If your dentures feel unstable in your mouth, implants may offer the solution.
Dental implants are now widely used for both single and multiple teeth replacement. Their strength, longevity and ease of care make them very popular with an increasing number of our Purley patients. One use that they are perhaps less well known for though, is their role in securing loose dentures.
With millions of people wearing false teeth, it is very likely that many will have become accustomed to having them, and will have adjusted to them so that they are generally, happy to eat with them. Few denture wearers though will deny that there are times when their dentures let them down, either by moving around in their mouth, or creating difficulties when eating certain foods.
At the Confidental Clinic in Purley, we are able to offer a solution to these problems in the shape of implant retained dentures.
The implant procedure
Depending on each individual case, we typically use anything from two to four dental implants to stabilise your dentures. This does require some minor oral surgery but this will be done using a strong local anaesthetic and should cause no more discomfort that some other dental procedures.
Once the implants have been placed, your dentures can then be attached to the implants, providing you with a stability that you may not have thought possible.
