Patients who have been wearing dentures for a long period of time often find them uncomfortable, especially when speaking or chewing. Moreover, they can cause mouth sores and become loose over time, thus requiring replacement every so often.
If youre wearing dentures and hate them, but still think they are your only option, we have news. At Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic in Farnham, dentures are stabilised with dental implants for a more comfortable and functional smile. Implant-supported dentures are cost-effective and stable, combining the best aspects of both treatments.
Understanding dental implants
Modern dental implants have gone through many changes and improvements and they are more versatile than ever. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, which are surgically inserted into the jawbone. They are made of titanium, a body-friendly metal, so they integrate completely with the bone tissue and actually encourage new bone to grow and mesh around them. This results in them being firmly locked in place. Dental implants can support different types of restorations such as single crowns, bridges or dentures.
Attaching your dentures securely
Farnham dental implants are long-lasting and provide a secure attachment for your denture, which is made to look and function just like your natural teeth. Our experienced dentists will place up to 4 dental implants at the front of the jaw and use special attachments to fasten each implant to your denture. Your denture can still be removed for cleaning, but when you wear it will always remain secure and stable. This way, you wont need to use denture adhesives anymore.
Unlike conventional dentures, implant-supported dentures do not need to be removed at night. More importantly, dentures stabilised with dental implants will restore your biting and chewing ability, making it possible to enjoy a wide array of foods. With implant-supported dentures you will also enjoy your natural looking smile, improved self-esteem and enhanced oral hygiene.
If you are ready for a better lifestyle that derives from a healthy smile, call Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic to schedule a consultation today. Our experienced dentists will examine your teeth and determine whether implant-supported dentures in Farnham are the right option for you.
