An Implant Supported Denture is a contemporary restoration that has revolutionized the way surgeons and dentists think of replacing a full set of teeth. Standard dentures are unsecured prostheses with inherent limitations. Most often, dentures are painful, inconvenient and unstable. Such dentures can make chewing foods difficult, limiting the foods that you once enjoyed.
Modern dentistry can help with implants supported dentures. The Implant Supported Denture treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported by dental implants. Fewer implants are needed and overall treatment time and cost is reduced. An Implant Supported Denture solution also ensures greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume.
Implant Supported Dentures stay connected with bar and clip attachment methods or use a variety of abutment-based attachments (ball, magnets, and resilient stud attachments such as Locators). The most appropriate attachment system for your individual needs relates to a variety of factors that is determined early in the treatment. Typically, a temporary set of teeth can be placed on the same day of surgery. The temporary teeth allow you to lead a normal life immediately after surgery. After a short healing period, your restorative dentist will place the final bridge. Your quality of life is improved, and you can start enjoying your favorite foods again with renewed confidence.
Implants Supported Dentures in a Day is a treatment that is sometimes called Smile in a Day and it is a technique to replace missing multiple teeth or to stabilize loose dentures in just a single day. With this denture in a day treatment you can have single or multiple teeth replaced, or you can replace all your teeth using same day dental implants. This technique can also be suitable for restoring teeth on the same day as natural teeth have been extracted.
Dr. Rawal is a leading dental implant specialist in Merritt Island, FL and one of few implant dentists in the Merritt Island region to offer newest, advanced options for placing dental implants in Merritt Island including mini dental implants and latest procedures.
Our Merritt Island dental office uses only the newest and most advanced dental equipment available on the market in USA. We use top quality medical grade titanium or titanium alloy for your new teeth, the same materials used for other bone implants and for orthopedic joint replacements.
With Implants Supported Dentures in a day, you can leave our Merritt Island dental office with beautiful new teeth on the very same day. Unlike conventional dental implant treatment where you may have to wait between two and six months until it is completed, you will go home with temporary teeth fitted onto your dental implants. Your final new teeth will be made several months later once your teeth implants have had a chance to fuse with your jawbone, but this does mean that you will always be able to smile and talk with confidence.
The basic requirements for Implant Supported Dentures are exactly the same as for any dental implant treatment including Dentures in a day. Younger patients will need to wait until their jaws have finished developing, while all patients, including older patients will need to have reasonable general health.
Implant Supported Dentures in a day treatment is particularly suitable for people who have lost multiple teeth and who are interested in an affordable and long-term alternative to wearing removable dentures. There is no evidence to suggest the success of dental implant treatment is affected by age or gender.
It might be possible to use a mini dental implants. Mini implants are still made from the same high quality titanium alloy dental implants but their smaller size increases the versatility of treatment.
You may also hear these dental implants referred to as small diameter implants or narrow body implants.
Procedures that are offered by Merritt Island Implant dentist, Dr. Rawal:
>> State-Of-The-Art Diagnostic Imaging
With this surgical procedure, treatment is planned well in advance, using state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging equipment that includes a Cone Beam CT Scanner. This is a special type of scanner that produces highly detailed 3-D images of your jaws, including all your facial structures such as muscles, nerves, blood vessels as well as any existing teeth and your jawbone.
>> Plan The Implant Placement
The 3-D images produced during a CT scan enable our skilled Merritt Island Implant Specialist, Dr. Rawal to accurately plan the implant placement for your new teeth. He will decide exactly where to place each implant to give you the very best results using computer simulation to digitally position the implants in the jawbone. The implants must be positioned in such a way that they will help to stabilize each other, much like the legs of a chair; once the seat of the chair is in place it will lock all the legs together, creating a stable foundation.
>> Create A Surgical Guide
The information provided by the computer simulation is also used to create a surgical guide which is a special type of template and which is used during dentures in a day surgery to eliminate error when placing the dental implants. This type of detailed planning is essential as it is vital to miss all the important structures in your jaws while still ensuring your new, same day dental implants in Merritt Island are in exactly the right position to support new teeth that will not only look great, but which will be fully functional.
>> Attaching Your New Implant Supported Denture
Once the implants are in place, they can be restored with temporary implant crowns or a bridge. Even though you will have a set of temporary teeth, it’s still important to allow time for the same day dental implants to heal and to bond with your jawbone.
In our office on Merritt Island, FL we do not create shortcuts for Osseo integration process, and where new bone cells will grow on and around the implant post so it becomes firmly fused to your jawbone. During this healing process the new teeth dental implants must not move, so your temporary teeth will be fabricated to ensure the implants are all either locked in position in the case of implant bridges. In the case of single crowns, they will be fabricated in such a way so they do not come into contact with your opposing teeth whenever you try to bite or chew.
Once the implants are fully healed and integrated with your jawbone, you can return to our Merritt Island dental office to have your permanent new teeth made.
Alternative treatments to Implant Supported Dentures in a day include conventional or traditional dental implants, where treatment is lengthier, or mini dental implants. Both these treatments have their own advantages and disadvantages that will be discussed during your initial appointment with dental implants specialist in Metro Orlando Dr. Rawal of Merritt Island, Florida Prosthodontics.
The cost of Implant Supported Dentures is generally significantly lower than the cost for conventional dental implant treatment.
With this treatment, it’s often possible to stabilize a loose denture with relatively few dental implants. The implants are inserted into positions where the jawbone tends to be thicker and stronger, reducing the need for additional treatments such as bone grafts.
Following the surgical placement of dental implant posts, a protective cap is attached to the implant posts. This cap allows the gum tissue to heal around the implant post while maintaining necessary space to attach the restoration. For three to six months following the implant placement procedure, patients will undergo a process called osseointegration. This is the key to successful Implant Supported Dentures. Osseointegration is a fancy term for the process by which the implant post fuses with the jawbone to mimic the lost root systems of teeth, leaving patients with whole, healthy smiles.
