Be confident in your everyday denture wear
Experience the freedom of dentures that feel more stable and more secure. As little as two dental implants in your lower jaw are proven to significantly help overcome the social and physical limitations experienced by complete denture wearers.
Dentures retained by dental implants, will make you feel healthier, happier and more confident in your everyday life the way you want.
How implants can be used to stabilise dentures
Dental implants can be placed in either the upper or lower jaws. Due to the biocompatible properties of Titanium, the individual dental implants fuse with your jaw-bone and become a solid anchor for your replacement dentures.
Normally 4 implants in upper jaw, and just 2 implants in lower jaw are enough to stabilize your dentures.
The simplest method of doing this is to use a ‘press stud’ style attachment on dental implants known as a locator abutment.
The implants have a ‘press stud’ style attachment included with the opposite end of the attachment within the denture. This allows the dentures to be pressed into the mouth and ‘clicked’ in place. Although there can still be slight movement with this restoration it is a world away from a complete denture and offers security, stability and confidence for patients who experience difficulty wearing dentures.
Benefits of dental implants for denture stabilisation:
- Restore proper chewing just like natural teeth allowing a better diet and improved health.
- You can eat and chew every type of food.
- Improve your speech and confidence.
- Improve your sense of taste because upper denture does not cover the palate.
- Improve denture comfort with less irritation of gum tissue.
