Implant-retained dentures

Historically, if you had lost all or most of your teeth, the only option was to have a traditional unsecured denture. Thankfully, those days are gone.

If you find wearing dentures uncomfortable, painful or just plain unreliable you will appreciate the stability and comfort of having a natural-looking denture that is firmly attached to around two to four dental implants.

This is called an implant-retained denture and can be useful if you have lots of missing teeth or no teeth at all. Your dentures can still be removed for cleaning, but will stay put once in place allowing you to laugh and eat with impunity.

The benefits of implant-retained dentures

There are many reasons why people lose their teeth but doing so often has a detrimental impact on their quality of life. An implant-retained denture can restore self-esteem, confidence and function.

Our top tips for looking after your dental implants

Caring for your investment is important to achieve the best long-lasting results and to ensure your new teeth always look their best.

“At Leyland Implants, we advise our patients to brush their teeth as normal as soon as possible with a soft-bristled brush after implant placement, but to avoid the surgery area for the first week. Brushing will prevent infection and stimulate tissue healing.”

“On a daily basis, it’s important to use special brushes designed to reach the area where your implants meet your gums, as well as interdental brushes and floss to clean between your teeth and your new implant tooth, bridge or denture.”

“We highly encourage our patients to attend regular annual hygiene appointments, so our team of highly trained therapists can give your teeth some extra care and a thorough professional clean.”
