Types of implant-supported dentures available
Implant-supported dentures can be fixed or removable. When 2 or 4 dental implants are placed in the jawbone, a complete removable lower denture, supported by the gums, but largely stabilized by the dental implants, can be made. This is a comfortable, popular solution.
With a higher number of dental implants, between 4 and 8, it is usually possible to make a denture that is completely fixed to the implants. To ensure its stability, a metal bar is incorporated into the prosthesis. This method is very secure and comfortable for patients. Our professional Montreal dentists will be happy to advise you on which treatment is best for you.
How is an implant-supported denture made ?
To start, the initial consultation is very important. This preliminary visit is an opportunity to evaluate the clinical context, the patient’s health and the available bone volume. A 3D X-ray is usually taken to determine the number, diameter and position of the dental implants.
When the situation permits, dental implant surgery is carefully planned and carried out. Afterwards, there is a healing period that lasts for a few weeks. Then our dentists make a series of impressions of the mouth. A metal bar or several attachments are then placed on the implants. Lastly, after fitting and cosmetic approval, the new teeth are placed in the mouth.
Adjustments and follow-up visits are to be expected. For these procedures to be successful, it is essential that there is an adequate amount of healthy bone in the jaw.
Maintenance advice and follow-up after implant supported denture placement
Removable implant dentures must be taken out and cleaned after each meal. Unless otherwise instructed, it is preferable not to wear them to sleep. The bar or attachments that have been fixed to the dental implants must also be well maintained.
Strict and meticulous hygiene must also be observed in patients with fixed implant dentures. It is important to thoroughly brush the denture and the connecting parts of the dental implants.

Implant-supported dentures offer many advantages to patients, but they require a good amount of prior planning. The success of this procedure depends on several factors, including the quality and accuracy of the impressions taken.
Therefore, it’s often advisable to consult a multidisciplinary team of qualified dentists. You may choose to meet with a general dentist and a dentist who specializes in prosthodontics, periodontics or maxillofacial surgery. In general, your family dentist is the best person to advise you.
