People who wear a removable prosthesis have a feeling of insecurity because, over the years, the gums shrink and the support of the prosthesis is reduced.
This mobility of the dental prosthesis leads to a reduction in the quality of life, since eating is often reduced to the selection of products that can be easily chewed and prevents you from being at ease when eating with other diners. In addition, the mobility of the dental prosthesis also causes uneasiness when it moves and the food gets between the denture and the gum, which is a great discomfort at the wrong time. This can be solved.
Currently, the possibility of fixing and reducing the mobility of the prosthesis has no limit, since we have materials and regeneration techniques that allow the placement of dental implants. Without pain or trauma so that the mobility can be fixed or reduced to a minimum on the same day.
With dental implants, the reduction in the mobility of a partial or complete prosthesis is possible only with the minimum placement of 2 implanted units. These dental implants are currently placed under local anesthesia through a minimum incision of 3 millimeters and with the guidance of a previous radiological analysis that allows us -with a wide margin of safety- that the implantation is fast, without trauma and with an immediate recovery. This means that the patient can return to a normal life almost instantaneously. It should be noted that in many cases the old prosthesis can be used with a simple adaptation to the newly placed implants.
Therefore, ending the mobility of the dental prosthesis by means of dental implants represents a considerable advantage for the patient with respect to what happened years ago where the same intervention was performed with greater trauma and inflammation. Nowadays, the simplicity of placement also makes it possible to keep the gum and bone stable even after years, so the sooner this loss is diagnosed, the sooner it can be solved and the patient’s quality of life can be improved.
