If you’re missing several teeth from your top or bottom jaw, you’re probably having trouble eating normally. Removable dentures (false teeth) are a tried and trusted solution but they’re relatively high-maintenance compared to implant supported dentures.
Implant supported dentures are held in place by several titanium screw implants. The dental implants which support the denture become a permanent fixture within your jawbone and the dentures simply snap on and off.
As part of planning your procedure, Dr van Mourik will take cone beam x-ray and scan it into a computer to generate a precise 3D model. He will then use virtual surgical planning to assess your anatomy as well as the amount and quality of bone. This may involve making a customised computer-generated guide for the surgery.
