Denture Fixed on Implants vs. Conventional Removable Prosthesis

What to choose, would denture fixed on implants good for me?

There are several ways to replace missing teeth, and which one the dentist recommends based on the circumstances. From a professional point of view, there are two main methods: conventional prosthesis, which can be glue by the patient and dentures fixed on implants. There are also two types of implant-based dentures, fixed on two-phase and one-phase implants. This article will discuss one of the most up-to-date solutions, explaining why denture fixed on implants are what you should choose. One-phase implants, also known as immediate loading implants, are the ideal solution today, especially in the case of complete tooth deficiency.

Almost half of the over-50s are forced to wear dentures in the form of dental bridges. Many people are ashamed and perhaps consider it terrible to lose their teeth, although a well-made, stable and aesthetic denture cannot be distinguished one’s own teeth. Therefore, we do not really have to worry that everyone is watching at our teeth while we are talking and smiling. It is also important to note that denture does not decay, does not cause root inflammation, does not cause pain, and is usually much less problematic than our own teeth.

Common problems with conventional dentures
Do you have a removable denture for a long time that is unstable, and you need to use more and more denture adhesives to keep it stay stable? Denture wearers are aware of the inconvenience of a removable denture. Even if the denture is relatively stable when finished, it quickly loosens during use and constantly loses its stability. Very often, at the most unexpected moments of life, it can put us in an awkward situation, disturbing chewing, taste perception, and even falling out. The denture covering the entire palate, even if it stable, is extremely uncomfortable to use.

The most common problems caused by loose dentures

  • Gums rubbed, swollen, with painful inflammation,
  • Impaired taste perception,
  • Digestive complaints due to insufficiently chewed food
  • Regular trapped food remains,
  • It is impossible to consume harder, crunchy foods,
  • Changed voice training and speech,
  • Lack of self-confidence in private and business life,
  • Constant feeling of shame, anxiety.
  • None of the problems listed exist for denture fixed on one-phase implants.

There is a solution!
There is one method: denture fixed on implants that can be made on the lower, upper, or both jaws within a few days, and is a complete denture that is both functionally and aesthetically perfect. Of course, this is only possible with .one-phase, immediate loading implants. It should be noted that this method is also a solution for those who suffer from a significant bone deficiency. The complete denture fixed on implants is completed within 3-5 days.

Advantages of denture fixed on implants over removable dentures

  • The denture is fixed on implants drilled into the jaw bone so that it cannot move.
  • Perfect for biting and chewing, whatever food is consumed, the denture remains firmly in place.
  • Dentures fixed on immediate loading implants have almost the same chewing efficiency as their own teeth, so digestion problems can be avoided due to poorly chewed food.
  • It does not cause any problems in sound formation and articulation, so the speech and the smile become natural.
  • Immediately loadable implants hold dentures that do not move, do not damage the mouth and gums mucosa, and are completely stable.

The process of denture fixed on immediate loading implants
During a personal consultation, a panoramic X-ray is taken to determine exactly where and how many implants are needed. We then prepare a treatment plan and discuss the expected costs.

On the day of surgery, after local anesthesia, teeth unsuitable for prosthetic care are removed and the implants are inserted. The first time ends with an impression taking.

The next time, a metal frame test and a sample of the denture will be performed. This is when the color, shape, and shape of the denture are discussed, and then the impression is immediately taken to our dental laboratory where colleagues make the denture. In the next 1-2 days, further tests, adjustments, and checks will be carried out. On the 4th or 5th day the denture fixed on implants will be handed over.

Who can have dentures fixed on immediate loading implants?
Anyone whose own teeth are already unsuitable for chewing, biting, or have lost them. In our experience, 99% of patients can have fixed dentures fixed on one-phase implants.

As we have seen, in the case of missing teeth, denture fixed on implants offers the most. Provides perfect biting and chewing ability, restoring original sound functions and aesthetic face shape. It totally gives the impression of a natural denture, both in appearance and function.
