A surgical procedure is required to place the implants in the jaw bone, The implants are left buried under the gum for up to 3 months, in which time the patient can still use their dentures satisfactorily.
A second surgery is required to place locators on to the implants. This is a very straight forwards process. The new teeth are then made to fit the locators and when they are in they feel like fixed teeth.
Studies have shown that the patient has far superior biting forces and control using this system. It truly does change their lives. The benefit is that the teeth can still be removed to maintain optimum hygiene and maintenance, which in turn offers a high level of predicable outcome.
