A number of dental implant types are available to address specific missing teeth conditions. The ramus frame implant is a one-piece rail made of titanium, which is placed just above the gum tissue. This type of implant is often used at the back portions of the mouth where the wisdom teeth are situated, and can also be used in the area near the chin. At the Dental Implant Group in London, a ramus frame implant is used when a patient does not have enough bone quality in the lower jawbone to support the placement of conventional dental implants or a dental prosthetic device.
Ramus frame implants are used to solve the numerous problems associated with loose dentures. If you are suffering from loose denture problems, ramus frame implants can eliminate the discomfort brought about by sore sports on the gums, difficulty in chewing food properly, challenges in speaking clearly, or if you generally have a hard time wearing dentures because of the discomfort and pain.
Once the ramus frame implant is placed on top of the gums, and implant has gone through a healing period, a thin metal bar will be visible. This metal bar is where the dentures will be connected to, and will serve as the dentures’ secure base to eliminate problems of uncontrolled movement.
