Implant Supported Upper Dentures Not Passive: What Can I Do?

Last Updated November 25, 2015

I have 5 dental implants that were done by an oral surgeon to support upper dentures (bar-retained dentures). The surgeon did not use CT guided implant placement tools. The problem now is that the bar-retained dentures are “not passive” and the attendant strain is causing screw loosening. I’ve also had an implant break because of this and it has since been replaced. What can I do? Can I get a new upper denture fabricated? Can a CT be taken now to make a mold of my upper jaw to facilitate creating an appropriate new denture?
