Implant Secured Dentures
Most People find dentures uncomfortable, irritating and embarrassing. They can also become loose over time and unstable during eating or talking. With advances in Implant dentistry, there are now many innovative techniques for denture stabilisation.
Dental Implants are titanium screws placed into the jaw, to replace original roots. It’s a straightforward process which can be completed under local anaesthetic. Implants need three to six months to heal and bond with your jaw bone.
Temporary replacement teeth are usually fitted at the same time as your implant placement and will remain until final restoration. Cost-effective options include use of mini-implants to stabilise an existing denture, to complete replacement of a denture anchored with fixed implants.
Depending on requirement, you may need 4 and 8 implants to secure each denture in place. This can transform your self-esteem and confidence by securing your dentures. Other advantages include:
- Improved eating function – reduced risk of digestive problems
- Facial tissue support to giving a more youthful appearance
- No more use of denture adhesives which can be nuisance
- Dentures supported with Implants can be removed to ease cleaning
