What are implant retained dentures?

Implant-retained dentures, also known as implant-supported dentures, are a modern and highly effective solution for individuals who have lost most or all of their natural teeth. Unlike traditional dentures that rest on the gums and may require adhesives, implant-retained dentures are anchored securely to dental implants placed in the jawbone. This provides exceptional stability, preventing issues like slippage or discomfort often associated with traditional dentures. Not only do implant-retained dentures restore a confident and functional smile, but they also promote better oral health by preserving bone density in the jaw. If you’re looking for a long-lasting, secure, and comfortable tooth replacement solution, implant-retained dentures are the superior choice.

What are the benefits of implant retained dentures?

Enhanced Stability

Implant-retained dentures are securely anchored to dental implants, eliminating the risk of denture slippage or movement. This stability provides confidence during everyday activities such as eating, speaking, and socialising.

Optimised Comfort

These dentures offer a comfortable fit because they do not rely on the gums for support. This means reduced irritation, discomfort, and the need for adhesives, enhancing overall comfort for the wearer.

Improved Eating Capability

Implant-retained dentures provide significantly improved biting and chewing strength compared to traditional dentures. This allows individuals to enjoy a wider range of foods without limitations.

Jawbone Preservation

By stimulating the jawbone, implant retained dentures prevent bone loss which often occurs when teeth are missing. This helps maintain facial structure and oral health, preventing a sunken appearance in the lower face.

Longevity and Confidence

With proper care and maintenance, implant-retained dentures are highly durable and can last for many years, ensuring lasting confidence and a dependable solution for missing teeth.

FAQ’s

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They provide a stable foundation for attaching replacement teeth, such as crowns or dentures. Over time, the implant fuses with the bone through a process called osseointegration, ensuring a secure and permanent fit.

Most individuals with good oral and general health can be candidates for dental implants. Your dentist will assess your specific situation, considering factors like bone density, gum health, and medical history. In some cases, additional procedures, such as bone grafting, may be necessary to ensure implant success.

Dental implant placement is typically done under local anaesthesia, ensuring that you do not feel pain during the procedure. Afterward, some discomfort and swelling are common, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications and typically subsides within a few days.

Dental implants are known for their durability and longevity. With proper care and maintenance, they can last a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices are essential to ensure the longevity of your dental implants.

Dental implant coverage varies by insurance plans. Some dental insurance policies may cover a portion of the cost, while others may not cover implants at all. It’s important to check with your insurance provider to understand your coverage and explore financing options if needed.
