A dental implant-based complete denture is the best solution in case of oral rehabilitation
Tooth loss and lack of teeth dramatically affect two basic abilities of an individual: one is to speak correctly, and the other is the freedom to eat and understand; you can eat whatever you want. That is especially true in the case of complete tooth loss. Since both activities are critical for humans, keeping our teeth in perfect condition is crucial. The condition of the teeth affects the well-being of older people in particular. We are usually looking for a dental replacement option that is a long-term solution for us. An example is the dental implant-based complete denture, which we recommend for the elderly. The focus is on the one-phase implant, not on the elderly!
There are several solutions for replacing missing teeth, but the perfect solution is the one-phase implant-based complete denture, especially in the case of oral rehabilitation. We can be sure that the complete denture fixed on the immediate loading implants will significantly affect the quality of our lives. There is a big difference between a traditional, uncomfortable, never really stable removable prosthesis and a complete denture attached to implants. The latter is a perfect solution both in terms of functionality and aesthetics.
Two families of dental implants have spread in Hungary. The older one is the traditional two-phase, and the newer one is the immediate loading one-phase implant. We only work with one-phase implants, and our other specialty is a one-phase implant-based complete denture, in other words, oral rehabilitation with immediate loading implants under general anesthesia.
The advantage of a dental implant over a traditional tooth replacement
The best alternative to traditional removable dentures is a denture with immediate loading implants. It is also true for the stability and functional role of the denture. This type of denture provides its user with perfect biting and chewing power. It is worth mentioning the more explicit speech without hissing and the fact that beautiful, natural-looking teeth create a pleasant impression. And, of course, it significantly improves your overall quality of life. Older people regain their long-lost smiles, which gives them a greater sense of security.
It is also important to say that immediate-loading implants are significantly different from traditional two-phase implants in terms of usability. One of the most significant advantages of the one-phase implant is that, since it can be implanted not only in the tooth bone but also in the jaw bone, it can also be a solution for those who suffer from a significant bone deficiency.
Another significant advantage of the immediate loading implant is the immediate loadability. That also means that the long-term temporary denture is already attached to the implants after implantation. And finally, one more good feature of the one-phase implant worth mentioning is that the implantation takes place in a single phase. These positive features make the one-phase implant-based complete denture unique.
How is the one-phase Implant-based complete denture made?
It begins with a careful diagnosis and case studies when the implantologist carefully examines the condition of the teeth in the mouth. The oral surgeon explains the state of the teeth to the patient in an understandable way and what solution or solutions are available in his case and also prepares a price quote. A panoramic x-ray taken on site is a big help in this.
One-phase Implant-based complete denture oral rehabilitation takes place in two steps. In the first part, the implantation of immediate loading implants and the preparation of the long-term temporary denture take place, and in the second part, the preparation of the permanent denture(s).
First time: Free, personal consultation with the implantologist performing the implantation; CT and panoramic x-rays; Detailed examination of the oral cavity, particularly concerning the condition of the bones and gums; Consultation with the anesthetist before general anesthesia; general anesthesia; Removal of teeth unsuitable for prosthetic treatment; Preparation of the required number of one-phase implants for implantation; Implantation of the necessary number of one-phase implants; Sampling for a long-term temporary denture(s); Preparation of long-term temporary dentures or dentures; Fixation of the long-term temporary denture or dentures on the implants. The dentures are fixed and not removable by the patient; The necessary control tests.
It is necessary to wait approximately six months between the first and the second visit, but we recommend having the permanent denture(s) made within a year.
Second occasion: Free personal consultation with the implantologist who performed the implant placement; Panoramic X-ray recording; Thorough examination of the oral cavity, particularly regarding the condition of the implants; Sampling for the permanent denture; Preparation of permanent porcelain dentures. The permanent denture is fixed and not removable by the patient.
As we have seen, this type of denture is one of the best solutions for middle-aged and older adults. Because bone deficiency is more common in this age group, and as we learned above, the one-phase implant is usable in such cases.
