Implant Supported Denture

An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture 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.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation:

Full Mouth Rehabilitation, sometimes called reconstruction or rejuvenation is the individual recreation of each tooth in your mouth.

Full mouth rehabilitation is the use of many methods of dentistry to make the correct relation between gums, bones, muscles and teeth. The mouth is a complex machine and without a proper bite, chewing can become impaired, teeth can be worn and attrited, jaw and neck can become sore and even migraines can occur.

YoYou could be a candidate for full mouth rehabilitation if you answer yes to any of the following:

  • TMJ problems (Temporomandibular joint syndrome)
  • Unexplained pain or soreness around jaw joints
  • Clicking or grating sounds in the jaw joints
  • Limited jaw movements or locking jaw
  • Badly attrited (worn) or carious and broken down teeth
  • Unexplained numbness in fingers and arms
  • Unexplained congestion or stuffiness in ears
  • Vertigo.

Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them. Implants fuse to your jawbone; they provide stable support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges mounted to implants won't slip or shift in your mouth an especially important benefit when eating and speaking. This secure fit helps the dentures and bridges as well as individual crowns placed over implants feel more natural than conventional bridges or dentures.
