Northern Rivers Denture Clinic implantYou may find that wearing unsecured dentures can be painful, inconvenient and awkward. Such dentures make it difficult to chew a variety of foods, which can stop you from eating many of the foods you once enjoyed. Ill-fitting dentures are suffered by too many people. In the past, this was considered something you “had to put up with”. Now there’s a safe and lasting solution: Implant Retained Dentures, allowing you to eat well, receiving optimal nutrition from a wider variety of foods, and feel more comfortable and confident.

Implant Retained Dentures, or Implant Over-dentures are a convenient solution to stabilise your dentures. They are specifically made to clip onto (usually) just two dental implants, which would be permanently implanted in your mouth by your oral surgeon.

The procedure for dental implants

When this procedure is performed, usually two or more implants are placed towards the front of the jaw, and a denture is made to clip onto these implants. The result is a highly stabilised denture that works as it was intended, giving an end to pain and discomfort, but leading to improved speech, improved health and all-round confidence.


Benefits of implant retained dentures

  • Implants are held in place more securely and overall, are more reliable than traditional dentures.
  • Implant dentures are also more comfortable for the wearer. Most people report they don’t even feel like they have dentures in.
  • Implant retained dentures also prevent the wearer from experiencing sore spots and pressure points commonly associated with removable dentures.
  • Wearing implanted dentures prevents further bone loss that occurs from missing teeth. This also maintains facial structure, and keeps your mouth healthier.

Implant Retained Dentures are generally made for people who can’t wear normal dentures because they have flat ridges or are unable to keep their dentures in place due to massive shrinkage of gums and bone loss.
