Dental implants can end your denture worries for good. At Smile Design Dental in Buckinghamshire, our experienced implant dentist can use a procedure known as denture stabilisation to ensure that your dentures remain firmly in place, with no danger of becoming loose and uncomfortable.
For many years, a dentist who needed to replace all of a patient’s missing teeth only had one option, and that was traditional dentures. Dentures have been around in some form or another for centuries, and while it is true that the modern versions offer exceptional comfort and look very natural, they are not without their problems.
The issue with traditional dentures is that they only replace the crowns of the teeth. With no replacement for the roots, the jaw bone has a tendency to shrink back or resorb, which can cause traditional dentures to become loose and uncomfortable, even in danger of slipping out at an unfortunate moment.
Dental implants give your dentist a way to prevent this. They are titanium bionic tooth roots, and they form a direct bond with your jaw bone, helping to prevent bone loss whilst simultaneously ensuring your dentures stay exactly where they should.
The process of placing dental implants requires minor oral surgery, which is carried out here at our Buckinghamshire practice under local anaesthetic. You will then require a few months of healing, during which you should still be able to wear your regular dentures, whilst your implants form a strong bond with your bone.
After healing is complete, you will be called back to our Buckinghamshire dental practice so that your dentist can secure your dentures to your implants using a range of special attachments. You will still be able to remove your dentures to clean them, but otherwise they will remain firmly in your mouth at all times.Back to Blog
