How can I secure my loose dentures in my mouth?

 

At Smile Hub in Bayside Medical Centre one of our highly experienced dentists can discuss with your dental treatment options to increase the retention and stability of your loose or uncomfortable dentures.

 

Over time your gums recede and this can lead to loose and unstable dentures when you’re eating, talking and smiling. Lower dentures are usually more loose than upper dentures as the lower jaw moves when you’re talking and the tongue can dislodge your dentures.

 

Dental implants, which are small titanium screws placed directly into the jawbone can help stabilise your dentures. Dental implants help secure your denture in place and prevent them slipping out when you’re talking or eating.

 

At Smile Hub we use the world leading Straumann dental Implant system upon which your denture can fit snugly and securely. Please book online or call us today in Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Sutton, Dublin 13 so we can help you secure your dentures when eating, talking and smiling. Dental implants are placed with local anaesthetic and the procedure is pain-free. Your dentures can click onto the dental implants after they have healed into the bone 4 months following their placement. Dental implants increase the retention of your denture and eliminate any looseness or sore gum spots.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. At Smile Hub Dental Clinic, we design custom made Dental implants and dentures which look natural. Your denture will be stable, comfortable and secure when grasping on to your dental implants. At Smile Hub Dental Clinic your experienced dentist will carefully plan and comfortable implant which will match the shade of the denture and natural teeth.

How many implants does it take to hold a denture?

It depends on the placement of the implants and the level of bone density in your jaw, as few as two implants can be used to hold in a four-tooth bridge. For implant-supported full arch dentures, between four and 8 implants can be used.

How long do implant supported dentures last?

If implant supported dentures are cared for properly and the bone is kept healthy with the right nutrition and oral hygiene, implant supported denture can last between 10 and 20 years or longer.

How long after implants can you get dentures?

It is important that you wait between 3 and 6 months before you get dentures as the implants need time to fuse the jawbone. Once these implants are completely healed you can get dentures made to fit around the implants perfectly.

Can you wear dentures while implants are healing?

If you have had implants placed it is important to take out your dentures at night time to let the gums breath and continue to heal. If you are having most of your teeth replaced with implants you can wear dentures while they heal to be able to eat.
