Are you unhappy with your dentures and seek alternative treatments? Bulky and uncomfortable dentures can be challenging for many patients. And although nowadays every effort is made to produce lightweight and comfortable dentures, bone loss can cause previously well-fitting dentures to become wobbly over time.
Denture stabilisation is mainly used to improve the stability, wear and effectiveness of dentures. There are different methods to stabilise dentures, yet the most effective is using dental implants to securely fix the denture in the patient’s mouth. Implant-retained dentures are full dentures that clip onto dental implants, which are anchored firmly in your gums much like natural teeth.
If you have dentures that make eating challenging or move around when you talk or smile, we can probably help. At Hertford Dental Implants, we use a small number of implants (usually two or four) to stabilise your denture. We can either stabilise your existing dentures or create custom-made ones to suit your individual needs.
Why choose implant-supported dentures?
Implant-retained dentures are fixed in your mouth securely and act like your natural teeth. The attachment clasps allow minimum movement in the same way it is expected with real teeth. At the same time, implant-supported dentures are comfortable to wear because they do not put pressure on your gums – they gain support and retention from the dental implants. For this reason, they are less likely to hurt your gums and cause irritation or inflammation.
Dentures fixed with dental implants are very stable because they are supported on a mechanism that resembles the way natural teeth are kept in place. As such, they do not become loose during talking or eating and can only be removed by yourself. Because of this, your will be able to enjoy your favourite foods and regain confidence in your social skills.
Finally, implant-retained dentures prevent bone degeneration and encourage the growth of healthy jawbone. As bone quality is maintained, the odds of needing denture adjustments is reduced which results in long-lasting, comfortable dentures.
