If your dentures are loose or poorly fitted, your ability to eat and speak may be impaired. Owing to developments in dentistry, there is now a process by which dental implants can be used to secure a denture to the jaw.
This therapy, known as implant overdentures or denture stabilisation, offers denture-wearing patients a more permanent answer and can considerably enhance their quality of life. You will once again be able to enjoy your favourite foods and smile with confidence, knowing that your dentures will remain in place.
Here’s how it operates:
For the implants to be implanted in your jaw, surgery will be required.
After the implants have fused with the bone and surrounding tissues over a length of time, your dentures are attached to the implants using a variety of specialised attachments.
This indicates that your dentures can still be removed for cleaning, but once in place, they will remain in place.
