A single missing tooth, or one or two in different places, are reliably replaced by single dental implants. Dental implants are incredibly useful, and they don’t just have to replace one single tooth. For example, are you missing multiple teeth but are growing weary of the unreliability of your dentures? Well, you can now receive implant-retained dentures that are much more reliable than these temporary solutions. Let’s discover implant-retained dentures in Stoke-on-Trent!
Implant-retained dentures are exactly what they sound like – natural-looking and realistic dentures that and secured in your jawbone by dental implants. A regular and removable denture sits on the gums and is often secured to the roof of your mouth or lower palate with unpleasant-tasting glue, though an implant-retained denture doesn’t require this. It has special attachments that fix your denture onto your implants, so you can still remove them to clean them and to sleep but enjoy all of confidence of eating, chewing, and talking normally.
In terms of enhancing the quality of life, we find that our patients feel implant-retained dentures are absolutely worth it. With the correct care they can be long-lasting, reliable, and restore the form and function of your mouth with ease.
Typically, your implant-retained dentures will be placed in two steps. Everyone’s treatment journey is unique to them, so once we’ve ascertained that you are suitable to receive this treatment and we’ve conducted your x-rays and preparation, we’ll begin to plan your procedures. Two minor surgeries are required, and these are performed under local anaesthetic which speaks to how minor they are! We first place your implants, which will usually be in the front of your mouth because this area is where your jawbone is usually denser. The first of your two procedures will place the titanium implant roots in your jawbone, where they will fuse to create a strong foundation. The second comes after around 6 months because we first allow your gums to heal. We then expose the top of the implants and fit the implant-retained dentures on top. Simple!
