- Snap-retained: A tissue-supported and implant-retained removable option. Each implant has a snap-type metal abutment attachment that securely retains the denture in place.
- Hybrid denture: A fully implant-retained and fixed option. A custom milled bar supporting esthetic acrylic teeth or a milled zirconia bridge screw onto six to eight implants for a fully fixed solution.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE IMPLANT DENTURE PROCESS
- Consultation: Dr. Patel has advanced training in the placement of implants and will meet with you to review your medical and dental history, take x-rays and photos, and create impressions of your teeth and gums.
- Temporary dentures: If you are not already wearing a denture, a temporary set of dentures will be fabricated for you until final implant dentures are complete. The temporary denture aids in the creation of the final implant denture.
- Surgery: Implants are placed into the bone under the gums in the planned sites. Dr.Patel waits approximately three to four months for the lower jaw or five to six months for the upper jaw before scheduling the next step, in order to make sure the implants have properly integrated to the jawbone.
- Implant uncovering: The implants are exposed and healing abutments are placed on each implant. Two weeks later, the healing abutments are removed and an impression is captured of the entire jaw for fabrication of the final implant denture.
- Denture delivery: Depending on the design of the final denture either the final abutments or a bar will be placed. The denture may then be delivered and adjusted for final fit.
