What are implant secured dentures?
Dentures can be uncomfortable, irritating and embarrassing. Many people struggle to chew comfortably and even say that their self-confidence has been undermined by wearing a denture.
The implants are titanium screws placed into the jaw, to replace original roots. Depending on the treatment, you may need between four and eight implants to secure each denture in place. It’s a straightforward process which can be completed under local anaesthetic. The implants will need 3 to 6 months to heal and bond with your jaw bone to provide a solid support for your replacement tooth.
Temporary replacement teeth are usually fitted at the same time as your implant placement, which will stay in place until the final restoration appointment.
