If you have lost all of your natural teeth, you may be struggling with unsecured dentures. While dentures are a great way to replace your missing teeth, traditional dentures do not address other common problems associated with tooth loss, including bone loss and shrinking gums, which can cause your dentures to become loose and uncomfortable. Dental implants are an excellent way to address these problems, and to give you a smile to be proud of.
Dental implants are bionic tooth roots. When we lose teeth, we lose both the visible part of the tooth and the root below. Implants are small titanium screws that replace the root portion of the tooth. They are placed directly into the jaw bone in a minor surgical procedure. Here they integrate with the bone, helping to prevent bone loss and gum shrinkage, and providing a firm anchor for replacement teeth.
Denture stabilisation uses dental implants to secure your dentures. You will still be able to remove them for cleaning, but there is no danger of them becoming loose and uncomfortable, or of them slipping out at an inopportune moment.
The good news is that if you replace all your teeth with dental implants, you will not need as many implants as teeth. Our implant dentist will carefully plan your treatment and, after taking detailed x-rays, scans and impressions as necessary, will tell you how many implants you need.
For denture stabilisation, we commonly place four or six implants, which are carefully positioned so that they can withstand the forces created by biting and chewing. After a period of healing (usually a few months) your permanent dentures will be attached to your implants using special fixtures.
In some cases it is possible to attach restorations at the same time as placing your implants. See our Same Day Smiles page for details.
