An immediate denture is made and placed immediately following tooth extraction.

The lower jaw heals under the immediate denture.

Dental Implants, Plano TX | Richardson TX
It is determined that the lower complete denture is looser than the patient is comfortable with. The patient needs more grip than what was being obtained under the denture. In situations where a patient has an existing lower complete denture and wants more grip it is often possible to place 2 implants in the lower jaw. The lower denture is duplicated and holes are made in certain strategic areas. This is called a surgical guide. The implants are placed through the holes.

The implants then heal and integrate with the patient’s native bone.

Once this healing is complete, ball attachments are placed onto the implants.

There are 2 ways to complete linking the implants to the denture. If a new denture is to be made, then an impression is made transferring the implants and the lower jaw.

The denture as well as the receptors for the ball attachments are fabricated in the laboratory.
