Implant Dentures Port Macquarie
Implant dentures may be an option if you’re finding that your dentures just won’t stay put no matter the amount of glue you apply.
Dental implants placed in your jaw can secure a denture to help you eat, laugh and speak with confidence again. Are you are worried about your dentures coming loose in social or work situations, or are struggling to eat the foods you love? See us for a consultation to learn more and see if you're a candidate for implant dentures.
The problem with dentures
Dentures have been the mainstay of tooth replacement for centuries. However, they're only ever able to restore limited function. For some, keeping them put becomes difficult after years of wear and the accompanying bone loss in the jaw. Retention is extra problematic in lower dentures where the tongue can cause them to slip and slide.
Implant Denture Options
This cost-effective method is for the lower jaw only. Two implants in your bottom jaw with 'magnet' type attachments securely hold your denture in place. The back part of the denture rests on the gums. With the increased retention you'll be confident that your dentures are going to fall out and you'll also be able to eat a wider variety of foods.
FIXED IMPLANT DENTURES
Fixed implant dentures or All-on-4 is an option for both top or bottom jaws. This advanced treatment means that with four dental implants you can have an entirely fixed set of teeth. Unlike the 'snap-in' type solution this is not removable and does not rest on your gums, only your dentist can remove the teeth.
What is the implant denture process?
'Snap-in' type implant dentures take between 3-6 months to complete.
