Full Mouth Implant Options
Are you tired of living with loose dentures and struggling to eat and speak? Restore your smile and your confidence with implants denture.
Implant dentures provide a natural-looking, long-term solution for missing teeth. They are more comfortable and secure than conventional dentures, so you won’t have to worry about sore spots or denture movement. Dental implants will also restore your chewing ability, so you can have the freedom to eat whatever you like.
Advantages of Implant-Supported Dentures (Overdentures)
- An aesthetic and long-term solution
- Optimal comfort and function
- No need for denture adhesives
- Less gum irritation
- Fixed to the gums while speaking and chewing
- Help maintain bone level
- The more natural overall appearance
Dental implants are placed in the jawbone to anchor your denture in place. Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots, providing stability and helping to maintain bone level. With conventional dentures, the bone will resorb, or shrink over time, which can cause the face to have a sunken look.
Types of Implant Retained Solutions
- Ball or locator-attached implant denture
- Bar-attached implant denture
- Screw-retained implant bridge
- Implant-supported full arch bridge/denture (All-on-4, All-on-6)
At Green Lane Dental Centre (South East London Dentist),we offer several implant-retained options to meet your needs. Dental implant prostheses can be fixed or removable. Fixed or secure implant dentures provide the best stability and chewing function. Once treatment is complete, you will have a full set of natural-looking teeth that function much as your teeth would.
We also provide same-day implant dentures, called All-on-4 or All-on-6 implants. These can replace all the upper or lower jaw teeth, supporting them on four or six implants. This technique is an immediate solution, and you will leave the surgery with a full set of teeth.
Removable implant dentures are supported either by Snap-On attachments called locators or by a bar for added stability. The entire process of getting dental implants takes about 6 to 8 months. No matter which type of denture you choose, you can get a temporary solution so you won’t be without teeth for an extended period of time.
