Many denture wearing patients tell us that they hope implants will stop their dentures from moving around and feeling loose when they are chewing, speaking, smiling and even kissing! In short they want their confidence to face everyday life back. Denture fixatives do help hold upper dentures in place a little better but add little to a lower denture that is loose. What’s more very few people like using them. If any of this sounds familiar than Denture Implant Stabilisation may be what you are looking for
The Lower Cost Dental Implant Solution
Stabilise Loose Dentures
If you have dentures that make chewing difficult or move around when you eat or smile we can probably help. It is entirely possible to use a small number of implants ( usually 2-4 ) to stabilise your denture making it firm and comfortable in use. This can help to restore your confidence eating, speaking and smiling in public at a lower cost than full implant bridgework.
How Denture Stabilisation With Implants Works
This image shows a typical denture stabilisation on the lower jaw. 2 implants are used with attachments that work in a similar way to press stud fasteners on clothes. These lock in to a second part that is fitted to the inside of the denture and can be adjusted for more or less retention. On the upper jaw we usually use 4 implants that are linked together.
Stabilisation of a problem denture with implants is best suited to full upper or lower dentures although modern techniques also allow us to look at improving partial dentures too.
