Implant Retained Dentures

At Dental Excellence, our highly experienced team offers implant retained dentures as a more secure and comfortable alternative to removable dentures.
Implant retained dentures work in a similar way to traditional dentures and can be used to replace a whole arch of teeth. Where they differ, is that instead of being held in place via an adhesive – they are held in place via implants. These implants are titanium screws designed to act as the new ‘root’ for the teeth. With prosthetic dentures clipped in place on top of them.

This requires coming into the practice several times to receive the treatment, over the course of four months or so. First, as with all implant treatments, it’s important to ensure the patient is a good candidate for the treatment. Which will be done via a CBCT Scan. This will help determine if there is enough healthy jawbone present to fuse with the implants.

Implant retained dentures offer patients one of the most secure and comfortable ways to replace multiple missing teeth. They are also highly durable and have a very natural-looking finish. They can even help enhance and improve a smile. While the process of receiving implant retained dentures can take a few months. But the patients invariably feel the wait is worth it. They are happier and more confident and comfortable with their new smile than ever before.

FAQ

The cost of dental implants can vary based on individual factors such as the number of implants needed, the complexity of the case, and any additional procedures required. At Dental Excellence, we believe in providing personalised care, and as such, we recommend scheduling a consultation to assess your specific needs. During this visit, our experienced team will conduct a thorough examination, discuss your treatment goals, and develop a customised treatment plan. This tailored approach allows us to provide an accurate estimate based on your unique situation. While the investment in dental implants may not have a one-size-fits-all price, we can assure you that the benefits of improved oral function, enhanced aesthetics, and long-term durability make it a valuable investment in your overall well-being. Our commitment is to offer transparent and comprehensive information during your consultation to help you make an informed decision about the worth of dental implants for your individual case.

The dental implant procedure is typically done under local anaesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort during the surgery. Some post-operative pain and swelling can be expected, but it’s manageable with prescribed or over-the-counter pain medications. The recovery process varies, but initial healing takes a few days, with more substantial integration over several months. Patients may need to follow a soft diet initially and maintain good oral hygiene. While discomfort is part of the process, the long-term benefits, including restored function and aesthetics, outweigh the temporary pain. Always consult with your dentist for personalised information based on your specific case.

Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. Long-term complications are rare but can include issues like infection, implant failure, or peri-implantitis (inflammation around the implant). Regular dental check-ups and excellent oral hygiene significantly reduce these risks. It’s crucial to follow your dentist’s instructions, attend routine appointments, and maintain good oral health practices to ensure the longevity of your dental implants.

While dental implants are generally safe and have a high success rate, like any surgical procedure, there are inherent risks. Common risks include infection, damage to surrounding structures, or implant failure. Certain factors, such as poor oral hygiene, smoking, or medical conditions like diabetes, can increase these risks. However, with proper screening, careful planning, and adherence to post-operative care, the risks are minimised. It’s essential to discuss your medical history, lifestyle factors, and any concerns with your dentist before undergoing the procedure to ensure it is a suitable and safe option for you.

Taking care of dental implants is crucial for their long-term success. The maintenance is similar to caring for natural teeth, but with a few specific considerations.

  • Oral Hygiene: Brush your teeth, including implants, at least twice a day with a soft-bristle toothbrush. Use dental floss or interdental brushes to clean between the implants and surrounding teeth.
  • Regular Check-ups: Schedule regular dental check-ups to monitor the health of your implants and address any potential issues early on.
  • Avoid Damaging Habits: Avoid habits like biting on hard objects, chewing ice, or using your teeth to open packages, as these can damage both natural teeth and implants.
  • Quit Smoking: If you smoke, consider quitting, as smoking can increase the risk of implant complications.

By maintaining good oral hygiene, being mindful of your habits, and staying consistent with dental check-ups, you can ensure the longevity and success of your dental implants.

Age alone is not a strict limitation for getting dental implants. The suitability for the procedure depends more on overall health and bone development. In younger patients, the jawbone should be fully developed, typically by late teens or early twenties. On the other hand, there’s no upper age limit for dental implants, as long as the individual is in good health.
Factors like bone density, general health, and lifestyle play a more significant role in determining candidacy. While it’s generally never too early or too late for dental implants, a thorough evaluation by a dentist or oral surgeon can provide personalised insights based on individual health and circumstances.

The feasibility of dental implants with underlying health conditions or medications depends on the specific situation. Many individuals with controlled health conditions can successfully undergo the procedure. However, it’s crucial to inform your dentist about all your health conditions and medications during the consultation.
Conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular issues, or autoimmune disorders may require special considerations. Medications, especially those affecting bone density or the immune system, can impact the implant process. Your dentist will assess your overall health, review your medical history, and consult with other healthcare providers if necessary to determine the best approach and ensure a safe and successful outcome.

Allergic reactions to materials used in dental implants are exceptionally rare. Titanium is the most common material used for implants, and it is generally well-tolerated by the body. Titanium has been extensively studied for its biocompatibility.
In extremely rare cases, an allergy to titanium may occur, but this is exceptionally uncommon. If you have concerns about potential allergies, it’s essential to discuss them with your dentist. They can explore alternative materials or conduct tests to ensure compatibility. Overall, the risk of allergic reactions to dental implant materials is minimal compared to the significant benefits they offer in terms of durability and biocompatibility.

Guided implant surgery

Guided implant surgery is a sophisticated procedure integrating advanced computerised imaging technology into the placement of dental implants. Prior to the surgery, high-resolution imaging captures a detailed three-dimensional representation of the patient’s oral anatomy. This serves as the foundation for meticulous preoperative planning, allowing precise determination of implant dimensions and optimal placement locations. During the surgery, this pre-established plan guides the implant placement process with a high degree of accuracy. This method enhances the overall predictability of the procedure, minimises potential complications, and contributes to expedited patient recovery. In essence, guided implant surgery represents a technologically refined and systematically executed approach to implant dentistry.
