If you’re fed up with your loose or ill-fitting dentures causing you embarrassment, it might be time to invest in dental implants. These are titanium metal rods which are anchored into your jaw onto which your dentures can be supported.
The process of stabilising your dentures using dental implants to anchor them down is known as denture stabilisation and it can be used to make your dentures more secure, so you can eat, drink and speak with confidence. You no longer have to worry about your loose dentures slipping out. This type of treatment can also restore your ability to chew and bite and can even improve your oral function when you speak. All of these things will bring you great peace of mind, especially when interacting in social occasions.
If you’re looking for implant in Dublin, Portobello Dental Clinic can help. Our dental team can assess your suitability for implants by determining whether there is enough bone in your jaw to have them fitted. We will also look at the health of your gums and also your general health, to establish whether implants are an option for you.
To have your dentures stabilised, a precise surgical procedure will be performed in the dental practice. Your dentist will place the implant using specialist techniques and instruments, which will ensure a minimally invasive procedure. Once the gum tissue is sutured, the area is left to heal which can take approximately a month. When it’s fully healed, the dentist will be able to attach your new dentures.
It’s possible to have both removed and fixed dentures supported with dental implants, and only a few dental implants are needed to secure them in place.
