Implant-retained dentures

Tired of loose dentures? Regain confidence with implant-secured smiles

Missing all your teeth or struggling with loose, uncomfortable dentures? There’s a better way! Here at Hitchin Dental Care, we offer implant-retained dentures, a revolutionary solution that can transform your smile and life.

Implant-retained dentures are dentures that snap or clip onto surgically placed implants in your jawbone. Unlike traditional dentures that rely on adhesives and suction, implant-retained dentures offer increased stability and security. This translates to several benefits, including worry-free eating, speaking, and smiling, improved chewing ability and a more natural-looking smile.

What does getting implant-retained dentures involve?

  • Consultation & planning: During your initial consultation, we will assess your jawbone health and discuss your goals. X-rays and scans will determine the best placement for the implants.
  • Implant placement: Tiny titanium implants are surgically placed into your jawbone. This outpatient procedure is typically performed with local anaesthesia or sedation.
  • Healing & bone fusion: Over the next few months, your jawbone will heal and fuse with the implants, creating a strong foundation for your dentures.
  • Denture creation: While your implants heal, a customised denture will be created to fit your mouth and smile perfectly.
  • Attachment & adjustments: Once healed, the denture will be attached to the implants using special connectors, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit.

What are the benefits of implant-retained dentures?

Implant-retained dentures offer a multitude of advantages over traditional dentures, including:

  • Eating: Enjoy your favourite foods with confidence, and no more worrying about slipping dentures.
  • Speaking: Have the ability to speak more clearly, and without the fear of your dentures moving.
  • Smiling: Smile freely without embarrassment, knowing your dentures are securely in place.
  • Stability: Dental implants act as anchors, keeping your dentures firmly in place for a worry-free experience.
  • Function: Enjoy a natural bite and better chewing ability, allowing you to savour all your favourite foods.
  • Facial structure support: Implants help prevent bone loss in your jaw, maintaining a more youthful facial appearance.
  • Enhanced quality of life: Speak with confidence, and enjoy a renewed sense of freedom when socialising and eating.
  • Comfort & security: Implant-retained dentures eliminate the discomfort and irritation often associated with traditional dentures.

After the fitting

After your implant-retained dentures are fitted, you can expect a period of adjustment. Your mouth and tongue will need to adapt to the new sensation of secure teeth. Speaking and eating may feel slightly different at first. However, we will provide you with care instructions and answer any questions you have. With a little practice, you’ll be enjoying the full benefits of your implant-retained dentures in no time.

A solution for everyone

Even if you’ve been missing teeth for a long time and have experienced bone loss, implant-retained dentures may still be an option. We can strategically place a few implants to provide a secure foundation for your dentures.
