Dental Implant + Denture, Why Not?
Losing teeth either because the teeth have been extracted or due to accidents and several other reasons can bother a person. In addition to the disturbed masticatory function, several other disorders can occur, such as facial asymmetry, jaw joint disorders, the relationship between the upper and lower teeth that are not harmonious, to the arrangement of teeth around the area where the teeth are missing. Several prosthetic treatments can be performed, such as the removable partial dentures, the fixed dentures with crown-bridge, to dental implant treatment. In practice, dental implant treatment is carried out by applying several disciplines of dentistry because it involves dental and oral surgery, dental supporting tissues (periodontal tissue), and prosthetics, so that dental implants can only be performed by oral surgeons, periodontists, prosthodontists, and dental implants certified dentists.
Unfortunately, there are still many people who are misunderstood about dental implants, where most people think that dental implants are intended only to replace one missing tooth. In fact, dental implants not only treat the loss of a single tooth, they also replace several missing teeth, even in cases where the patient has lost all of their teeth. Well, how come? Let's take a look at this article to find out the role of dental implants in replacing missing teeth.
Dental implants are the procedure for implanting artificial tooth roots into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. Dental Implant will be fused in the jawbone, and will replace the function of tooth root. Dental Implants can stabilize both removable and fixed dentures. This means that dental implants in certain cases do not only stand alone, but also can be combined with dentures as a solution for cases of missing more than one tooth. Implant-supported fixed dentures are in the form of single dental implant restorations, fixed cemented prosthesis, fixed-detachable prosthesis, hybrid bridge fixed-detachable prosthesis.
Implant-supported removable dentures or better known as overdentures are a type of denture that is widely used in implant support systems. Based on the support, overdentures are divided into two types, namely those supported by soft tissue and implants or teeth, and those supported by purely implants. An overdenture is a complete or partial removable denture that covers and rests on one or more natural teeth, tooth roots and or dental implants. This overdenture denture has its own advantages because it is known to be able to inhibit the continuous resorption process, so that maximum retention and stabilization is obtained. With these advantages, implant-supported removable dentures will make users feel more comfortable when talking or chewing food. In addition, there are also types of dental implant-supported removable dentures that use magnets to strengthen their retention. Where the magnet is on the anatomical surface of the denture base.
