Implant-supported dental prostheses

Implant-supported dentures represent one of the most significant advances in the field of denturology, offering a stabilising solution for complete dentures, replacing missing teeth and restoring patients' chewing function, smile aesthetics and self-confidence. Unlike removable dentures, which rest on the gums or remaining teeth, implant-supported dentures are fixed in place using dental implants stabilised by a surgeon.


Dental implants are titanium screws designed to replace the natural roots of missing teeth. They are inserted into the jawbone during minor surgery, where they fuse with the bone over time in a process called osseointegration. Once the implants are firmly anchored in the bone, they serve as a stable and secure support to stabilise the denture in place.


There are several types of implant-supported dentures, each adapted to the patient's specific needs, depending on their requirements, expectations and financial reality:


Fixed implant-supported dentures : Fixed implant-supported dentures are screwed to dental implants using special screws or fixing systems. These dentures offer superior stability and optimal chewing function, allowing patients to eat and speak with confidence. Fixed dentures can be used to replace a single tooth, several teeth or all the teeth in a jaw.


Removable implant-supported dentures: Removable implant-supported dentures are designed to be attached and removed by the patient for easy maintenance and cleaning. These dentures are supported by dental implants, but can be removed at any time for cleaning or to sleep. Removable implant-supported dentures offer greater stability and comfort than conventional dentures, while offering the convenience of a removable denture.


Hybrid implant-supported dentures: Hybrid implant-supported dentures combine the advantages of fixed and removable dentures by offering a stable, permanent solution that can be removed by the dentist if necessary. These dentures are usually fixed in place with screws or clasps, but can be removed for cleaning or adjustments.


Implant-supported dentures offer many advantages for patients with several missing teeth:


Stability and comfort: Implant-supported dentures offer greater stability and comfort than conventional dentures, allowing patients to eat, speak and smile with confidence.


Preservation of the jawbone: By replacing the roots of natural teeth, dental implants help preserve the jawbone and prevent bone resorption, maintaining a strong, healthy facial structure.


Improved smile aesthetics: Implant-supported dentures are designed to be aesthetically pleasing, with artificial teeth that closely resemble natural teeth, giving patients a confident, natural smile.


Durability and longevity: Implant-supported dentures are designed to last for many years with proper care, providing a durable and effective dental replacement solution.


In conclusion, implant-supported dentures represent a major advance in the field of prosthetic dentistry, offering a durable and effective solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring patients' chewing function, smile aesthetics and self-confidence.
