Toronto dentist, Dr. Charles Botbol, is pleased to provide patients with a wide range of implant and aesthetic dental services. Now offering the popular implant-supported denture, Studio B Dental is yet again surpassing the high standard of service and care they offer patients. An implant-supported denture is a type of denture that is supported by and attached to implants, as opposed to the gum. This common procedure is beneficial for patients who have no teeth, but have sufficient bone to support implants. In particular, implant-supported dentures are extremely popular amongst patients missing their lower teeth, as regular dentures tend to be less stable on the lower jaw.
Dr. Botbol has advanced training in the placement and restoration of dental implants. He obtains any necessary x-rays, models and 3D cone beam CT scan images in order to place implants with great precision and maximize the available bone. Approximately 3-6 months following the initial implant surgery, during which time is given for the implants to fuse to the bone, patients return for a second appointment and impressions are taken and used to fabricate a model in order to construct the final denture.
As with a regular denture, the implant-supported denture must be removed nightly and carefully cleaned. However, the greater stability of an implant-supported denture as compared to a regular denture makes it easier to speak and eat. Because it is so secure when inserted, you don’t need to worry about your implant-supported denture getting loose or falling out of your mouth.
Implant-supported dentures are a great option for patients who are not candidates for the Teeth-in-1-Day Dental Implant solution, which involves a permanent, non-removable set of replacement teeth that are also supported by dental implants.
