Mini Dental Implants to Stabilize a Full Upper Denture without palate coverage

Case by Dr. Paghdiwala – Pearl Dental Arts @ Newtown, PA

This case is of a person who started off with an ill-fitting upper denture that was stabilized with mini dental implants and without palate coverage. He got the denture immediately after all the teeth were taken out, and after healing, the denture fit very poorly. He has to use a lot of denture adhesive like polygrip to get it to stay in at all.

Complete upper dentures normally have plastic covering the entire palate, to provide good suction to the denture. Since the mini implants provide the retention of the denture, an upper denture without palate coverage is possible. The extra plastic it can be trimmed off. The patients can feel their palate, taste their food better, talk better and have less plastic in their mouth.

The upper denture fits securely in the mouth. This patient used to wear thick layers of denture glue to help hold the denture in. Since he got the mini implants, he has never had to use any.

Once again, note that the patient’s palate is not covered with any plastic as the mini implants are providing the stability to the denture. Prior to the mini dental implants, the upper denture palate extended all the way to the back of the mouth.
