Do you find dentures difficult or are you looking for a long-term solution for missing teeth? If so, we may have just the treatment for you. Implant-retained dentures offer a wealth of benefits for patients looking for an effective means of replacing lost teeth.
Implant-retained dentures are fixed dentures which are stabilised and secured by dental implants. Traditionally, dentures are held in place by the suction power provided by the gums, but with implant-retained dentures, the denture is anchored by implants. Implants are small titanium rods, which are screwed into the jaw bone. The aim is for the implant to take on the role of the tooth root. When you have implant-retained dentures, the implants are placed inside the jaw bone, and then the denture is attached. The result is a stable, highly functional set of natural looking teeth.
Dentures have been used to replace missing teeth for many years, and they are a tried and tested method. There are lots of benefits of wearing dentures, but some people do have trouble with their dentures. If your dentures don’t fit perfectly, they can cause pain and soreness, and some people feel apprehensive and anxious about their denture slipping out of position. With implants in place to secure the denture, there’s absolutely no risk of the denture moving. Implants provide peace of mind, but they also enhance bite power and functionality, so you can eat what you like. If you long to smile with confidence, this could be the ideal solution for you!
