A reliable solution to your denture problems
The challenge of ill-fitting dentures
We understand how challenging and problematic denture problems can be. Typically, loose dentures can cause problems when you chew, when you speak or even when you smile. Patients we help have often been unhappy with the frequent use of adhesives or denture glue, or told us stories of embarrassing situations when their dentures have fallen out or moved at social events. If this sounds like you, it’s time to speak to our experienced implant dentists here at Complete, to look into the cost effective and sustainable solution of denture stabilisation with implants.
How do we stabilise your dentures with implants?
We can stabilise your current loose or problematic dentures using “clip-on” implants, or if your dentures are old or worn down, we can make you new implant stabilised dentures with optimal aesthetics and function.
When your dentures are stabilised by implants, you can use them reliably to eat, smile and socialise, without those embarrassing denture moments. With “Locator dentures”, “clip-on dentures” or “implant dentures”, we use implants secured permanently in the jaw, to act as “click-on” or retention points for your dentures. You can still click them out for cleaning, but click them in for secure, stable and reliable function. This prevents movement during eating, speaking, sore spots, or any need for denture glues. At our clinic, the implants are placed usually in a single surgery in the comfort of sedation.
Lower vs. Upper Jaw Implant Dentures
Lower full dentures can be a nightmare for many patients, as they can have very poor retention, especially in cases of resorted or shrunken jaw. But they can’t be reliably stabilised with as few as two (2) implants, even in cases of limited jaw bone - a relatively simple and life-changing treatment for many patients. For upper full dentures, we may often recommend more than the basic two implants to give good long term outcomes.
Permanent implants for even more stability
Although implants stabilising dentures is reliable and effective, many patients we see even choose to get rid of their dentures altogether, replacing them with non-removable, permanent new implant teeth without any plates. You may have heard of our All-On-4 and the All-On-4-Plus methods, which are some of the common permanent implant solutions we offer. These achieve immediate non-removable permanent new teeth without denture flanges or plates. In most cases we perform this as just one surgery, under local anaesthetic or the added comfort of sedation dentistry - even in most cases of limited jaw bone or poor jaw bone quality.
