Struggling With Loose Dentures?
Although dentures are a popular way of replacing missing teeth, as a North Harrow dentist, we’re only too well aware that many of our patients grow increasingly frustrated with dentures that slide and move around in their mouths. Not only is it a challenge to keep them in place when talking and eating, but they can make the gums and cheeks sore. For some people the problem is so acute that they feel unable to socialise and end up almost a recluse in their own home.
Fortunately life doesn’t have to be this way. We can use dental implants in North Harrow to stabilise your dentures and keep them secure in your mouth, which makes a great alternative to traditional removable dentures.
Benefits of implant retained dentures include:
- Maintains your facial structures by minimising bone loss in the jaw
- Improves the functionality of your dentures allowing you to eat a wider variety of foods such as crisp vegetables and fruit, nuts, and lean meats
- No more embarrassment since your dentures are held firmly in place so you can get on with life without worrying what your teeth are doing
- No need for dental adhesives and fixatives
- Restores lip loss giving your a fuller mouth and minimising wrinkles around the mouth
A bottom denture may only need two conventional implants to hold it firmly in place and can totally transform your life for the better. Special clips are attached to the underside of the dentures and these snap into place with corresponding clips attached to the implants. The dentures are then easily snapped on and off for cleaning. Alternatively, in the event that your jaw bone is very thin due to bone loss, your North Harrow dentist may be able to use four mini implants which require minimum surgery to place. These implants are shorter than conventional implants and need less depth of bone. They can also be used in areas where there isn’t room to accommodate a conventional implant. They’re positioned and angled in such a way that they support your denture safely and securely.
