Are you looking for a cheap and reliable way to improve your smile? Consider implant supported dentures. The support of the implant allows the dental fixture to be shaped into a horseshoe. This significantly reduces the weight of the denture. This type of denture allows the patient to incorporate fruits, vegetables and other foods that they would have to avoid when using traditional dentures. The dentures are removable, making them very convenient and easy to use.
The procedure involves a series of appointments. In the first appointment, the patient and the dentist discuss the treatment plan and its involvement. This is for the patient to decide whether they will proceed with the treatment. The dentist will answer the questions and concerns of the patient. The dentist ascertains if the patient is qualified for the treatment.
The procedure starts with implant surgery, placed on the jaw bone. After the implant surgery, the existing denture becomes the interim denture. After four months, the denture is replaced with a new one.
Implant supported dentures have numerous benefits, including:
