IMPLANT RETAINED DENTURES
Secure your dentures with dental implants in Harpenden
Implants can be placed to support a denture. The advantage of this is that it gives the denture greater stability and comfort and the implants will allow the jawbone to be retained in the area where they are placed.
- Loose and uncomfortable dentures can have a real impact on the quality of life for denture-wearers. Fixed, stable teeth can improve confidence, chewing ability and speech. At Wayside Dental, we have years of experience ‘fixing’ dentures for our patients in Harpenden, St Albans and all over Hertfordshire, so that these problems don’t occur.
- Typically, dentures rest on the gums and on any remaining teeth. For many patients, dentures will adversely affect these tissues until eventually, more teeth are lost and the jawbone erodes. As these supporting structures are lost, the denture becomes more difficult to wear.
- Placing implants to retain dentures provides greater long-term stability and comfort for denture wearers. Stabilising uncomfortable, slipping dentures with dental implants can improve oral function when speaking and eating and can enhance appearance.
