With as little as 4 implants on the top and 2 -4 implants on the bottom jaw, the discomfort and instability of ill fitting dentures can be put to an end indefinitely. In some cases, the entire implant procedure and fitting of new dentures can be performed in a single session. This largely depends on the patient's jaw anatomy and bite.
Implant Supported Fixed Full Denture in Beverly Hills
The installation of 6 -10 implants in each arch will allow us to turn uncomfortable, ill-fitting full dentures into flawless fixed bridges that mimic natural teeth. Since this would be a fixed prosthesis, the patient doesn't have to worry about anything becoming loose or falling out when eating or exercising. As with any other fixed bridge, the patient must maintain good oral hygiene involving routine brushing and flossing. Also, it is recommended that the patient keep up with routine periodontal maintenance appointments in 3 month intervals. This is to help ensure the longevity and periodontal health of these dental implants.
