Also in cases where complete dental rehabilitation is required due to advanced tooth wear or to correct mild or moderate dental malocclusions, teeth are carved and zirconia or porcelain crowns are cemented.
In other cases, fixed prostheses are placed on unitary or multiple implants, including complete rehabilitation of the jaw bones with implants. Whenever the conditions of the patient and the jawbone allow it, it is the most indicated option.
In these cases, with non-invasive implantology techniques, the surgery becomes a very light and painless procedure.
Nowadays we carry out immediate implant techniques or teeth in a single day, in addition to guided implant surgery systems.
There are resin ones and others with a metallic base, called skeletal ones that are much more comfortable and have hardly any volume for their retention.
All partial removable prostheses are usually stabilized to prevent mobility by means of different devices (metal hooks, cosmetic hooks, invisible attachments …).
An annual review of removable prostheses is necessary since over time, the bone atrophies and their clearance increases (“they become too large”) and it is necessary to compensate for this loss to ensure a correct fit and that the hooks do not damage the teeth where they adapt . Chafing and sores due to misalignment of the prostheses are also avoided.
Finally, removable dentures with implants can also be anchored by means of a system of balls used as brackets that prevent the mobility of the denture, especially the lower one, which is usually the most problematic. They are called overdentures and can be done on 2 or 4 implants depending on the degree of stability desired, allowing the necessary comfort for the edentulous patient who wears full dentures, which provides quality of life for chewing and the confidence that their teeth will not ‘move’.
