Implant retained dentures Lichfield denture stabilisation Staffordshire
Dental implant retained dentures are the perfect treatment for those who suffer from loose, unstable dentures and have found little solution with pastes or adhesives.
Implant retained dentures use four dental implants which are fitted at strategic points in the jaw to provide a strong, stable base for dentures to sit on. Treatment times vary but to ensure complete fusion between implant and jawbone a healing time of 4 to 6 months is recommended. The combination of dentures and implants promises a stronger, more confident smile.
Over time dentures can become loose, leading to problems when eating, speaking or smiling. Loose dentures can also wear down the jawbone, meaning your dentures will need to be replaced every 5 to 10 years as your bite changes. Implant retained dentures are able to prevent movement and maintain the health of your jawbone. They can last a much longer span of time and prevent the embarrassment of loose dentures.
If you have been suffering with loose dentures for years, then dental implant retained dentures could be the answer to your problems. However, they may be unsuitable for some people, especially those who have low bone density or have suffered bone loss and those who are suffering with gum disease.
