Bridges vs implants | Traditional dentures vs implants | Are implants better than the alternative?

Make your dentures more secure and permanent with implants. Do you have traditional dentures that are wobbly or poorly fitted?

If so, don’t worry; there are many dental solutions to help.

The Perfect Smile has many treatment options that target gaps to restore function and aesthetics for patients with one or more missing teeth.

However, when they are ill-fitted, they become loose and move over time, which can cause a wealth of oral health problems and issues.

The Problem With Loose Dentures

Our denture-wearing patients often complain that their removable dentures cause discomfort and embarrassment daily.

As restorative dentists, we know the issue that loose dentures can cause.

Dentures can cause gum irritations and mouth infections when feeling separate from your mouth.

They can also make it increasingly difficult to eat naturally and speak.

On top of this, prolonged wearing of these types of dentures can cause the bone in the jaw to shrink; this happens when teeth are not correctly replaced.

Leading cosmetic and restorative dentists, The Perfect Smile aims to help our patients feel 100% comfortable and ensure their teeth are strong and healthy.

Stabilise Dentures With Implants

Implants can fixate and support dentures and bridgework.

As an alternative to removable dentures, fixed dentures are held in place with dental implants to stabilise the treatment and allow the patient to have a more straightforward oral function.

Additionally, implant-supported dentures eradicate the problems of dentures gradually becoming loose.

Traditional dentures:

  • Weakens bone in the jaw
  • A removable device
  • Must be removed to clean and sleep
  • It takes a few weeks
  • Makes eating difficult

Innovative implants

  • Promotes bone growth and robust oral health
  • Requires a short, pain-free surgical procedure
  • Works and operates just like a regular tooth
  •  A few months of healing is necessary for the titanium screw to fuse successfully to the bone.
  •  It makes speaking and chewing easy.

How Do Implants Stabilise Dentures?

In the procedure, titanium screws (implants) with integrated ball-tops are inserted into the jaw, fusing into the bone.

The procedure typically takes about an hour and can be done under local anaesthesia.

Your existing denture is modified to sit comfortably over the implants during the healing phase.

Discomfort during or proceeding with the procedure is usually minor.

Your dentist can prescribe medication to alleviate pain and suggest a modified diet during the initial healing phase.

After the implants have healed, your denture is modified to snap onto the ball-tops.

The denture will be secure until you remove it for cleaning.

Apply upward pressure to the front of the denture with your thumbs to unseat the denture.
