Dentures are a traditional solution for replacing missing teeth, but if they don’t fit perfectly, they can slip or click when you eat or speak. Many denture wearers find they struggle to keep them secure, often experiencing sore spots and finding it hard to speak clearly and eat certain foods like steaks or apples. Sound familiar?

Although every effort is made to produce comfortable dentures, denture wearers may find that previously well-fitting dentures become loose. This is because over time bone is lost from the jaw due to lack of natural teeth. At Brickfields Dental Care in South-Woodham-Ferrers, our highly experienced implant surgeons, Dr Amit Patel and Dr TC Patel have had years of ‘fixing’ dentures and can help solve this problem by combining dentures with dental implants.

What are implant-retained dentures?

Implant-retained dentures fit securely onto dental implants, artificial tooth roots which are inserted into the jaw to replace the missing root and provide a strong foundation for your denture to be attached. Your implant-supported denture options at Brickfields Dental Care in Essex come in two forms.

  • Fixed – a non-removable solution that requires 4-6 implants to secure a fixed full mouth bridge, providing a highly stable and natural-looking result whilst giving you peace of mind, added comfort and confidence that there will be no movement.
  • Removable (overdenture) – a removable option that requires as few as two dental implants to provide additional stability to an upper or lower denture – giving our patients flexibility, security, comfort and a beautiful, natural-looking smile. They can still be removed for easy maintenance and cleaning, but you won’t need to use adhesives to keep it in place.
