Implant Retained Dentures
If you have dentures, you will be aware that they move around as you eat and speak. This tends to get worse over time because the jaw gradually shrinks when there are no teeth present.
Eventually, there may be little bone for the dentures to rest on causing dentures to slip and slide, fall when speaking, or make chewing some foods impossible. While dental implants are used to replace single teeth, denture implants can be used to hold your dentures in place.
We have helped many patients to enjoy the benefits of stable dentures through treatment with implant retained dentures. Between two and four implants can be used to anchor dentures in your mouth.
The implants peep out of your gums a tiny bit and the denture then clips onto these to secure itself into position. Your dentures can be removed at night when you sleep and when you wish to clean them.
