Are you suffering of loose or ill fitting Full or Partial Dentures? Contact our Sydney dental clinic on (02) 8068 2109 to find out how dental Implants can be used to stabilize and secure your dentures.
For patients with multiple teeth or all their teeth missing, an option to replace those missing teeth is a partial or full denture. In some cases, patient’s find these ill fitting, uncomfortable or loose.
Advents in dental technology mean that we can now secure a denture or a new set of teeth to your jaw with as few as only two dental implants. You have the flexibility of keeping the dentures removable, where you can take them out at home to clean and place them in the mouth again, but with the implant connection they will be very stable and secure.
You also have the option of fixing the dentures to the jaw permanently with 4 or more implants, Find out more about this treatment option here.
IMPLANT RETAINED OVERDENTURES
An implant retained Overdenture is a great option for those patients experiencing a loose upper or lower full denture. The McGill Consensus concluded that placing only 2 implants on the lower jaw can greatly improve the stability of the removable lower full denture and increase patient satisfaction.
This allows the patients:
- Improved Chewing Capacity
- More Stability of their denture
- Improved Speech
- Increased Confidence
- Flexibility of being able to remove dentures at home when needed
- Very affordable treatment
LOCATOR ATTACHMENT – THE SIMPLE SOLUTION
Easy to insert and remove, the Locator Attachments we use are designed with customized levels of retention and a low profile. Most importantly, it’s patented ability to pivot adds resiliency and stability against the high chewing forces in the mouth. This allows it to be superior to other attachment systems such as ball abutments and hader bars.
IMPLANT SUPPORTED OVERDENTURES
For those patients looking to maximise the support of their denture but still prefer to have the dentures removable, an Implant-Supported Overdenture is the option for them.
In this case, approximately 4 implants are placed and the Locators can be used in conjunction with a custom fabricated bar. The Bar adds further support to the denture allowing stability both at the front and the back of the mouth. The Locators are incorporated into the custom bar.
