Denture Implants; ( Upgrade your Denture)
About a millions of people in UK are missing all their teeth in their lower jaw. Many of them struggle to keep their false teeth secure. If you are one of them, you already know about the embarrassment of loose denture, not being able to eat to chew your food properly and the ineffectiveness of denture adhesives. Fortunately, there is now a way to stabilize your denture with implants and make it work the way it was intended.
Although dentures can adequately work well in replicating the look of real teeth, they often fall short when it comes to their function. Now you can keep your teeth in, enjoy your food and look good with Implant dentures. With new lightweight polymer over dentures available, we are able to get rid of the big bulky acrylic plastic dentures that have been around since the beginning of the last century.
Implant dentures eliminate the need for denture adhesives and presents a new level comfort and ease in patient’s life. This option can even make sore gums obsolete.
Implants Denture Stabilization
In this procedure titanium screws (Dental Implants) with integrated ball-tops are placed, where they will fuse into the bone. The procedure typically takes less than an hour, and is performed under local anaesthesia. Your existing denture is modified to sit comfortably over the implants during the healing phase. After the implants have healed, your denture is modified to snap onto the ball-tops. This denture will be secure until you remove it for cleaning.
Daily cleaning of Implant dentures consists of removing your denture at night and brushing around your Dental Implants to remove any food and plaque. Brushing also stimulates blood flow in the surrounding gum tissue.
As a removable denture has been made to fit over your dental implants, it is important that, your denture is replaced every five years, by your Implant dentist. Failure to do so , may place

- No adhesives or pastes
- Alleviation of bad breath associated with dentures
- Restored functionality and ability to chew, drink, and speak normally
- Increased comfort
- Simplified maintenance – dentures can be cleaned and brushed the same way natural teeth are cared for
- Reduced potential for bone atrophy
Ball Attachment Dentures
One option is to have two implants placed in your lower jaw and a denture made that snaps onto these implants. This option allows your lower denture to be more stable while chewing than without implants. However, there will still be movement of your lower denture, and sore spots will occur if any food particles, especially seeds, are caught under it. As with all removable replacement teeth, you still will need periodic appointments for denture adjustment.Discuss Your Implant Options
