The implant prosthesis is indicated for patients who need to replace all the teeth in one or both dental arches. In this technique, it is not necessary to install a post for each tooth that will be replaced, minimizing treatment costs and its invasiveness.
The procedure involves positioning some implants in strategic areas of the dental arch. They will serve as the basis for a complete denture, so all teeth are replaced at once.
The great advantage of this procedure is the stability and security it provides. As the denture is fixed on implants that are attached to the bone, it does not move in the mouth the way a removable denture does. Therefore, the patient has more confidence to eat, smile and talk. There are two types of implant prostheses that have a small variation. They are the overdenture prosthesis and the protocol prosthesis.
