Upgrade your dentures with dental implants

August 6, 2023

Due to advancement in technology teeth replacement solutions have certainly changed over the years. Traditional dentures are no longer the only option and are sometimes thought of as ‘old fashioned’ and cumbersome. Dentists hear so many reasons that patients who wear dentures would like to change them, the most common complaint being movement. As dentures are not fixed to your jaw (like your own teeth) they can slip and come loose when talking or eating. Even the thought of this happening can affect the wearer’s confidence and wellbeing.

Your natural teeth anchor to the bone in your jaw, which of course prevents movement. Other than using a high-quality denture adhesive there is little else you can do to make traditional dentures more stable or reliable.

Thankfully we can now modify your dentures into a system that works perfectly. Dental implants act like artificial tooth roots, the implant itself is a small, strong post which is placed directly into your jaw holding your dentures securely in place. Dental implants can either be used individually to replace one tooth (perhaps lost in an accident) or several implants can secure a full set of teeth

We can use dental implants to support teeth replacement treatments such as dentures, bridges, or crowns. Whilst artificial, a dental implant will function just like a natural tooth and will allow you to eat a wider range of foods. You will never have to worry about your teeth becoming dislodged so you can enjoy a crunchy apple or juicy steak again!

Dental Implant treatment can transform your smile and renew your confidence with fantastic, life changing results. We want to make dental treatment an option for everyone, and we are committed to keeping our treatments affordable. Contact us today to see if you are suitable for dental implant treatment and wave goodbye to ill-fitting dentures.
