WEBVTT 00:00:05.214 --> 00:00:09.442 Dentures are made for patients who have lost their teeth, 00:00:09.908 --> 00:00:12.458 and they're custom-fitted to their mouth. 00:00:12.517 --> 00:00:17.650 The implants add a foundation to support that denture, 00:00:17.808 --> 00:00:22.842 and the denture will click into the implant, and it's like a snap. 00:00:24.650 --> 00:00:27.720 It's stable while they're talking, chewing, and functioning. 00:00:28.080 --> 00:00:29.908 Implants mostly benefit 00:00:30.158 --> 00:00:33.708 patients who wear lower dentures because otherwise they float around. 00:00:34.150 --> 00:00:35.707 You don't have the suction 00:00:35.708 --> 00:00:37.675 that you would have on an upper denture. 00:00:37.850 --> 00:00:42.642 Here we have four implants that have been placed previously. 00:00:42.658 --> 00:00:45.558 They heal for about 4-5 months. 00:00:45.892 --> 00:00:49.358 Then you can notice that we've embedded 00:00:49.900 --> 00:00:55.125 these attachments that are nylon into the denture, 00:00:55.126 --> 00:00:59.142 and that just snaps into place. 00:01:01.117 --> 00:01:01.633 Like so. 00:01:01.642 --> 00:01:03.983 This denture is a little bit on the loose side. 00:01:05.200 --> 00:01:10.083 These nylon attachments can be changed, and I have one here. 00:01:10.325 --> 00:01:15.108 We have different strengths of inserts that make it easier. 00:01:15.292 --> 00:01:17.800 There are also dentures where we can actually screw 00:01:17.801 --> 00:01:19.242 the denture in permanently, 00:01:19.483 --> 00:01:22.158 and it doesn't come out until you come to the dentist. 00:01:22.758 --> 00:01:28.983 We then have to unscrew the attachments and take the denture out to clean. 00:01:29.175 --> 00:01:31.033 The other nice thing about this system 00:01:31.034 --> 00:01:38.174 is the nylon inserts will wear out between 6-12 months, 00:01:38.175 --> 00:01:42.350 and they can be easily changed and fitted with new nylon inserts so that, 00:01:42.892 --> 00:01:44.817 again, the denture is nice and snug. 00:01:45.360 --> 00:01:49.992 I like this system because the patient can take it out 00:01:50.480 --> 00:01:52.517 and they can clean around the implants, 00:01:52.518 --> 00:01:56.033 which is very important because infections can develop 00:01:56.034 --> 00:01:58.400 around the implants if they're not kept clean.
