Implant-Retained Dentures

Implant-retained dentures use implants instead of suction and adhesives to hold your dentures in place.

How many implants do I need?

Usually, your dentist will need to use at least 2 implants per arch, along with the support attachments such as a small set of studs or a bar.

Are implant-retained dentures an option if I already wear dentures?

If you are a suitable candidate for implants, implant-retained dentures are definitely an option even if you already wear dentures.

How long do I have to wait before my implant-retained dentures can be used?

The exact amount of time necessary to fit your implant-retained dentures varies from patient to patient. Sometimes your dentist can fit them properly in a single visit.

The dentist will provide you with a temporary set of dentures to use immediately after inserting the implants.

How do I care for my implant-retained dentures?

Your dentures slide over and slot into place over the implants. For cleaning, just remove the dentures and place them over night in an anti-bacterial cleaning solution.

COVID-19 update

Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.

Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.

From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.

Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.

We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.

This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
