Are you looking for implant-retained dentures in Leduc, Devon and the surrounding areas? Implant-retained dentures are one of the most complicated dentures that Leduc Denture Clinic crafts. If you are about to lose your teeth or have already lost your teeth and are wearing traditional dentures, implant-retained dentures are an option that you must consider. This alternative offers a solution that is as close to natural teeth as possible.
The denturists at Leduc Denture Clinic will guide you through the process of getting implant-retained dentures. The All-on-4 or All-on-X protocol is usually practised whether you have teeth removed or do not have teeth and have worn a traditional denture. Using the All-on-4 or All-on-X procedure enables a patient to have their teeth removed, a minimum of 4 implants (or 6, or 8) placed and a temporary or provisional fixed denture secured to the implants, all in one day.
The patient will have to wear the provisional denture for 3-6 months. After this period, the treatment continues with the removal of the temporary or partial dentures and fixing of the final denture, which proves to be more stable and natural. There is a titanium bar in the final implant-retained denture encased within the denture and secured to the implants.
Presently, suppose you have a removable implant-supported denture (usually using locator implants) and at least four implants. In that case, you can use existing implants as the basis for creating an implant-retained denture. Once an implant denture is locked or screwed into place, the patient can’t remove it. It can be removed once you visit our clinic. This is the perfect option for you if you are someone who does not like the idea of putting dentures in and out of your mouth.
The base of implant-retained dentures is a titanium bar that is encased inside the denture. Titanium offers a good base and excellent stability.
The ability to chew harder (bite force) is greater than traditional dentures because screws protect an implant-retained denture via a titanium metal link.
Bone loss or resorption of the jaw bone when implants are inserted is less than anyone who wears the traditional dentures.
In contrast to traditional dentures, implant-retained dentures leave less denture content in the mouth.
Implant-retained dentures allow an individual to go through life in the most normal and natural way possible.
Implant-retained dentures do not get dislodged while eating as screws attach them to the jaw bone.
