Quality implant dentures in Montreal

There are several ways to replace missing teeth. Among the choices available, there are implant-supported dentures.

This choice is also intended for patients who desire enhanced chewing ability for their food.

Types of implant dentures

Implant dentures can be fixed or removable. When 2 or 4 implants are placed in the mandible, a complete removable lower denture, supported by the gums but largely stabilized by the dental implants, can usually be made. This solution is comfortable and very popular with patients.

With a higher number of dental implants, between 4 and 8, it is usually possible to make a prosthesis that is completely fixed to the implants. A metal bar is then incorporated into the prosthesis. This solution is very stable and pleasantly comfortable for patients. Your dentist is a professional who will be happy to advise you.

How is an implant denture developed?

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 dental implants.

When the situation permits, dental implant surgery is planned and performed. Afterwards, there will be a healing period of a few weeks. Then we make a series of impressions of the mouth. A bar or attachments are placed on the implants. After fitting and cosmetic approval, the new teeth are finally placed in the mouth.

Adjustments and follow-up visits are generally to be expected. For these procedures to be successful, it is essential that the jaws have an adequate amount of healthy bone.

Maintenance advice and postoperative follow-up

Removable implant dentures must be removed 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 teeth of the prosthesis and the connecting parts of the dental implants.

For implant dentures that meet your needs

Fixed and removable implant dentures offer many advantages, but they require good planning. The success of the procedure depends on several factors, including the quality and accuracy of the impressions.

It is sometimes advisable to work with a multidisciplinary team. In such cases, a general dentist and a dentist who specializes in prosthodontics, periodontics or maxillofacial surgery may be consulted. In all cases, your family dentist is the best person to advise you.
