FULL MOUTH RESTORATION WITH IMMEDIATE LOADING IMPLANTS
Before defining what precisely full mouth restoration means, let’s say a few words about its predecessor. When we hear the phrase denture, many think of a never-fit, regularly moving, providing a weak bite force prosthesis. These were the characteristics of the 20th-century dentures, some of which were more successful, some of which did less well, causing a great annoyance to its users.
Many, and perhaps even today, do not use their traditional dentures because they have more problems than benefits. Unlike a complete denture on implants, the fundamental problem with conventional removable dentures is that the pressure exerted by the denture is not on the tooth bone but on an otherwise not loadable gum. The resulting number one concern is that even when it perfectly fits the gum, it cannot be loaded to the same force as the original tooth root, anchored in the jawbone.
IMPLANT-BASED ORAL REHABILITATION PROCESS
– Personal consultation,
– Detailed oral examination,
– Panoramic X-ray,
– General anesthesia,
– Removal of teeth unfit for dental treatment,
– Required number of dental implants,
– Dental implants implantation,
– Preparation of long-term temporary denture(s),
– Carry out the necessary control tests.
– Personal consultation,
– Oral examination
– Panoramic X-ray,
– Preparation of the permanent porcelain denture(s),
– Control test.
The second problem is that even glued dentures can move after a few hours and even non-glued ones. The direct consequence of this is that the continuous movements of the prosthesis rub, and break the gums, which become inflamed and, as a result, become sensitive. The resulting pain makes it almost impossible for a normal bite to chew.
Some types of gingivitis also occur in the case of complete dentures fixed on the implant. Still, the extent and consequences are not nearly as severe as conventional dentures. Due to gingival regression and atrophy, the denture must either be “lined” or periodically rebuilt with a new prosthesis that fits better with the altered gums, allowing the denture to function again more efficiently.
We only mentioned the most significant negatives regarding the traditional, removable by patient dentures since this is not our topic. The fundamental and most crucial difference between the two dentures is that while the traditional one rests on the gums, they glue the denture to the implants! It is a vast difference, as all of the above and not mentioned problems with the standard removable prosthesis are solved in one fell swoop.
An implant with a complete denture is one of the best dental restoration solutions, similar to the original, natural teeth. This method is superior to conventional removable dentures, with the sole disadvantage of being quite expensive. This statement holds for both usability and aesthetics.
The other complete denture fixation on the implant is with one-phase, immediate loading implants. That is also an implantation method that has been in existence for quite a few decades and has started to become popular in the last few years. This solution is significantly different from traditional biphasic in many respects. On the one hand, the name implies a single phase, and on the other hand, the implanted implants consist of a single piece and can be varied. There is only one obstacle to faster spread: its price is quite expensive.
Even more important is the ability to single-phase implants to be immediately loaded! There is no need for a 3-6 month ossification period for biphasic patients, and implants are loadable immediately after implantation. Thanks to this feature, a complete oral rehabilitation, complete lower and upper denture, can be done in 3-5 days. You can read more about it here.
