Implant Supported Prostheses
Westwood, NJ

Diagram of implant supported dentures at Westwood Periodontics in Westwood, NJIn the evolving field of periodontics, implant-supported prosthesis (dentures or bridges) stand out as a significant advancement, offering a blend of comfort, functionality, and aesthetic appeal. As a premier periodontist, Dr. Gupta’s practice specializes in providing both removable and non-removable implant-supported dentures, tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient.

Understanding Implant-Supported Prostheses

An implant-supported prosthesis is a modern alternative to traditional dentures. Unlike conventional dentures, which rest on the gums, an implant-supported prosthesis is anchored to dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone. This offers enhanced stability, comfort, and preserves bone health.

Removable vs. Non-Removable Prostheses

Removable Implant Supported Prostheses: These are similar to traditional dentures but are secured onto implants for better stability. They can be removed for cleaning and maintenance.

Non-Removable (Fixed) Implant Supported Prostheses: Fixed prosthesis are permanently attached to implants and offer a more natural feel and function compared to removable ones. They are ideal for patients seeking a more permanent solution.

Prosthesis Supported by 2 Implants

Procedure: Involves placing two implants in the jawbone, typically in the front, where the bone is denser.

Benefits: Provides more stability than traditional dentures, reducing movement while speaking or eating.

Prosthesis Supported by 4 Implants (All-on-4)

Procedure: The All-on-4 technique involves placing four dental implants in the jawbone, which support a full arch of teeth.

Benefits: Offers good stability and is suited for patients with moderate bone loss. It allows immediate loading of the denture in most cases, providing a quick solution.

Prosthesis Supported by 6 Implants

Procedure: This method includes placing six implants in areas with the best bone quality and quantity.

Benefits: Provides the highest level of stability and support. It is the most effective option to minimize future bone loss, as it distributes the load more evenly across the jaw, preserving bone health and integrity.

Which Implant Supported Prosthesis Is Right for Me?

The choice between 2, 4, or 6 implants depends on various factors:

Jawbone Density and Volume: Adequate bone density and volume are required to support the implants. Bone grafting might be necessary for patients with significant bone loss.

Health and Lifestyle Considerations: Overall health, oral hygiene habits, and lifestyle factors are considered when determining the most suitable option.

Patient Expectations: A thorough consultation with Dr. Gupta helps in understanding patient expectations and lifestyle needs, guiding the choice of the implant-supported denture.

The All-on-4 Technique and Its Benefits

While the All-on-4 technique is an effective solution for many patients, it is essential to understand that opting for six implants can offer superior long-term benefits. More implants mean better distribution of forces during biting and chewing, which helps in preserving jawbone health and reducing the likelihood of future bone loss. This approach aligns with our commitment to not only addressing immediate dental needs but also ensuring the long-term oral health and well-being of our patients.
