Quality implant supported dentures near you in Ottawa
Implant Supported Dentures
A dental prosthesis compensates for the absence of a large number of teeth, or even the entire dentition. They can be removable or fixed on implants. The latter option combines the advantages of both types of replacement (dentures and implants). Your General Dentist Solutions dentist can help you restore the functional and visual qualities of your smile, whether you are missing large sections of your teeth, or all of them!
What are the different types of prosthesis on implants?
Your Ottawa dentist offers three main types of implant-supported dentures:
- All-on-four prosthesis: This prosthesis is fixed on four implants, all installed during the same surgery. It is a permanent model designed to replace the entire dentition of the upper or lower jaw.
- Bar prosthesis: This removable prosthesis is fitted with a thin metal bar that follows the natural dental arch. Clips or other types of attachments are fixed to the bar, the denture or both. This is what holds the replacement teeth to the implants.
- Locator Attachment Denture: Removable denture placed directly on the gums and supported by special implants inserted in the upper or lower jaw. It is held in place by Locator attachments, which ensure that the denture remains securely in place, but can be easily removed.
