Denture Supported Implants

Millions of people are missing most or all of their teeth. 

A common complaint of people who wear complete dentures is that they are hard to keep in place, resulting in problems eating and speaking, and also causing soreness as the teeth shift and rub on the gums.

For these people, a denture replacement solution that eliminates the need for denture adhesives might mean a new level comfort and ease in their life. Using dental implants for support, thereby removes the need for the use of messy and unreliable denture adhesives. 

The use of dental implants can return the look and function that your current dentures and denture adhesives probably aren’t providing.

If your dentures are uncomfortable, and denture adhesive is bothersome, our removable implant denture solution at Sunnyvale Dental Care Office may be the right fit for you.

A removable implant denture is another form of a dental implant supported dentures, but is removable (hence the name) for cleaning, similar to your current dentures.

Unlike a patient who is missing one tooth and will need a single tooth implant to replace it, a full denture wearer will need a minimum of two to four implants to support their denture.

Installing Full Arch Implants with Overdentures

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available.

Step 1: Before the procedure

Examination and preparation for the planned treatment procedure.

Step 2: Installing the implants

The first step is installing dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots. In this case, two implants are used. Four implants may be placed in cases for added overdenture retention. Temporary dentures may be worn that enable you to eat and function like normal while waiting for the permanent overdenture to be installed.

Step 3: Attaching ball/bar and making overdentures

A ball or bar is then attached on top of the implants and the overdentures installed over. The ball or bar acts as a clip that enables the overdentures to snap securely in place.

Step 4: End result

The first step is installing dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots. In this case, two implants are used. Four implants may be placed in cases for added overdenture retention. Temporary dentures may be worn that enable you to eat and function like normal while waiting for the permanent overdenture to be installed.
