Denture Stabilisation with Dental Implants in York
Denture stabilisation treatment with Dental Implants can be used to resolve problems caused by loose fitting dentures.
When the dentures become loose, they can irritate the gums and cause soreness and patients may also worry that their dentures may slip when they are eating.
Denture stabilisation involves using dental implants to anchor the denture. Dental implants are small titanium screws, which are placed in the jaw bone acting to replace the root of the missing tooth. The implant will then start to integrate into the bone tissue and can then be attached to a dental crown or dental bridge or a denture.
What are the benefits of denture stabilisation with dental implants?
Denture stabilisation is beneficial for several reasons. Firstly, the dental implants provide optimum anchorage and support for the dentures, meaning that there is no risk of the denture coming loose. Implant-retained dentures give patients peace of mind and the ability to eat in public without worrying about the denture slipping or coming loose. The risk of irritation caused by poorly fitting dentures is also minimized.
Denture stabilisation is also beneficial because it increases the power of the bite, which enables patients to enjoy a wider range of foods. Dental implants also help to reduce further ongoing bone loss in the jaw.
