How Implant Retained Dentures Can Give Peace of Mind

Friday, December 15th, 2017

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.

If you’re interested in implant-retained dentures and you’d like to find out how they could benefit you, call and book a consultation today or get in touch with us online. We could help to make your denture dramas a thing of the past.

Dentures Feel Loose? How Dental Implants Could Help You        

Friday, June 30th, 2017

Do you wear dentures? Have you found that your dentures sometimes feel loose? Are you worried about eating in public or have your dentures started to become painful? If you’ve experienced any of these common denture problems, we may have the solution you’ve been searching for: dental implants.

About dental implants

Dental implants are small titanium devices, which are designed to replace the root of a missing tooth. Because of their versatility, they can replace either a single or multiple missing teeth, and they offer a host of advantages for patients who have lost some or all of their natural teeth. One of the best things about dental implants is their versatility. Once the implant has been placed in a socket in the jaw bone, it can then be attached to a crown, a dental bridge or a denture.

The benefits of stabilised dentures

Usually, dentures are secured by the natural suction power provided by the gums. With stabilised dentures, the dentures are held in place by dental implants. With implants, the denture is supported in the same way as a natural, healthy tooth would be anchored by a strong root. With implants there to stabilise the denture, there’s no risk of the dentures slipping or becoming loose, and you can enjoy eating in public without any anxiety at all. There’s no risk of the denture causing irritation as a result of it not fitting properly and you can also enjoy enhanced bite power.

Professional Advice for Denture Wearers

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

If you have missing teeth, dentures can be a wonderfully effective solution. Dentures are sets of prosthetic teeth, which enable you to do everything you could do with healthy natural teeth. We are able to provide custom-made partial and full dentures. If you have dentures, or you’re thinking about getting dentures, here is some professional advice, which may prove useful.

Caring for your dentures

When you have dentures, it’s important to look after them. This involves taking good care of your mouth, and keeping your dentures clean. To prevent the risk of oral disease, you’ll need to keep your mouth clean. If you have natural teeth remaining, brush them as normal, and take steps to remove bacteria and food debris from your denture. You can use cleaning solution or gently wipe your dentures clean. If you have any questions at all about looking after your dentures, ask your dentist. Always use lukewarm water when you’re rinsing the denture; if you use boiling water, this may result in distortion. When you take your denture out, make sure you keep it somewhere safe. Don’t clean your denture over a hard surface without putting down a cloth or towel first. By doing this, you’ll prevent damage if you drop the denture.

Seeing your dentist

When you have dentures, regular dental visits are strongly recommended. Your dentist can keep an eye on your mouth and check the condition and fit of your denture. If you do experience any discomfort, or you’re worried about the fit of your denture between appointments, call us, and we’ll arrange to see you as quickly as possible. Ill-fitting dentures can cause irritation and soreness, so it’s important to address any problems as a priority.
