Dental implants can now be used to support mobile dentures.
Those who wear a mobile denture usually suffer from objective difficulties in chewing and speaking, as well as from pain and suffering due to their loose or poor application. Most patients belonging to this category, and have remained without their own natural teeth for many years have suffered a loss (absorption) of the jawbone, which makes it impossible for the denture to function smoothly. Problems such as intense denture mobility and pain in various sensitive parts of the patient’s mouth are very common. These are especially true for the lower jaw.
It is now considered necessary to have at least two dental implants placed in the jaw to support the lower denture and four implants to support the upper denture. Such treatments are called dentures on implants (overlapped dentures). The implants are placed in the jaw by a simple procedure and then special ligaments are placed between implants and denture so that the latter is firmly attached to the ligaments, minimizing its mobility, both during the speech and during the chewing of the patient. The result is the patient’s absolute sense of security, which can work smoothly and remove the denture whenever he / she wishes (and of course to clean it).
