How Dental Implants Manchester Are Used To Secure Dentures

The versatility of dental implants Manchester are well documented, but did you know that they can help to prevent the age old problem of denture slippage? As a private dentist in Stockport we deal with all types of cosmetic and restorative dental problems, including denture repairs Manchester. The main concern we hear from denture wearers is that they are constantly worried that their dentures will fall out. This is where implant-retained dentures can help.

Before we delve into the why’s and wherefores of implant-retained dentures we need to look at why dentures slip…..

When teeth are missing the bone tissue that once supported the tooth root starts to wither away. Eventually over time the gum become thinner and starts to recede. As it does so the jaw changes shape as more and more bone tissue is lost. This is a natural part of the tooth loss process and will occur in every case.

Because conventional dentures are made to sit snugly on the gum line, they can’t halt the bone loss process. Therefore what was once a snug fit, is now a loose one as the jaw changes shape. This is when the problems of denture slippage can occur and often the only remedy is to have the dentures adjusted.

Because dental implants in Manchester are secured right into the jawbone, they trick the remaining bone tissue into thinking that they are tooth roots. As a result, the surrounding bone tissue merges and fuses with the titanium roots, thus halting the bone loss process.

That’s all well and good” I hear you say, “but how can this help denture wearers?”

The answer is simple… As an alternative to conventional dentures, 4-6 strategically placed implants support an entire framework for an over-denture which is then clipped into place. The end result is that you have an easily removable denture designed to stay firmly in position, so it won’t slip. Ultimately this means the likelihood of it falling out and needing denture repairs in Manchester are zero. As a result many wearers find their confidence levels restored as they are able to go about their normal daily lives without that constant worry of slippage.

If you’re fed up with your dentures and want an alternative then come and talk to your Private Dentist Stockport about the possibility of implant-retained dentures. Placing dental implants in Manchester is a pain-free, tried and tested process, and utilises state of the art technology to ensure a perfect fit every time.
