Implant-retained dentures are an innovative treatment that allows the permanent placement of dentures on dental implants. This gives an excellent alternative to removable dentures. The implant-retained dentures can be placed in the lower jaw, where traditional dentures do give adequate support and strength.
Although traditional dentures tend to be stable in the upper jaw, implant-retained dentures are more stable in the upper and lower jaw.
The following are a few benefits of implant-retained dentures.
Implant-retained dentures are suitable for people without teeth on one or both arches and have sufficient jawbone to support dental implants. During your consultation with our dentist at Dental Implants Clinic Turkey, you will have an assessment to determine if you are an ideal candidate for dentures.
These dentures have an acrylic base that looks like natural gum, with acrylic or porcelain teeth attached to the base. Two types of implant-retained dentures are available. They include:
The dentist will examine your oral health and discuss the treatment during the initial consultation. If you are a good candidate for implant-retained dentures, you will have an appointment to insert the implants in your jaw.
The surgery requires local anaesthesia, but you may get a sedative to help you relax. After the implant placement, your dentist will fit a set of temporary teeth. Following the healing period, usually 4 – 6 months, you will have an appointment to fit the permanent denture.
You need to remove the dentures and carefully clean them every day. Ensure you also remove the dentures before sleeping, like regular dentures. Some people prefer permanent bridgework and crown, which do not need removal for cleaning.
You will discuss available teeth restoration options with the dentist during your consultation.
