Articles Securing Your New Dentures Using Dental Implants
Are you having trouble with your dentures or are you looking for a more stable, functional alternative to dentures for missing teeth? If so, we recommend implant-retained dentures. This type of treatment involves securing new dentures with dental implants, small titanium rods that act as a substitute for tooth roots.
What does treatment involve?
When you have a traditional denture, the denture is held in place by the natural suction power of the gums. Although many people don’t experience any issues with their dentures, there is a risk that dentures can come loose or slip and slide, especially if they don’t fit perfectly. With implant-retained dentures, there’s no risk of a denture slipping at all, as the denture is stabilised by implants. Implants are placed inside sockets in the jaw bone and then they can be attached to a denture, a bridge or a crown. The implant provides the same level of strength and stability as a healthy tooth root, which increases bite power, prevents soreness and improves aesthetics.
What’s so good about implant-retained dentures?
Dentures offer multiple benefits, and many people are very happy with their denture. However, it’s not uncommon for issues to crop up, which are usually linked to slight movement in the denture or a fit that isn’t quite perfect. With implants there to secure the denture, it’s possible to maximise the power of the denture, at the same time as ensuring total stability. Implants anchor the denture, enabling you to eat whatever you want and enjoy peace of mind that your denture cannot slip.
