Implant-Retained Denture Treatment in Leeds
At our stylish practice in Leeds, we’re proud to provide the revolutionary treatment that is implant-retained dentures. If you have missing teeth and are tired of worrying about loose dentures, let us help.
What are implant-retained dentures? —
If you are missing two or more teeth, multiple dental implants can be an excellent treatment option to restore your smile and oral function.
Implant-retained dentures are a cutting-edge restoration treatment that combines the benefits of dental implants with the convenience of dentures. Unlike traditional dentures, which rely on adhesive material and natural suction to stay in place, implant-retained dentures are secured firmly to implants surgically placed into the jawbone.
These dental implants act as sturdy anchors, providing a strong foundation for the dentures to attach to. This effectively eliminates the common issues associated with traditional implants, such as slipping and discomfort. Implant-retained dentures can be used to replace either a full arch of missing teeth (full-arch implant dentures) or a section of missing teeth (partial-arch implant dentures). They can be placed on the upper or lower jaw.
The benefits of implant-retained dentures —
Enhanced stability — Dental implants provide exceptional stability, ensuring that your dentures stay securely in place, allowing you to speak, eat and laugh with confidence.
Preservation of bone health — Dental implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss that commonly occurs when teeth are missing, preserving your facial structure and appearance.
Comfortable — Implant-retained dentures eliminate the need for messy adhesives, and you won't experience the discomfort of rubbing against the gums that is often associated with traditional dentures.
Long-lasting solution — When properly cared for, implant-retained dentures can last for many years, making them a worthwhile investment in your oral health.
The implant-retained dentures treatment process
The implant-retained dentures treatment process involves several essential steps:
Consultation — We will first warmly welcome you to our Leeds practice for an initial consultation. During this appointment, our clinicians will assess your dental history, perform a thorough examination and discuss your goals.
Treatment plan — Based on the evaluation, we will create a personalised treatment plan, offering options like full-arch or partial-arch dentures.
Dental implant placement — Performed under local anaesthesia, one of our skilled clinicians will carefully place small titanium implant posts into the jawbone at precise positions. The number of implants will vary based on the type of dentures being supported and the available bone structure. The implants will eventually fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, providing a strong and stable foundation for your dentures.
Denture attachment — After the healing period, which usually takes a few months, the dental implants will have fully integrated with the jawbone. We will then create custom-made dentures that precisely fit the contours of your mouth. These dentures are designed for optimal comfort, aesthetics and functionality.
