Get Rid of Loose Dentures and Enjoy the Comfort of Implant-retained Dentures

Losing some teeth can make it difficult to do things you used to enjoy, such as eating and smiling comfortably. You may not be sure about what to do about it, or you may not want to have to wear traditional dentures that are constantly slipping and sliding around in your mouth.

Missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious and can even lead to further complications. It may compromise your dental health or cause problems with eating and speaking. However, you may think about getting dentures to restore your teeth. However, regular dentures can be a pain to get used to, and they often feel loose and uncomfortable.

An implant-retained denture is a great solution for you. Your dentist will place dental implants in your gums to provide stability and support for your denture. You’ll never have to worry about your dentures slipping or moving around in your mouth again. Plus, our friendly Armadale dentist will make sure that you are comfortable and satisfied with your new smile.

Problems that Implant-Retained Dentures Are Good For

If you have a lot of missing teeth on one side of your mouth or dental arch, implant-retained dentures may be the best option for you. These dentures are held in place by titanium implants.
Several Missing Teeth or Cases of Edentulism:
This is a prevalent problem that many individuals face every day and is a common reason reported by most of our patients. Implant-retained dentures work by inserting a few implant posts in your jawbone to support the removable denture.
Biting and Chewing Problems:
When you have a few missing teeth, there are foods that you can’t chew or even bite properly. Typically, your dentist can advise you to wear conventional dentures. However, sometimes they are not enough to support your teeth, gums, and jawbone. Fortunately, implant-retained dentures can now offer more stability and avoid the long-term consequences of tooth loss.
Tooth Decay:
Severe tooth decay is a result of plaque buildup between your gums and teeth. Eventually, this problem can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. Thus, there is a need to replace the damaged teeth and implant-retained dentures are a great option.
Speech Difficulties:
They are beneficial to individuals who experience difficulties with speaking properly. Since traditional dentures are often prone to slipping or loosening, with implant dentures they are securely placed in the jawbone.

What You Need To Know

FAQ About Our Dental Clinic In Armadale

We understand that you may have questions when seeing a new dentist for the first time. If your concern isn’t addressed
below, please feel free to contact our practice. One of our friendly team members will be happy to assist you.

Denture users can benefit from implant-retained dentures. We generally recommend a couple of implants for our patients who have had extensive tooth loss to help stabilise and tighten their removable dentures. The dentures we design for you fit perfectly and have excellent suction.

Other things to look at are whether you have enough bone structure, can keep up with dental hygiene, and are in good overall health. Hence, careful examination is required to determine your eligibility.

If you have weakened bone, your dentist can recommend additional dental procedures to make implant-retained dentures work for you. If necessary, we can suggest other treatment options.

Conventional dentures

Pros

  • Traditional dentures can restore some function to your bite and chewing.
  • They may appear to be more affordable than other tooth replacement alternatives.
  • The treatment process of regular dentures is much simpler than that of implant-retained dentures. It is less-invasive and no recovery period is required.
  • Since this type of restorative treatment is non-invasive, no oral surgery is required. The dentist just need to take impressions of your teeth and mouth.

Cons

  • Traditional dentures will have to be replaced regularly as the acrylic deteriorates and your bone structure changes. Excessive wear can cause your jaw to shrink away, causing the prosthesis to feel loose or irritate you.
  • Dentures lie on top of the gums and are kept in place by messy adhesives, which can cause them to slip when the patient eats or speaks. When they slip, the rubbing motion can cause irritation and sores.
  • They do not promote bone growth in the same manner that an implant denture does. Without stimulation, your bone structure may wear down. This can result in changes in your face structure and denture fit.

Implant-retained dentures

Pros

  • Implant-retained dentures have a considerably longer lifespan and will not need to be replaced as often. The implants can last a lifetime with proper maintenance, but the denture will eventually need to be replaced. This is because of normal wear and tear over time.
  • Implant dentures can promote bone health. Since they are considered artificial tooth roots, they offer stimulation that was once lost when your tooth fell out.
  • The dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone. Which encourages bone growth and prevents deterioration.
  • The dentures are removable, which makes them easy to maintain, clean, and remove before going to sleep every night.
  • Wearing implant-retained dentures has more stability and comfort since they are not prone to slipping. It means no more sore spots.

Cons

  • They are an expensive option to replace teeth.
  • The implant treatment involves minor oral surgery to insert a titanium post into your jawbone.
  • Extensive healing time after implant surgery is required before receiving your permanent denture. Typically, this process may take six months, but it depends on your case.
  • Your initial appointment with Prospect Road Dental is the process of developing digital planning. We use 3D imaging to get a precise look at your teeth, gums, and other important structures in your mouth.
  • Once, treatment planning is done. The first surgery is when the actual implant is placed into your jawbone, which is done under general anaesthesia. The dentist will make a small incision in your gums and then drill a hole in the exposed bone. Following that, they will insert the implant post and close the incision with stitches. The procedure is repeated for each required implant. After the procedure, the dentist will advise you to allow three to six months of recovery time. Throughout this period, the implant will merge with the jawbone, a process called osseointegration.
  • Your Armadale dentist will open up the gums in the second surgery to expose the heads of the implants that will support the dentures. Once those are exposed, a cap is placed over top to help with healing. Replacements are made for these caps after 10 to 14 days. A new impression is taken to make your dentures.
  • In the final process, your false teeth or dentures will be permanently fixed in place if no last-minute changes are required.

Someone who has worn traditional dentures for a long period of time may be able to make the transition to implant-supported dentures.

An important thing to consider in switching is that if you have been missing natural teeth for a long time, your dentist may evaluate if you need a bone graft before receiving dental implants. A bone graft is used to increase the volume of the jawbone so that it can serve as a stable foundation for your dental implants.

  • Remove your denture and gently clean it with a denture brush and toothpaste.
  • Brush your implants at least once a day with a toothbrush and toothpaste. It is also important to clean the area around the attachments and the gums. Plaque can build up on implants just like it does on teeth, and they can still become infected with gum disease.
  • It is best not to sleep with implant-retained dentures in your mouth, as you would with conventional dentures. So, remove them at night to give rest to your gum tissue. Then, soak them in a denture solution. You can ask the dentist for any recommended products.
  • Maintain your oral hygiene routine and dental visits to our office at least every 6 months. At these appointments, we will check your mouth, your denture, your implants, and your o-rings.

In Australia, patients can expect to pay between $15,000 and $18,000 for a full arch of implant-retained dentures. Considering the procedure involved. We know that this is a significant price difference from traditional dentures. However, you should keep in mind that this is a long-term and life-changing teeth replacement.
