Unfortunately, some patients might not have had a choice when receiving upper dentures as it was recommended to provide enough support and retention, especially if you’re a patient who consequently suffering from bone depletion.
✅ If the bone is good on both sides of the mouth, sometimes covering the palate can be avoided.
❌ Leaving the palate uncovered and using fixative for support will only work in certain missing teeth scenarios.
The above options are rarely advised or undertaken as they only work for a limited percentage of patients. So, what can we do instead?
We can suggest modern, advanced (and sometimes complex) procedures to boost your comfort and return your taste sensation.
At our practice, we can avoid the need to cover the upper palate with innovative missing teeth procedures like:
These treatments are particularly advisable for patients who find it difficult to adjust to upper dentures or have a sensitive gag reflex.
What are your options without using dental implants?
Sadly, cobalt-chrome dentures are your only tooth replacement option without the use of dental implants.
Are you avoiding dental implants because you’ve been told no in the past? Or you don’t have enough bone to withstand them? Today’s dentistry is different. We have solutions for patients lacking bone and can use certain methods to place implants without it.
Denture wearers usually have no upper teeth, meaning Cobalt-chrome dentures are impossible. Without dental implants, patients can only rely on suction and dental adhesives to keep their dentures in place.
Enter implant-retained dentures, which is a more affordable procedure to replace a full arch of missing teeth using removable dentures that snap onto two or three implants per jaw.
You’re in luck if you haven’t heard about the revolutionary, All-on-4 procedure. All-on-4 uses four implants to secure a hybrid denture for a lifetime.
