An implant supported denture is a type of over denture that is supported by and attached to implants. Implant supported denture is used when a person doesn’t have any teeth in mouth. Implants are placed in the bone to support the dentures. Implant supported denture can be given in either upper or lower jaw. Implant supported dentures can be removed for regular cleaning. They are much more stable than normal denture.

Implant supported denture is made in some steps.

First Step: It involves placing the implants in the bone. After surgery avoid putting direct pressure on implant area. Mean while temporary denture can be given by relieving pressure on implant area.

Second Step: After two three months when implant integrates with the bone. Healing cap is placed on the implants. After two weeks healing cap is replaced with abutment and impression is taken for denture.

Implant Supported Denture are of two types.

  • Implant supported fixed denture
  • Implant supported removable denture
In Implant supported fixed denture: We need six to eight implants in each jaw. This can be removed only by dentist not by the patient. These are just like natural teeth. The chewing power is also equal to natural teeth.
Implant supported removable denture: We need two or three implant to hold the denture so that it no longer floats causing sorenes and difficulty in chewing.
