The Implant-Supported Denture Process

In this video, Dr. Robert Harvey details the steps involved in fabricating an implant-supported denture, ensuring a comfortable fit and natural look.

The process of fabricating an implant-supported denture involves several detailed steps, ensuring a custom fit and natural appearance:

1. No Charge Consultation: We offer a complimentary consultation at the beginning of this process. This no-obligation consultation is designed to help you understand exactly what the procedure entails and what results to expect. It’s a risk-free opportunity for you to learn about the potential benefits of implant-supported dentures and to make an informed decision about whether this solution is right for you.

2. Impression Taking: After the dental implants are placed, the first step is to take precise impressions of your mouth. These impressions form the basis for all subsequent steps, ensuring that everything fits perfectly over the implants.

3. Wax Rim: Using the impressions, a wax rim is created. This wax rim is essentially a base that mimics your bite. You will bite into this wax rim with your existing denture or natural teeth, which allows us to accurately record how your jaws come together. This step is crucial for setting up your bite alignment correctly.

4. Teeth Set in Wax: Next, the teeth are set in wax within this framework. This setup is essentially a trial version of your denture. You get the opportunity to see how the teeth will look—checking their alignment, spacing, and color. This step is vital for visualizing the final outcome and making necessary adjustments.

5. Critique and Approval: At this stage, we encourage you to thoroughly review the appearance of the teeth. We check if they are centered, if they are straight, how they look when you smile, and whether they show the right amount of teeth. It’s also the time when we invite family members to provide their feedback, ensuring that you are completely satisfied with how your new teeth look and feel.

6. Final Processing: Once we have approval from you and confirm that the teeth mesh well together, the denture is processed. During your next visit, this finalized denture is fitted and snapped over the implants.

This entire process is geared towards creating a denture that not only fits well and functions properly but also enhances your smile and overall facial aesthetics, ultimately aiming to transform your life positively.
