Dentures can sometimes feel loose in your mouth which can cause you to feel uncomfortable or self-conscious. Implant dentures provide you with added security by physically connecting your dentures to the bone of your jaw. This additional security can provide you with a better quality of life than other traditional denture types by fully replacing the appearance and function of your natural teeth.
Do your dentures move when you eat or talk?
Implant dentures consist of an implant screw in your jaw that replaces the tooth root. The denture itself attaches to the implant, providing extra stability and functionality to the wearer. This additional security makes eating and talking easier and more comfortable by preventing the dentures from moving around the mouth.
Do your dentures require a lot of maintenance?
Implant dentures have fuss-free maintenance which means you don’t need to visit the dentist for cleaning. Although it is as important to clean your implant dentures as other denture types you can maintain them yourself at home. Simply follow our guide to cleaning your dentures to avoid common issues with cleanliness.
Do you need more facial support?
Implant dentures provide support for your facial muscles and stimulate bone growth, preventing bone atrophy. This added support creates a more natural and youthful look for the wearer increasing their comfort and confidence.
Do your current dentures cause you discomfort?
Ill-fitting dentures can be uncomfortable for the wearer. This can cause problems with daily tasks such as chewing and talking and can reduce the amount of time the wearer spends using the dentures. Implant dentures are customisable, meaning they can be created to fit precisely in the mouth.
