Is another option for patient who accept removable prosthesis. Lesser number of implants can support this prosthesis offering it adequate retention and stability.
Generally patients who are wearing complete removable dentures have insecurity for their dentures especially with lower denture. As it can be loosen, some times come out white coughing, sneezing , public speaking etc. implant supported dentures solves this problem. Patients will have perfect natural security for retention and stability of dentures.
Immediate implants with immediate loading
Implants placed surgically and loaded immediately with provisional prosthesis. Definitive prosthesis is given after the period of integration.
Implants with delayed healing
Implants placed surgically in first stage and definitive prosthesis is given after 2 to 3 months of integration period.
Generally the most ideal situation for implant placement where an implant is placed at the site of extraction after com;pete soft tissue and bone healing, between 8 to 22 weeks.
Implants placed after few years of extraction.
Long term extraction site usually show bone resorption. In order to regain the lost bone width and height surgical modification of bone by various techniques is indicated.
1. Bone Expansion- in case of loss of bone width bone expansion technique is used to reagain the original form.
2. Sinus Augmentation- in the posterior segment of upper jaw there is maxillary sinus. Usually after extraction of long term the bone height resorbs and maxillary sinus pneumatize leaving inadeaquate bone to place implants. In such cases sinus augmentation done with bone grafting to regain the bone height.
