Dental Implant Patient Guide

Dental implants are fixtures designed to replace a root of a tooth.  They are fabricated out of either titanium or zirconium.  Titanium ones are made out of an alloy that is surface coated with hydroxyapetite or bone like material.  Zirconium on the other hand are made out of a very strong ceramic material that is highly biocompatible. Sizes and lengths of these fixtures placed vary upon the amount of bone that is present. They are placed within the jawbone with great precision to allow for ideal restoration. They exhibit a highly biocompatible surface, which enables bone to completely fill in around the fixture and provide long-term stability.  When fully integrated with surrounding bone, they are designed to withstand standard biting forces. The titanium or ceramic fixture provides support for the final restoration, which can be a dental crown, bridge or denture.  After restoration it is not possible to distinguish between an implant supported and tooth supported restoration.

How to Improve Denture Stability

Due to lack of support from the underlying bone the denture moves around during talking, or chewing.  Many patients have to use denture adhesives to keep the plates in place. There are other options for obtaining stability with a removable prosthesis.  Dental implants, can provide much needed stability for the upper and lower plate.  Usually two regular size or four mini fixtures are ideal for increased retention and stability.
