Have you had troubles with your dentures? Are you worried about eating in public or do you wish your dentures felt more secure? If you’ve answered yes to these questions, we recommend implant-retained dentures. With this type of denture, you can enjoy peace of mind, as well as a host of functional benefits.
What are implant-retained dentures?
Implant-retained dentures are dentures that are stabilised and secured by dental implants. Usually, the denture is held in place by the natural suction power of the gums, but in this case, dental implants are used to support the denture. Dental implants are small titanium appliances, which assume the role of the tooth root when the natural tooth has been lost. Once an implant is in place, it offers the same level of stability and functionality as a healthy root.
Implant-retained dentures are advantageous for denture wearers because they offer greater strength and stability. There’s no risk of the denture coming loose when you eat and the denture will fit you perfectly, which eliminates the risk of sore spots and irritation. With implants there to support the denture, you can also enjoy increased bite power, so you won’t have to worry about what you can and can’t eat.
