Dentures Supported by Dental Implants

Case 1

Description of Treatment: This 80-year old gentleman had been wearing dentures for over 50 years. His main challenge was that his lower denture was loose and this made it difficult for him to eat and chew comfortably.

After his clinical assessment and the appropriate x rays a treatment plan was developed. His treatment included the placement of 4 dental implants in the lower jaw. These implants were then left to heal and join with the bone in his lower jaw. During this period he continued to wear his existing dentures.

After the implants had healed successfully small screws called ‘Locators’ were attached to the dental implants. New upper and lower jaw dentures were made. In the lower denture 4 attachments were placed that attached to the implants. This gave him a new stable and retentive denture and he is now able to chew and eat comfortably.
