Dentures can be uncomfortable, irritating and embarrassing. Many people struggle to chew comfortably and even say that their self-confidence has been undermined by wearing a denture. With advances in implant dentistry, here at Ashby Dental & Implant Clinic we now have many innovative techniques for denture stabilisation which can transform your comfort, self-esteem and self-confidence with implant secured dentures.
The implants are titanium screws placed into the jaw, to replace original roots. Depending on the treatment, you may need between 2 and 8 implants to secure each denture in place. It’s a straightforward process which can be completed under local anaesthetic. The implants will need three to six months to heal and bond with your jaw bone to provide a solid support for your replacement tooth.
Temporary replacement teeth are usually fitted at the same time as your implant placement, or your own denture is modified, to use until the final restoration appointment.
Once everything has healed around the implants, special attachments are fitted and then your dentures are fitted to locate onto these, so replacing your missing teeth more securely than conventional dentures.
Dentures are then fitted on top, to replace your missing teeth.
