Implants and a Denture used to Replace a Partial Denture and Loose Remaining Teeth
Allen did not want to wear a loose lower partial denture any longer and wanted a bottom denture that was more secure.
One of the reasons that the existing partial denture had become loose was because the adjacent teeth were becoming loose as well.
To remove all the loose and infected adjacent teeth, place 2 implants with small locators that helped to ‘click’ in a lower full denture. This would give the denture complete stability and retention during chewing.
Lower dentures a known for moving around in the mouth. The tongue, cheeks and lips all contribute to de-stabilising a lower denture; only 2 implants in the lower jaw can stop all this from happening.
