Las dentaduras retenidas por implantes

Replacing missing teeth with implant retained dentures

Cuando se pierde un diente, por lo general es mejor para su salud oral para que se lo cambien. La falta de dientes pueden afectar su “mordedura” así como su capacidad para hablar y masticar. Su pérdida puede aumentar la carga sobre los dientes restantes y puede causar dolores de cabeza y dolor muscular en la mandíbula. Por supuesto, perder un diente también puede afectar su apariencia. The following information reviews replacing missing teeth with an implant retained denture.

Although many patients have no problem wearing an upper denture, some people find it difficult to wear and eat with lower dentures. Several implant-supported replacement options are available if you are missing all of your lower teeth.

What if I’m missing all of my lower teeth?

Una opción es tener dos, cuatro, o seis implantes colocados en la mandíbula inferior y una dentadura hecho que encaja en estos implantes. Esta opción se estabiliza su dentadura inferior al masticar. Sin embargo, there will still be movement of your lower denture, and sore spots will occur if any food particles (especially seeds) are caught under it. As with all removable replacement teeth, aún necesitará citas periódicas para el ajuste de la dentadura.

Another option involves placing four to six implants, depending on your jaw size or shape, into your lower jaw. After healing is complete, una barra de soporte a medida conecta los implantes. Su dentadura utilizará clips de retención internos especiales para encajar firmemente sobre la barra de soporte. Esto se llama un “sobredentadura.” Esta opción es mucho más estable que la primera opción y permite muy poco movimiento de la dentadura. Su dentadura aún es removible para facilitar su limpieza y mantenimiento..

A third option involves placing five or more implants in your jaw and attaching a permanent denture. Your denture is held in place by screws or clasps that secure it to the support posts or bar. It doesn’t touch the gum tissue, which allows you to clean under the denture without removing it. Esta prótesis reemplazará todos sus dientes inferiores que faltan y sólo será eliminado en las visitas de mantenimiento. Although cleaning under your denture without removing it is more time consuming and requires more dexterity, many patients who want a permanent denture prefer this option.

What If I’m Missing All Of My Upper Teeth?

A similar range of treatment options is also available for your upper jaw. Sin embargo, because the bone is not as hard as that in the lower jaw, people often need more implants to support their new replacement teeth. Dependiendo del número de implantes necesarios, es posible que no tenga que cubrir el techo de la boca con una dentadura completa. This option allows you to fully taste your food and gives you a better sense of its temperature. Su dentadura también se sentirá más natural. You will still have a removable denture, which makes cleaning the support bar and denture much easier.
