Implant Retained Dentures

Dentures can be a compromise, they may cause irritation to the gums and move when eating or talking causing embarrassment. Dental Implants may be used to support your dentures to provide a more comfortable solution and give you more confidence.

The Dental Implants are made of titanium and are placed into the bone to replace the tooth roots. The implants need time to integrate into the jaw before they can be used for supporting the dentures. This typically takes 10 to 12 weeks.

Once the dental implants have been placed and allowed to integrate into the bone, special attachments may be connected which allow dentures to be made which clip into place. This produces greater security and allows you to eat a greater range of foods.

The advantages of dental implants are:

  • Eliminates movement and irritation.
  • Improves your ability to bite and chew.
  • Preserves your jaw bone which shrinks away after tooth removal.
  • Greater confidence when smiling and talking.
  • No need to use denture adhesives.

Single Dental Implant

An implant is a great option for a single missing tooth, both at the front or the back of the mouth.

A single dental implant may be placed in the mouth to replace the root of the tooth and a crown created to match the adjacent teeth.

Multiple Dental Implants

If more than one tooth is missing, there may still be dental implant options open to you.

In some situations a single dental implant may be used to support 2 missing teeth, or multiple dental implants can be used to support several missing teeth.
