Implant Supported Overdentures
Samantha, a 60 yrs old lady from Katy, Tx lost her upper teeth and was using ill-fitting dentures for 5 years which were worn out sooner than expected. Her remaining upper & lower teeth were removed due to decay and poor hygiene. She was looking for a permanent replacement solution for missing teeth. Another challenge was preserving the remainig bone, she choose implant supported overdentures. Here are procedure pics.
On the under-surface of lower denture nylon caps(blue colored) were attached to the denture which is secured in a metal housing(silver thin edge).Together with locator attachment it forms a snap fastener or press stud to hold the denture in place while talking, eating, swallowing.
