implant-assisted dentures as having implants helps them to get used to a removable prosthesis easily.
Implant-assisted dentures in the upper jaw can be designed so that the roof of the mouth is not covered thus reducing the bulk considerably. This is particularly helpful for patients who have gagging issues or want palate exposed to better taste certain foods.
Our team is trained to fabricate such dentures with different kinds of attachments per the need of the patient. With the help of the latest technology, we can plan the correct number, angulation of implants needed and then fabricate a precise fitting denture to fit all of the patient’s needs.
