The idea of having a dental surgery pleases nobody !
Usually under local anesthesia, dental implants, done by the dentist, usually causes little pain. Thanks to implantology, your dentures will become almost as strong as natural teeth! While it is less common, it is also possible to have a prosthetic implant to the maxilla; learn from the denturist, the expert in removable dentures.The approximate healing time for the lower jaw is two to three months for the maxilla, six months before moving on to the second stage.
The patient can continue to wear his dentures which have been modified by the denturist. the most popular choice with implants on denture wearers are; 4 implants with fasteners Locator or with retention bar.
The first step in the fabrication of prostheses is the molding of the gum . Depending on the number of implants and the type of prosthesis to make, we will take two different molds that will faithfully produce replicas of your gums and the exact position of the implants. Once this is complete, we proceed to the fabrication of models to be used to save all the settings required for mounting teeth. These measurements determine the length of the teeth, the support that we give to the lips, the position of the jaws relative to the other, as well as other important technical parameters for precision work that will lead to a successful job.Then comes the assembly of teeth on test models. This step will make future prostheses on temporary bases acrylic and wax, we can then check in the mouth the accuracy of any previously saved measures. During this test phase, we also check the aesthetics of the future restoration. These verifications will lead either to the prosthetics finishing step or a second test session. It is very important at this point, that you communicate any changes you would make to your future dentures . Dentures should be tried as many times as necessary to achieve the objective. It is only with your approval we will proceed with the finish of your dentures. At the end of the treatment, all the work will be checked on both sides, the surgeon and the denturist, who always work in close cooperation.
