Parklands Dental Practice, 14a Thomasville, Caerphilly CF83 2RE
The dentist will insert strategically placed implants into your jaw made of titanium alloy, which is safe and compatible with human bone. The dentist attaches connecting pieces to the implants called abutments. The abutments attach to the dentures.
The process requires several steps, including assessing your suitability for implants, developing a customised treatment plan, scheduling implant surgery, allowing time for the implant sites to heal, and finally fitting your bespoke set of dentures.
You dentist will advise you as to the approximate length of the process after the oral health assessment. But remember, each patient heals differently, so no 2 patients experience will be exactly the same.
Because your denture plate is attached to implants embedded in your jawbone, remove all detachable appliances and clean around the attachments, artificial teeth and clean your gums. Remove them at night and soak them in cleaning and disinfecting denture solution.
