Dental Implant Retained Denture

Most industrialised countries are experiencing a rapid decline in edentulous patients (those with no teeth). However, tooth loss increases with age, so the number of edentulous patients within society will continue to increase for several decades because of the increase in average life expectancy.

Total tooth loss is a serious life event. Many patients report that they subsequently experience lowered self-confidence and poor self-image. Complete dentures have been the traditional standard of care for edentulous patients for more than a century. Many denture wearers are able to wear an upper complete denture without problems but most struggle to eat with the complete lower denture because of its inherent mobility. In the past few decades, culture changes have resulted in heightened patient expectations. Many ‘older’ patients now find it unacceptable to consider having conventional complete dentures due to inferior comfort and function

For a cost-effective way of replacing many missing teeth, dentures can be held securely in place with implants, providing a great improvement from traditional removable dentures.

  • No need for denture adhesives, pastes, sticky gum or powders.
  • Implants help to maintain your facial structures by preserving the remaining bone in your jaws.
  • Minimises wrinkles around the mouth by restoring lost lip-support
  • Markedly improves your ability to chew – you can eat whatever you want and enjoy your food again.
  • Secure and comfortable – no more embarrassing moments caused by loose dentures!

A lower denture may only need two conventional implants to give a completely life-changing transformation to your ability to chew foods, and smile with confidence. Upper dentures tend to need more implants due to the effects of gravity.

There are two types of implant-supported dentures: bar-retained and locator-retained. In both cases, the denture will be made of an acrylic base that will look like gums. Porcelain or acrylic teeth that look like natural teeth are attached to the base.

Bar-retained dentures

A thin metal bar that follows the curve of your jaw is attached to two to six implants that have been placed in your jawbone. Clips or other types of attachments are fitted to the bar, the denture or both. The denture fits over the bar and is securely clipped into place by the attachments.

Ball or Stud Retained Dentures

Each implant in the jawbone holds a metal attachment that fits into another attachment on the denture. In most cases, the attachments on the implants are ball-shaped ("male" attachments), and they fit into sockets ("female" attachments) on the denture. In some cases, the denture holds the male attachments and the implants hold the female ones.

"My experience with Rock dates back to 6th April 2010. Since that time I have very much appreciated improved dental health due in my humble opinion to the regular (3/6 month) treatments by my dentist and very professional hygienist".

"Recently, I have had a new upper denture fitted as it was giving me trouble beforehand. In the event, when the new denture was fitted , I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly and without endless modifications, that it had become comfortable. That experience to me was confirmation that my overall dental health was in safe hands. Thanks very much"

Please tell us about your experience with us...

"Having had bad dental experiences since a child, I was nervous about every visiting a dentist again. Having seen an advert 'Nervous Patients Welcome' I plucked up the courage and called. Once I managed to get myself to the surgery Dr Anoup and his team worked hard to provide 1-2-1 comfort and help me to relax. It took a number of visits before I felt at ease as I was embarrassed by the look and condition of my teeth but now I no longer dread my dental visit. After intrusive work with implants I smile with confidents as much as possible. So glad I visited Rock".
