At one time, if you had lost all or most of your teeth, the only option was to have a denture. Thankfully, those days are gone!
If you find you cannot get on with dentures, find them wobbly, uncomfortable or embarrassing, it is possible to have a natural-looking denture that is firmly attached to around six dental implants.
This is called an implant-retained denture and can be useful if you have lots of missing teeth or no teeth at all. Your dentures can still be removed for cleaning, but will stay put once in place.
As well as securing your denture, teeth implants can also help improve your appearance. When teeth are lost the bone that held them in your jaw will shrink. Placement of dental implants can preserve this bone, maintaining the shape and structure of the lips and cheeks preventing the ageing ‘caved in’ look of older people with dentures.
