Are you searching for your next dentures? Why not try Implant Retained Dentures?

Smiles & More provide denture services across the North West, and we understand the importance of having a great smile.

This latest Smiles & More blog explains everything you need to know about them.

Implant Retained Dentures

Dental implants are a popular solution for patients missing one or more teeth.

An implant is a small titanium screw that is inserted into the jawbone to serve as a replacement for the tooth root.

Once the implant has healed, it can support a dental prosthesis, such as a crown, bridge, or denture.

Implant-retained dentures are dentures that are supported by dental implants.

This type of denture has several advantages over traditional dentures, which are not supported by implants.

They look, feel and function just like your natural teeth, so they are an excellent way of helping people overcome some physical and social limitations experienced by complete or partial denture wearers.

As little as two to four dental implants can make you feel healthier, happier and more confident by holding your teeth in place and providing stability.

The Implant Retained Dentures Process

At Smiles & More, we are happy to advise on all denture solutions, including dental implants.

The fitting of implants will need to be completed by a qualified implant dentist while we focus on creating your bespoke replacement teeth.

We can recommend experienced, local practices all around the North West that can assist you. 

They require some special care. Be sure to brush and floss around the implant fixtures regularly to keep your gums healthy.

You should also see us regularly for check-ups and cleanings. With proper care, they can last for many years.

The Benefits

They offer a number of benefits over traditional ones.

  • Perhaps the most significant benefit is that they are much more stable and secure, making it easier to eat and speak without worry of the dentures slipping.
  • Implant retained dentures put less strain on the gums and jawbone, making them more comfortable to wear.
  • Another benefit of implant retained dentures is they can help to preserve the natural appearance of your smile.
