Implant Retained Dentures in Alton
Implants » Dental Implants
Dental implants offer a permanent solution for your missing teeth. A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root and commonly it is screw or cylinder shaped.
Each implant is placed into a socket carefully drilled at the precise location of the intended tooth. Often the implant can be placed at the same time as removal of the tooth all on the same day.
Implant Retained Dentures
Good news for denture wearers !
You can now use dental implants to secure your dentures firmly without the need for sticky adhesives ! No more embarrasing moments where your denture falls down and certainly you will be able to enjoy the food that you eat without concerns of a denture that 'rocks' in your mouth.
Your options are to have either 2 conventional implants or 4 Mini Implants. Your implant surgeon will discuss both options and advise you on which option is best with regards to the level of bone in your mouth.
On the day of implant placement, expect only 10 to 15 minutes time for the actual implant surgery treament for each jaw. Following this, we will need 45 minutes to modify your denture to fit your new implants
** Please do note that in some instances, your implant surgeon may recomment that you do not use your denture immediately. This is usually to allow some time for initial bony healing to take place.
