Dentists in Derby, Derbyshire 44 Main Street, Etwall, Derby, Derbyshire DE65 6LP
Implant-retained dentures use implants instead of suction and adhesives to hold your dentures in place.
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.
If you are a suitable candidate for implants, implant-retained dentures are definitely an option even if you already wear dentures.
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.
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.
