Home Replacing all teeth Removable prosthesis - ball

A thorough examination

The jaw is X-rayed to check the condition of the bone tissue and to determine the placement of the dental implant. An impression is made of the jaw and existing teeth, forming an important platform for the treatment planning.

Inserting the dental implant

In a one-step procedure, the dental implants are placed and then temporary abutments are attached.
In a two-step procedure, the dental implants are inserted and then covered by the gum, and left to heal. The abutments are attached at a later date.
In both cases, a temporary prosthesis is put in place.

Healing period

A temporary prosthesis is put in place, followed by a maximum healing period of three months for the lower jaw, and six months for the upper jaw.
Innovative technologies and a growth-activating surface provide for secure and quick healing of the implant. Over time it becomes completely integrated with the bone tissue.

Attaching the abutment

In a one-step treatment, the temporary abutments are replaced by permanent ones.
The second part of a two-step procedure involves making a minor incision to open the gum and put the ball abutments in place.
When the abutments are in place, a new impression is made. 

Fitting and re-examination

When the overdenture is ready, your dentist simply attaches it to the dental implants. This is usually followed by a few follow-up visits to check functionality and esthetics. In fact, it feels and functions like natural teeth.

Care and maintenance

As with natural teeth, proper care and maintenance of your dental implant-supported teeth plays a significant role in preserving an optimal outcome over time.

Make sure to:

  • Make routine follow-up visits
  • Care for your implant-supported teeth by brushing and flossing as you would with your natural teeth
  • Carefully follow the instructions provided by your dental professional
