Permanent Implant Supported Dentures
The loss of multiple teeth can cause a wide range of issues for patients. The bone under or above the lost teeth shrinks, which can cause changes to your facial structure, making you look older or frailer than you actually are. Your conﬁdence, pronunciation and ability to chew and eat hard or sticky foods may also be aﬀected. Dental implants are the only permanent solution to tooth loss and can help alleviate the issues mentioned above.
How denture implants work
Also described as ‘false teeth implants’ and ‘screw in teeth’, ﬁxed implant dentures provide a more comfortable and solid foundation compared to a traditional denture. Typically between four and eight implant posts, made out of titanium, are ﬁxed into your jaw following a small surgical procedure. The implants integrate with the jaw bone just like natural permanent teeth, providing a strong and solid foundation on which the dentures can be placed onto.
Many traditional denture wearers suﬀer from gum pain and soreness caused by dentures slipping or rubbing because they do not ﬁt properly. Fixed ﬁrmly and securely to implants, permanent dentures provide a strong and solid tooth replacement solution, enabling you to bite and chew with conﬁdence and eat the foods you love. Implant ﬁxed dentures are also easier to clean and maintain.
