Quality of Dentures Like Never Before

Patient with complex situation that required removal of her remaining upper teeth

This female patient presented with a very difficult, complex situation that required removal of her remaining upper teeth.

X-ray showing bone loss, failing bridges, dental decay and unrestored dental implants

Thorough pre-operative diagnosis includes several X-rays. In this image, the patient has an abundance of dental problems to be addressed, including bone loss, failing bridge work, dental decay, and previous-placed / unrestored dental implants that need to be addressed.

Mouth with upper teeth removed and additional implants placed

The upper teeth were removed, and additional implants were placed at the same appointment. This not only improves prognosis, but saves the patient valuable time and money.
This photo was taken 3 months after the tooth removal / implant placement appointment, and the patient is now ready to have her new set of teeth made.

X-Ray of the patient after placing dental implants

A periodic X-Ray is taken to monitor the health of the patients implants and ensure continued quality. These implants have a great prognosis.

The final denture before placement

The final set of teeth is much smaller than the typical denture – This set does not cover the patient’s palate, allowing not only a reduction of bulk but significantly improved ability to taste food and liquid.

The palate-less implant-supported denture snapped into place

The palate-less, implant-supported denture snaps into its retentive components, allowing a rock-solid fit. This patient will most likely never need to use denture adhesive.
