Dental Implant Dentures, Overdentures | Swissedent Dental Dentures Clinic in London, UK
Sometimes, having a 'Cosmetic Natural Looking' denture alone is not enough and you will need the help of implants for extra stability. Implants are tiny titanium rods, that replicate the natural root of a tooth, which is surgically placed into the jaw bone, once placed a Dentist will be able to monitor the healing of your implants for 6 months and provide a temporary denture whilst healing is taking place. Once healing is complete you can then have a Swissedent 'Cosmetic Natural Looking' implant denture.
A new denture is created to sit on top of the implants rather than the gums, which in turn gives you more security, stability and peace of mind whilst eating and talking, as the denture is held in via the implants, instead of relying on the bone and denture adhesives.
There are various options available for implant dentures, with removable implant dentures and fixed implant dentures. Implant dentures are dependent on patient suitability for implant placement and will require an Implant consultation, to asses suitability, bone levels etc.
Dental Implant Retained Removable Dentures:
This type of implant denture is removable and allows you to remove the denture in and out of the mouth and is used with clip type attachments that clip into the implants placed in the mouth, similar to that of a stud button on a jacket. The type of attachments used, depends on the type of implant placed. Three main type of attachments are locator, ball and clip.
With removable implant dentures, two or more implants are surgically placed into the jaw, top or bottom and sometimes both. Once the implants are placed, a implant denture is made with the chosen attachment to clip into the implants placed in the mouth and instantly creates a stable and secure denture. The dentures can be removed and cleaned with ease and clips back into place.
