As well as losing the ability to eat the foods you love and speak with clarity, missing teeth can bring about complications such as jawbone loss, unwanted facial changes and a greater risk of gum disease and decay. Missing teeth can also make you prone to head and jaw ache, due to other teeth shifting out of position. Implant retuned dentures can improve your quality of life by reversing the complications associated with missing teeth and getting you smiling again.
Dental implants anchor dentures in place, so you won’t have to worry about them slipping. They will remain securely in position until you wish to take them out.
As they’re supported by dental implants, the dentures provide stimulation for your bone and gums and offer a fantastic level of comfort as you go about your daily life. They also fill out the cheek area, creating a natural-looking and ‘fuller’ facial aesthetic.
Dental implants are surgically placed into the jaw, and as they’re made from titanium, they’re highly compatible with the human body. Connecting elements (known as abutments), are then affixed to the screws, which attach to your custom made dentures.
The length of time it takes for the implant retained dentures process to be complete will depend on factors such as how quickly the patient heals, their age and their genetics.Back to Dental Implants
