Teeth In A Day

What Is The DIEM 2 Treatment Concept?

DIEM2 is a contemporary restoration that has revolutionized the way surgeons and dentists think of replacing a full set of teeth. Standard dentures are unsecured prostheses with inherent limitations. Most often, dentures are painful, inconvenient and unstable. Such dentures can make chewing foods difficult, limiting the foods that you once enjoyed. Modern dentistry can help with DIEM2 implant supported dentures.

 Surgical Phase - Implant Supported Denture
  Restorative Phase - Implant Supported Dentures

The DIEM2 treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported in most cases with four dental implants. This depends on the amount of bone you have and the quality of bone you have. In some cases more than four dental implants will be needed. This is determined during your consultation with Dr. Russell. Please watch the YouTube video below which shows before and after pictures using DIEM2.

Dr. Russell utilizes the new DIEM2 system developed by Biomet 3i to create an implant supported denture restoration. The DIEM2 implant system utilizes full arch restorative solutions using angled implants to maximize anterior posterior spread with minimal implants and immediate loading of a denture. DIEM2  eliminates dentures for patients with hopeless dentition. It also eliminates loose fitting or painful dentures. DIEM2enables patients to return home on the day of surgery with a prosthesis that looks aesthetically  pleasing and limited function initially. With fewer implants needed cost is reduced. The DIEM2 solution also ensures greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone grafting surgery to increase bone volume.

Typically, a temporary set of teeth can be placed on the same day of surgery. The temporary teeth allow you to lead a normal life immediately after surgery. After a short healing period, your dentist will place the final bridge. Your quality of life is improved, and you can start enjoying your favorite foods again with renewed confidence.
