If you have loose or ill-fitting dentures, your ability to eat and speak may become affected. Due to advances in dentistry, there is now a procedure whereby your denture can be fixed to your jaw with dental implants. This treatment, known as implant overdentures or denture stabilisation, offers patients with dentures a more permanent solution and can improve your quality of life significantly. You will be able to enjoy your favourite foods again and feel comfortable smiling, safe in the knowledge that your dentures are staying put.
How Do We Stabilise Dentures?
The first step is to place dental implants into your jaw. Once they have integrated with the bone and surrounding tissues for a period of time, your dentures are placed on top of the implants through a range of special fixtures. This means your dentures can still be removed for cleaning, but will stay put once in place.
What Are The Benefits Of Overdentures?
When you have your dentures secured in place it will provide you with a whole host of benefits:
- Less irritation of your gums
- No need to take your teeth out at night
- Natural looking smile
- Improved confidence
- Eat all your favourite foods
- No fear of your teeth falling out in public places
