Dental IMPLANTS FOR COMPLETELY EDENTULOUS PATIENTS
IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURES
- An implant-supported denture is a type of over denture that is supported by and attached to implants.
- A regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported by implants.
- An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants.
- An implant-supported denture has special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants.
IMPLANT SUPPORTED FIXED PROSTHESIS
- Treatment of the edentulous patient with fixed prosthesis using multiple implants in both dental arches has many benefits compared to a conventional removable denture, including increased patient satisfaction improved speech, esthetics, function and self-esteem.
- With a continuing increase in the use of implants, a significant percentage of edentulous population is benefiting from the advantages of fixed implant restorations
