Understanding the Timeline for Your Implant-Supported Dentures

dca-blog_325-dentures-false-teeth

Any dental procedure can be intimidating, but knowing what will happen can make things easier. If you’re having implant-supported dentures placed, you can expect a multi-step process that spans several months. An implant-supported denture attaches directly to implants surgically placed in your jaw. This type of fixture eliminates many of the problems encountered by standard-denture wearers, but implementing it is a complex process. The following steps explain what will take place.

The Consultation

At your initial exam, you will see a prosthodontist or a dentist in Ocoee experienced in implant placement. Impressions and x-rays are taken so that models can be created. Some dentists also order a CT scan to locate your sinus cavities and nerves and determine how much bone is available. Over the next few visits, temporary affordable quality dentures will be made for you.

The First Surgery: Implant Placement

During your first surgery, implants will be placed into your jawbone. After making a small incision, your dentist will drill a hole in the exposed bone, place an implant, and close the incision with stitches. The process is repeated for each implant. You’ll be required to wait three to six months before you can have the second surgery, which allows the implants to fuse to your jawbone.

The Second Surgery: Exposing the Implant Heads

The second surgery exposes the tops of your implants. Once your dentist opens your gum tissue and reveals each implant’s top, he or she will place a healing collar or cap on it to help it heal correctly. You’ll need to wear the collar for 10 to 14 days. Next, healing caps are replaced with regular abutments. Your dentist will make another impression to help create your denture framework and artificial teeth.

Securing Your New Implant-Supported Dentures

In the final step, a supporting metal bar is fastened over the abutments, and you’ll be able to try on your new smile. If everything fits correctly, your new teeth are permanently secured in place, and bar or ball attachments are added to attach the frame to your implants. Your dentist will show you how to care for your new dentures, and schedule follow-up appointments to check your implant-supported dentures and oral health.
