Removable Prosthesis on Implant
General information about removable prosthesis with attachments on implants
Following many years of analysis, research and development, this technique is now one of the first choice of treatment plan for patients with removable dentures, since they really solve the problems of edentulousness. The dental implant provides support to the partial denture which provides solid chewing. It allows you to remove the metal hooks and gives the feeling of having your natural teeth.
The big difference is its attachment system which helps prevent movement of the prosthesis, preventing losing the prosthesis while laughing, talking, sneezing or mainly while eating. To be able to place a clip-on prosthesis, a minimum of 2 implants must be placed. It is obvious that with 3 or 4 implants placed, there will be better stability.
The removable prosthesis on the implants can be removed by the patient and put back by the latter, using fasteners which are fixed to the implants placed in the mouth. The prosthesis is removable but once attached to the implants, it no longer moves. We find the same retention and stability of fixed prostheses on implants. The advantage is that dental maintenance and hygiene is easier. The downside is that by removing and reinserting the fasteners, they have to be changed over time.
There are different solutions to stabilize a prosthesis on the implant:
Clip-on prosthesis with a press stud : After 3 months of healing, your dentist places the special abutments on the implants and takes the impression to have the prostheses manufactured and fixes the prosthesis with the press stud. It is smaller than a bar and often used with just two implants placed in the front of the jaw, for patients who do not have too much force on this area. It is a work with compromise because the stability of the prosthesis on two press studs is not as good as a bar placed on four implants.
The price of a clip-on prosthesis with press-stud on 2 implants (implants excluded) is 850 £ / 950 € at smileydent.com
The price of a clip-on prosthesis with press-stud on 4 implants (implants excluded) is 1000 £ / 1150 € at smileydent.com
Clip-on prosthesis with locator : It is similar to the press stud system but all the time the attachments are larger and thanks to the four implants placed, it offers better stability. It costs less and more discreet than a bar.
The Bar Retention Prosthesis : It is a prosthetic element used as part of the complete rehabilitation of a completely edentulous jaw. It is not visible when it is clipped onto the implants. 3 months after the placement of 2 to 4 implants, to make the bar, your dentist takes a so-called precision impression with a specific material and uses 3shape dental CAD software to provide complete and detailed information on the patient’s anatomy . Then from these data, the base of the prosthesis will be milled in a titanium block with the CAD-CAM system. This innovative technique allows us to align and solidify the implants between them, thus the prosthesis becomes more stable and solid than the prostheses clipped with press stud. By recalling his qualities,
smileydent.com proposes to study if you can benefit from this stable, comfortable, natural, easy to maintain and economical dental solution.
