Denture Videos - Treatment Demonstrations
- Palateless Upper Denture Modification
More and more denture patients, both new denture wearers and current denture patients are getting implant supported upper dentures that enables the removal of the bulky plastic that covers the roof of the mouth. Gag problems disappear and quality of life issues virtually skyrocket. Most patients can resume eating favorite foods they couldn't eat with dentures. Apples, nuts, carrots and even steaks are easy to eat. See how a palateless denture is created while the patient is in the office. Click here to watch a visual outline of the procedure.
- Atlas One Hour Implants for Current Lower Denture
Many patients who have problems with poor fitting, loose dentures are unable to have traditional implant placements due to jawbone characteristcs, cost or the inability to withstand traditional flap surgery. The Atlas implant system enables patients to reuse their existing denture with a treatment protocol and procedure that is typically completed in an hour.

- Advanced Oral Cancer Screening
The VELscope Laser is becoming a popular technology (becoming approved by more and more insurance companies) that enables dentists, surgeons and periodontists to literally visualize oral lesions that may be a cancerous risk. Patients with open sores or lesions that don't seem to heal quickly can be evaluated within a matter of just minutes. Safe, efficient and extremely accurate, more and more dentists are providing this new diagnostic service. Click here to watch a live demonstration of an oral cancer screening. Video footage provided by Dr. James Sanderson of Birmingham, AL.
- Bone Leveling: The Foundation for Best Denture Fit
Dentures can be designed, fabricated and adjusted to fit, feel, look like and function as well as normal teeth. One of the most overlooked procedures in routine treatments for new denture wearers is proper preparation of the jawbone or bony ridge of the upper and lower jaw. See how this extra attention to detail makes sense for having a great denture product.

- Extractions and Socket Grafting
Live Surgery involving mutliple extractions, creation of a Perio Flap to expose the bone ridge and suturing is displayed. A daring film clip designed to create a visual outline of the surgical sequences followed in a typical extraction and bone grafting treatment.
- Say NO to Dentures at Every Opportunity
Too often (especially in gum disease treatments) dentures are often considered to be the only sensible treatment when tooth and bone loss is significant. Advancements in bone grafting, hybrid implant design and titanium bridge milling can be used creatively for some patients to build upon remaining bone, overcoming the assumed automatic requirement of total edentulation.

- All On 4 - Teeth In An Hour
A short demonstration of an actual Teeth-in-an-Hour implant surgery. Watch how 4 dental implants are placed in the lower jaw using the advanced technologies of implant surgery templates for achieving precision accuracy of placement. Multimedia clip provided by Dr. James Sanderson, Birmingham Alabama.
- Cosmetic Denture + Fixed Bridge Replaces Old Denture and Partial
Denture and partial replacements are needed from time to time. Waiting too long however can cause jaw bone mass (quality and quantity) to melt away which can prevent, for some patients, the inability to replace teeth easily. See how lower jawbone, almost totally lost due to a poor fitting partial, was rebuilt to create 12 new teeth from 3 remaining natural teeth. Designer denture products and porcelain bridge cosmetics recreate a powerful bite and good looks the patient had not had in several years.

- Periodontitis Full Mouth Reconstruction Case #2
Another example of how an upper arch with significant bone loss can be augmented with popular graft products and procedures to create a tight fitting upper denture.
The lower jaw had sufficient bone to create a cantilevered hybrid implant supported fixed porcelain bridge product providing the full complement of 12 new porcelain teeth. Normalized occlusion and bite was recreated with a functionally matched upper denture.

- 3D Diagnostics for treating deficient bone tissue conditions.
Reconstructive dental practices that have invested in advanced Cone Beam Catscan and specialized analysis software are able to conduct tissue assessments almost error free. The common experience of not discovering the need for bone grafting until surgery is underway is a thing of the past.
- Easy X-TRAC System: Animation Video Extraction Technology - Preventing Extraction Related Bone Loss
An animated demonstration of the Easy X-TRAC System that now provides dentists and dental specialists the ability to extract teeth with no bone loss, no tilting or twisting movements and, subsequently, no post-traumatic swelling. Additional benefits may include the the avoidance of needed bone restoration (grafting) and healing time of soft tissue. The technology enables many patients to receive immediate implantation after extractions (see other videos). Animation footage created by A-Titan Instruments.
- Immediate Load Implant after Easy X-TRAC Protocol
The Easy X-TRAC protocol oftentimes produces a clean tooth extraction socket that can be prepared for an immediate load implant. Periodontal tissue damage and bone loss is minimal or non existant. See how a specific implant device is selected to create the best treatment outcome based on tissue characteristics after extraction.
- Making a Palateless Denture: Start to Finish
Acrylic denture products are often used as a provisional prosthetic when undergoing treatments for implant supported fixed bridgework. See how a common acrylic immediate denture is modified, by hand, into a palateless denture for an upper arch tooth replacement treatment.

respiratory distress and hypotension. The symptoms can be caused by misuse of the product (some patients reportedly using denture cleaners as a mouthwash) or by a known allergen contained within the formulation of different denture cleaners, an allergen known as persulfate.
Alternatives for Dentures
- Implant Supported Full Arch Reconstruction: Bridge In A Day
Implant supported bridgework is the procedure of choice when the desire is to avoid denture treatment. Watch a VERY GRAPHIC 7+ minute video showing the removal of a failed cemented bridge caused by decay and destruction of anchor teeth.
