If you have loose or ill-fitting dentures, your ability to eat and speak may become affected. Due to advances in dentistry, there is now a procedure whereby your denture can be fixed to your jaw with dental implants. This treatment, known as implant overdentures or denture stabilisation, offers patients with dentures a more permanent solution and can improve quality of life significantly. You will be able to enjoy your favourite foods again and feel comfortable smiling, safe in the knowledge that your dentures are staying put.
If you are tired of your dentures or your smile letting you down, or of missing out on enjoying a juicy steak or crisp apple, come and talk to us about implant retained dentures and find out how we can help put a smile back on your face.
To improve the stability of your dentures they can be anchored to one or more dental implants. An artificial root made from titanium is placed in the jaw and a denture with precision attachments is constructed that clips onto the implants very firmly.
The result is a denture that is stable and retentive. Studies have found that patients with implant-retained dentures (or dentures over implants as they are sometimes known) have improved speech, better chewing efficiency, increased nutritional intake and a general improved quality of life when compared to their conventional dentures.
So if you are looking to get implant retained dentures, please get in touch to book an appointment or call our dental clinic in Liskeard on 01579 342348.
This depends on how many teeth you have missing. As a general rule we can ‘bridge’ between implants, so if you have four teeth missing in a row we could place two implants at each end and suspend two teeth between them. If you have no teeth at all, then it is possible to provide a new full set of teeth with four or six implants.
When teeth are lost the bone that held them in your jaw will shrink. Placement of dental implants can preserve this bone, maintaining the shape and structure of the lips and cheeks preventing the ageing ‘caved in’ look of older people with dentures.
Dental implant treatment starts from £3,850. Over time, dental implants will prove to be the most cost-effective solution to replacing missing teeth.
