Securing Dentures Firmly in Place
Fed up with loose dentures? Are your dentures ‘floating’ around your mouth? Are your dentures uncomfortable?
At Loughborough Dental & Implant Centre we use dental implants as a simple and cost effective way to secure dentures firmly in place.
Most people find that losing their teeth is a very distressing experience. There will often be some discomfort involved and combined with the psychological effects of losing their complete dentition, patients can sometimes feel quite traumatised.
Multiple or full tooth loss, no matter what the age, can limit a person’s experience of life, the enjoyment of food and everyday things that we all take for granted.
Whilst dentures can be a great solution for missing teeth, many patients find traditional dentures bulky and embarrassing, causing frustrating problems with speech and function.
In addition, denture wearers will lose bone volume over time (your jaw bone is only present to hold your teeth in place, once tooth loss has occurred, bone volume will start to shrink away) which may lead to a change in facial form as cheeks shrink and hollow due to a lack of soft tissue support.
Implant ‘overdentures’ are a great alternative to traditional dentures
At Loughborough Dental & Implant Centre, we use dental implants to simply and securely fasten your dentures in place. This treatment is known as an ‘overdenture’ and is intended for those patients seeking an affordable alternative to a full implant rehabilitation.
Many patients use our 0% finance facility to ensure to spread the cost of overdentures
What are ‘overdentures’?
This is where we use a series of 4-6 dental implants placed in strategic positions in your jaw which enable us to fix removable dentures snugly into place using either ‘press-stud’ type attachments or a metal bar. Overdentures become strong & stable and are a very comfortable alternative to traditional removable dentures.
Are ‘overdentures’ suitable for me?
If you have answered ‘Yes’ to three or more of these questions, then you are suitable for overdentures
