Implant Retained Dentures

Need to replace your upper or lower jaw’s worth of missing teeth?

If you are looking for a full-arch rehabilitation, why not consider implant-retained dentures?

For a sturdy, secure, and natural-looking smile.

What are screw-in dentures?

When compared to their removable counterparts, implant-retained dentures allow the patient increased comfort, a restored bite, and movement-free smiles.

This is possible thanks to the fitting process, which generally uses between 2-4 dental implants per jaw to secure the prosthesis to the jaw (depending on patient needs and anatomy), while allowing for it to be easily removed for cleaning.

So called, screwed-in dentures then combine the benefits of full arch rehabilitation and the security of dental implants – providing the ultimate solution for mass tooth loss.

How is an implant upper denture fitted?

Whether you need an upper or lower jaw prosthesis, the process remains the same.

  1. Consultation and bespoke implant-retained denture treatment plan generation
    To assess your suitability, you will first need to come in for a consultation with one of our expert dentists.
    They will examine your mouth, discuss your needs, and take a CT scan to decide if it is the right treatment for you and create your bespoke treatment plan.
    This scan will then help your dentist decide where to place your dental implants if you decide to go ahead.
  2. Implant placement
    At this next appointment, your dental implants will be fitted.
    This will be completed in around 2-3 hours under a local anaesthetic to help you remain calm and relaxed. At this time, if you have any remaining natural teeth that are not needed, they will also be removed.
    The dental implant screws are fitted directly into the jawbone, providing a secure fixing for your implant-retained dentures to connect to in a few weeks.
    While your implants and mouth heal, you will be given thorough aftercare instructions and a temporary denture to wear, allowing you to eat as before and keep your mouth clean – helping them to heal.
  3. Implant bonding period
    Like prosthetic limbs for amputees, dental implants fuse with the bone they are implanted into and create a strong bond – in a process called osseointegration.
    This integration means that in as little as 3 months, the dental implant will be strongly fused to bone itself, making it impossible to remove the implant without fracturing the bone.
    You will continue to use your temporary teeth or removable denture at this time.
  4. Implant upper denture fitting
    Once healed, your dental implants can then be milled and clipped into place, securing and locking them into place.
    This is the most exciting day, as you will then see the culmination of your treatment and your new, permanent smile – allowing you to eat a full diet again and wave goodbye to denture adhesives forever.
