All Teeth Missing in Lower and/or Upper Jaw
Lower Teeth Missing
1.Removable Dentures Supported by Implants / Implant Supported Removable Dentures.
Five or more implants are used in each of the lower and/or upper jaw to support a denture.
The implants are placed surgically in the jawbone. Temporary abutments are attached to the implants. The existing denture can be modified to fit on the abutments which will not disturb the implants while the healing takes place. Then a custom made bar us fitted which attaches to the implants to support a new denture. The new denture can easily snap or clip into place with the help of attachments. They can be removed easily for cleaning. The new teeth are firm which not only allows to eat foods which were not possible with conventional dentures, but also provides the stimulation for the jaw and halts further bone loss.

2.Fixed Bridge Supported by Implants / Implant Supported Fixed Prosthesis.
Instead of removable dentures, a permanent bridge may be attached
the implants. The custom bridge is directly screwed or cemented onto the implants. The screw holes are covered after the insertion.
The new teeth are firm, stimulates the bone and prevents bone loss. For regular care the dentist will remove the prosthesis when necessary for cleaning and maintenance.
Stabilizing existing Loose Denture with Implants / All Lower Teeth Missing
Two to Six Implants can be used to stabilize a lower denture. The existing loose denture is modified to fit on the implants. Implants will provide stability to existing loose denture. The denture can be taken out easily each night for cleaning. Sometimes a new denture is recommended. The higher the number of implants supporting the dentures, more stable is the denture.
