Implant

supported dentures

 

If you wear dentures, you’ll know that they can be prone to moving around in your mouth. This can make eating certain foods a real challenge and can cause irritation. Even the best of dentures, especially lower dentures, will move around.

So, how can you avoid this movement? One option is Implant Supported Dentures. This is when your dentures are attached to two or four implants on either the upper or lower jaw. This procedure secures the denture in place and eliminates any unwanted movement.

At first glance, an implant supported denture may look like a traditional denture; however, there is much more to it than meets the eye. Its unique design allows the denture to be attached to a series of dental implants that are inserted into the jawbone.

WHY CHOOSE

IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURES

REPLACING DENTURES

If you wear dentures, then you know all about the challenges of eating certain foods and the constant irritation of lower dentures moving about in your mouth.

Implants can help keep your dentures firmly in place so you can enjoy eating again and without constant denture irritation.

In some cases, existing dentures can be adapted to accept implant supports. You may only require two or three implants in the lower jaw and that will be enough to support the lower denture.

 

When teeth at the back are missing or all teeth have been completely lost

If you have teeth that cannot be saved due to decay or disease, the only alternative may be to remove and replace. Dr Kent will assess your situation and suggest the best option. Many people who have terminal teeth will opt for full mouth dental implants as it can restore their facial structure and smile within 24 hours.

Dental Implant Procedure

STEP 2
Placing the dental implants

Remaining teeth are removed and dental implants are placed. You can choose to remain awake or be put to sleep (Sleep Dentistry). It is recommended to have 4 - 6 dental implants in the upper jaw and 4 dental implants in the lower jaw which has a higher bone quality and density. Generally, the more dental implants you have, the more support and less movement you will experience with your dentures.
The implants will need 3 – 4 months to osseo-integrate (the implants will ‘fuse’ with your bone), during which time you will wear traditional temporary dentures so you will leave the appointment with teeth.

STEP 3
Placing abutments and fitting dentures

After osseo-integration, implant abutments are placed directly into your dental implants. These will then be able to connect with rubber attachments within your dentures.
Implant-supported removable dentures don’t cover as much of your oral tissues as traditional dentures. They are more comfortable and allow improved function, easier maintenance and a more natural appearance.
