Implant Dentures

Loose dentures? Problems eating or speaking? Gum Sores? Find out more about implant retained dentures.

When a set of dentures is secured/retained with strategically placed implants, the procedure is known as implant retained denture.
In the past, losing all/multiple teeth meant a set of dentures. Full arch implants are a great option but tend to be the most expensive implant treatments.

For an affordable and effective option, why not consider an implant retained denture? Generally, up to 50% cheaper than full mouth implants, it’s a significant step-up from dentures without the expensive nature of full arch restorations.

As you would with your natural teeth, you can carry on cleaning the implant dentures as usual, once your dentist has fixed the dentures on your implants. Another added benefit to this is that you can enjoy eating all your favourite foods, even corn-on-the-cob!

What are the steps involved in implant dentures?
Consultation

Your consultation would last about 45 minutes with Raman Sandhu, Principal dentist and implantologist.  A bespoke treatment plan will be presented to you with all the options and a detailed breakdown of fees. 

Implant placement

Once we review the CBCT scan, we will then arrange a second appointment to place the implant. It’s a straightforward procedure performed under local anesthetic. For nervous patients, we also offer treatment under sedation.

Implant integration

The next step is to allow the implant to integrate with the jawbone. The integration can take up to 3 months, don’t worry, you will be provided with temporary teeth, so you don’t have to carry on with gaps in your mouth.

Crafting a cosmetic denture

At your next appointment, we review the integration of implant and start taking impressions for the denture. We prepare a cosmetic denture. You have the choice for choosing the shape of the teeth, shade and even shade of gums so you can have the smile you always wanted. Crafting a cosmetic denture is a very meticulous job so we may have to invite you back to trial the new denture. Once you are satisfied with the results, we fit the implant retained denture to give you the smile that you’ve always wanted.

Can you use my existing set of dentures?


The regular denture can not be used in this treatment for the long term. Conventional dentures are made to sit on the gums and are too delicate to be supported by implants.




How long does the procedure take?


The actual treatment time or in-chair time is less than 3 hours spread over four appointments; however, the integration of implants with jawbone can take anywhere between 3-6 months, depending on individual cases. It is worth noting that at no stage we leave you with gaps in the mouth. We provide a set of temporary teeth, or you can use your existing dentures during the integration period.




How many implants will I need?


Required number of implants is directly dependent on factors such as:
1) which jaw is being treated
2) eating, drinking and smoking habits
3) density of jawbone As an indication, the upper jaw would require a minimum of 4 implants, whereas a lower jaw may only need 2 implants.
