Implants can be embedded into the jaw in order to hold dentures firmly in place, relieving you of the worry of your denture moving, feeling uncomfortable or rubbing against the gums.
Traditional dentures sit on top of the gums and are helped to stay in place with denture adhesive. While dentures help improve function and appearance because they are a removable device they are not infallible and can cause the wearer a number of problems.
At The Walden Dental Clinic not only will we make sure that your traditional dentures fit well and snugly, but if you are suitable, we can also offer implants to ensure you never have to worry about your denture moving or coming out when you don’t want it to.
This treatment entails a number of implants being planted into the jawbone. A denture appliance will be created for you that has special clips at the base which will attach to the implants for a stable and firm hold. There are variations of implant retained dentures that we will discuss with you during your consultation.
Implant retained dentures are more suited to the lower jaw, as dentures worn in replacement of the lower teeth are often prone to slipping.
