Implant Retained Dentures in Culcheth

Implant secured dentures are dentures that “click onto” strategically placed single tooth dental implants.

You may have trouble chewing certain food or speaking clearly. You may get more frequent headaches or have jaw discomfort due to the shifting of your remaining teeth. Implant secured dentures can help alleviate all of these issues.

Why are implant-retained dentures preferable to standard dentures?

Using dental implants to anchor the dentures keeps the dentures securely in place and relieves you from worry about slippage. These dentures will stay in position until you want to take them out.

Additionally, attaching the dentures keeps bone and gums healthy by keeping the overall structure of your mouth engaged. Plus, the fit of implant secured dentures are more comfortable and give you a more natural look.

    How are implant retained dentures fitted? 

    First, dental implants are inserted into the jaw. These implants are tiny screws made of titanium alloy and are safe and compatible with the human body. They are designed to mimic the natural shape of a tooth root. Connecting elements called abutments are affixed to the screws, which then attach to the dentures.

      How long does the whole process take?

      The length of time for fitting implant secured dentures varies depending on several factors. From your initial consultation through to the end of the healing period there are many steps to consider. Each case is different, and each patient heals differently.
