Full denture on one-phase implant - How the treatment is done?

Full denture on one-phase implant – How the treatment is done?

Advantages of the full denture on one-phase immediate loading implant

Full denture on a one-phase implant, also known as implant-based oral rehabilitation, is presently the promising solution to extensive tooth loss, and it’s the only restorative procedure that yields natural-looking outcomes. Beyond the natural look, it is essential to note that these dentures are very similar to the original teeth in terms of bite strength and chewing quality. This article will tell you what oral rehabilitation with one-phase implants means, the benefits, how to care for it, and what to look out for.

An immediate loading implant is used for this type of denture; one of the essential benefits is no need for bone replacement before implantation. Unlike two-phase implants, the implant is designed, shaped, and sized to fit deeper and more securely into the jawbone. It provides a perfectly stable foundation for full denture on a one-phase implant without bone grafting. It may be unnecessary to mention that using this method does not require denture adhesive at all

What is oral rehabilitation?
We speak of oral rehabilitation when no single tooth is suitable for prosthetic care in the oral cavity. Missing teeth are replaceable in the traditional way and with a dental implant. The latter can be two-phase or one-phase implant-based oral rehabilitation. Our specialty is the latter treatment, specifically, full denture on a one-phase implant under anesthesia.

One-phase implant-based denture is the gold standard for tooth replacement, an investment that can last a lifetime. Compared to a conventional prosthesis, it is far better and eliminates the problem associated with a traditional denture. Let’s mention a few of these. Denture gluing is an unpleasant operation; moreover, it doesn’t provide complete stability. That causes the denture to move regularly during chewing. It rubs the gums and reduces biting and chewing power. Insufficient chewing of food can cause digestive problems beyond our ability to enjoy food.

Since the Swiss titanium implant is anchored into the jawbone tissue, they provide a perfectly stable foundation for complete dentures. They glue the denture on with a unique adhesive used only by the implantologist, so it is a fixed denture because the patient cannot remove it! Give a perfectly stable foundation for fixed dentures glued to them.

You can forget forever about slipping out, unstable dentures which make your life miserable. We would say that those, as mentioned earlier, complete fixed denture gives the utmost comfort, stability, and satisfaction. That means you can eat & chew with greater confidence and speak without a slur.

Some of the reasons you should have a full denture on a one-phase implant
(a) Once installed, the fixed denture stays in its place. They don’t have to be removed for nightly soaks or cleaning. Instead, you can brush, floss, and treat them like your natural teeth.

(b) Unlike a conventional denture, complete fixed dentures on immediate loading implants won’t cause painful sores, and they are less prone to developing an unpleasant mouth odor.

(c) Fixed Dentures on immediate loading implants adheres osseointegration* that promotes a very stable arrangement and prevents slipping or shifting of the denture.

(d) The process goes easy on your jawbone. Individuals with conventional dentures slowly experience gum loss. That is because traditional denture rests on your gums and minimize their strength. However, complete fixed dentures on immediate-loading implants prevent bone loss.

(e) In terms of chewing quality and strength, a full denture on a one-phase implant gives you the perfect feeling of using your original teeth. At the same time, it provides ideal articulation and speech quality. Last but not least, the dentures fixed on the immediate loading implants look brilliant and give a perfect look.

One-phase implant-based oral rehabilitation under general anesthesia
Oral rehabilitation with a one-phase implant occurs in two steps. In the first part, the implantation of immediate loading implants and the preparation of the long-term temporary denture take place, and in the second part, the preparation of the permanent denture(s).

First time
– Free, personal consultation with the implantologist performing the implantation.
– CT and panoramic x-rays.
– Detailed examination of the oral cavity, particularly concerning the condition of the bones and gums.
– Consultation with the anesthetist before general anesthesia.
– General anesthesia.
– Removal of teeth unsuitable for prosthetic treatment.
– Preparation of the required number of one-phase implants for implantation.
– Implantation of the required number of one-phase implants.
– Sampling for long-term temporary denture(s).
– Preparation of long-term temporary dentures.
– Fixation of the long-term temporary denture or dentures on the implants. The dentures are fixed and not removable by the patient.
– The necessary control tests

It is necessary to wait approximately six months between the first and the second visit, but we recommend to have made the permanent denture(s) within a year.

Second occasion
– Free personal consultation with the implantologist who performed the implant placement.
– Panoramic X-ray recording.
– Thorough examination of the oral cavity, particularly regarding the condition of the implants.
– Sampling for the permanent denture.
– Preparation of permanent porcelain dentures. The permanent denture is fixed and not removable by the patient, similar to the long-term temporary denture.
– The necessary control tests.

Finally, let’s summarize the benefits of the full denture on a one-phase implant over traditional dentures. Most importantly, it almost looks and functions like it had its original teeth. It is also a lifelong solution for those with a significant bone deficiency. The denture fixed by the implantologist cannot be removed by the patient.

*Osseointegration: From the Latin word osseous, “bony,” and integrate “to make whole” is the direct structural and functional connection between living bone and the surface of a load-bearing artificial implant.
