I will give you some things to consider to keep you out of trouble and to aid your denture laboratory by providing the records that will produce the best outcome.

Whether to treat dental implants like their natural tooth counterparts and restore them with cemented restorations or treat them as a different entity and restore them with screw-retained crowns requires careful consideration. We all have our ideas of what works best clinically in our own hands and what is the best solution for our patients.

If you ask, most patients will tell you they hate their lower denture. Lower dentures flip and flop. They are notoriously unstable and are difficult to wear. In many cases, the only option to improve the patient’s overall well-being and happiness is to stabilize the denture with implants.

How many times has this happened: a patient presents with an existing implant overdenture that does not fit. Although the denture snaps into place correctly, the patient complains the denture feels loose or that a lot of food gets under the denture. The patient may also complain that they can’t chew well.
Cast metal partial dentures have been considered the standard of care for removable tooth replacement for a very long time. From the dentist’s perspective, they are functional and serve to fill the space left by the patient’s missing teeth.
Nothing stays the same. The mouth changes over time. But patients fail to realize this fact when it comes to removable dental appliances. How many times have you heard a patient proclaim that the metal partial “you made” them is loose or it doesn’t fit the way it originally did when “you made” nine years ago?
Over the last five decades, there has been tremendous progress in the treatment and prevention of dental disease as well as new ways to restore or replace teeth that are lost to disease. But one thing hasn’t really changed. And that is immediate dentures.
