The Implant-Supported Denture
If you have a denture and looking for another option, consider the implant supported denture. Dental implants have revolutionized dentistry, and whenever possible we guide our patients to the implant supported denture. Think of the implants as anchors, anchors that will keep your denture secure. This appliance is custom designed to snap down on to the implants. However, this is removeable so that you can clean it properly. It is vitally important that you keep your hydrid denture clean, or other problems will arise. Dr Bloom works with a team of specialists to assure long-term success. A periodontist places the implants, then with careful guidance, Dr Bloom designs your hybrid denture with a master lab artist so that it looks, feels and functions like your natural teeth, while preserving supporting bone.
As with all implant treatment, this is a months long process. Once the impant is placed it needs to rest for four months to allow for proper bone integration. During this period, you’ll wear your existing denture.
Dr Bloom is highly experienced in this field— leading his team, in tight collaboration with the implant surgeon and master lab tech—each specialist playing a vital role. He is passionate in changing the common held belief that dentures are uncomfortable, slip, and are unaesthetican. He has trained with the world’s leading experts in fabricating beautiful, functional, and bio-compatible implant supported dentures.
The State of the Art PEKK Implant Supported Custom Designed Denture
This denture prosthesis most closely resembles natural teeth, and is biomimetic, in that it allows for natural movement without any slippage, and as it is fabricated with individual porcelain crowns has a life-like vitality. Think of an anchor and keel that steady a boat, the dental implants function as the anchor, and the keel (a metal bar) balances the forces in the mouth, it is a revolutionary design (using 3D scanning technology) that makes this possible. As this balancing bar is made from PEKK (a revolutionary material that is stronger than human bone, yet has a certain flex), the prosthesis will function much like natural teeth, no slippage, or issues eating, chewing or speaking.
