Our implant-retained dentures are custom-made for the anatomy of your mouth and will look and feel just like real teeth.
Step 1) Consultation
A thorough consultation is necessary before going ahead with implant retained dentures treatment. This is:
Step 2) Surgery
If we identify any failing teeth, these will be to be extracted before your implants can be placed. Your gum will also need time to heal post-extraction, but we will fit you with a temporary set of dentures in this instance.
If we can proceed with implant placement right away, we will fit you with a temporary bridge. You should recover from your surgery after 72 hours, and it will take approximately 3 – 6 months for your implants to fully integrate with your jawbone.
Step 3) Permanent bridge
Your permanent set of dentures will be ready to affix once your jaw has healed.
What is the advantage of fixing dentures in place with implants?
When implants are placed, the jawbone grows around them, forging a connection that keeps your jawbone healthy in the long term. Once your dentures are screwed in over the top, you won’t suffer any facial changes as a result of jawbone resorption and your jawbone will also retain its density. This means it won’t be as vulnerable to fractures, as if you were to opt for a non-implant-supported treatment.
Our modern cosmetic dentures are created with fewer denture bases than the models of the past. This means more of your palate will be exposed, giving you an improved ability to taste the foods you eat.
Can my old dentures be used?
It may be possible to use your existing dentures, though this will depend on their fit and quality. It’s generally favourable to create new dentures that have been specifically designed to suit the number of implants we place.
