Using implants to stabilise dentures

Do you lack self- confidence because of loose dentures? Dental implants could be the solution for you!

Many denture wearers often complain of discomfort when eating and chewing, as they feel their dentures are loose in their mouth. In addition to this, an individual’s self-confidence is often compromised as they worry that their dentures may move when smiling or speaking. Although denture fixatives do help hold the denture in position, the paste can be hard to apply and a messy process. If these daily struggles are something you can relate to then your best option could be to stabilise your denture with an implant retained solution.


How do dental implants help stabilise dentures?

It is possible to use just a small number of dental implants to securely fix your denture in place, using an advanced treatment known as the mini or denture implant.

The implant is placed where there is sufficient bone. Once integrated in the jaw; small retaining elements, which are similar to a ‘press stud’, are attached to the implant and used to hold the denture in place.

By undergoing a simple denture stabilisation technique your life can be transformed, as your confidence will once again be restored.

Is the implant denture stabilisation technique expensive?

When evaluating the cost of the treatment, it is important to weigh up the long-term benefits of the solution. An implant retained denture provides such superior comfort and confidence that our patients regularly say they wish they had done it sooner.

At Chris Wood Dental Implant Solutions there are two alternative options of treatments for you to choose from. The first includes creating a custom-made denture to accompany the placed implants or alternatively you could opt for the more cost effective solution known as the ‘mini-implant’ which is used in conjunction with your existing dentures.

The latter involves a simple surgery where your existing denture is modified to incorporate the retaining elements of the implant.
