COSMETIC DENTURES FOR MEN

IMPLANT OVERDENTURES 

Bredent Implant Overdentures are semi-precision custon made implant supported cosmetic dentures. With proper construction these dentures allow results similar to fixed implant restorations with the benefit of good hygiene and easier inspection of the implants.

ECTODERMAL DYSPLASIA

Blake is an amazing young man with Ectodermal Dysplasia. Over the course of the last ten years I have had the honor of treating Blake. We started with dentures and partial dentures and recently made a lower fixed / hybrid implant bridge. In the upper we are waiting on his growth to reach the point when implants can be placed for a permanent solution.

Ectodermal dysplasia is not a single disorder, but a group of syndromes all deriving from abnormalities of the ectodermal structures. More than 150 different syndromes have been identified. Ectodermal dysplasias are described as “heritable conditions in which there are abnormalities of two or more ectodermal structures such as the hairteethnailssweat glands, cranial-facial structure, digits and other parts of the body.”

Abnormalities in the development of tooth buds frequently result in congenitally missing teeth or in the growth of teeth that are peg-shaped or pointed. The enamel may also be defective. Cosmetic dental treatment is almost always necessary and children may need dentures as early as two years of age. Multiple denture replacements are often needed as the child grows, and dental implants may be an option in adolescence. In other cases, teeth can be crowned. Orthodontic treatment also may be necessary. Because dental treatment is complex, a multi-disciplinary approach (a prosthodontist , orthodontist and oral-surgeon team of dentists) is best.

Blake and his parent were kind enough to honor me in the national organization – the NFED.

IMMEDIATE DIEN FOLLOWED BY HYBRID DENTURE

In my opinion, The ultimate edentulous arch rehabilitation is the screw down fixed detachable implant bridge also known as the hybrid bridge. The term hybrid bridge is used because when a person is missing all their teeth for a long time the jaw resorbs. The bridge replaces the missing teeth but also the lost tissues. It is a hybrid of fixed prosthetics and denture techniques. This is the first implant prosthesis used widely worldwide, and over twenty five years later it is now a gold standard for longevity and efficacy.

FULL MOUTH REHABILITATION

Full Mouth Rehabilitation is a complex and time consuming treatment for the correction of complex occlusal and functional problems. Esthetic correction is also a part of the treatment, but seldom the only goal.
