A common problem for cosmetic denture wearers is that they find that their dentures wear loose. Not only can this cause embarrassment but over the long term it can also lead to extensive bone loss.

Implant retained dentures offer the solution to this issue for most patients.

The way in which implant retained dentures work is that two or four implants are placed in the lower jaw which makes it possible to attach a denture to small press studs, this provides excellent retention and stops denture movement.

There are many benefits for patients who chose implant retained dentures, including:

  • Stable and secure dentures to your gums
  • Smaller denture base covering the roof of your mouth
  • Improved speech with less denture base
  • A bite similar to your own natural teeth
  • Restored chewing ability and more enjoyment eating
  • Elimination of pressure points and sore spots

If in your case traditional dental implants are not suitable then mini dental implants can be used as an alternative. While they are not considered a long-term solution but do offer some advantages:

  • The treatment is less invasive
  • The treatment can be performed under local anaesthetic
  • The procedure and recovery time are quicker than with traditional implants

Like dental crowns, mini implants can also be used as part of a cosmetic dental treatment plan involving or as an individual treatment
