Implant Retained Dentures
in Newcastle & Gateshead

Are your dentures loose? Do they often fall out when you are eating or talking? The good news is that you don’t need to be in this situation and treatments exist which aim to stabilise dentures to make them stay where they are supposed to!

Denture stabilisation (also known as Implant Retained Dentures) is a process undertaken to improve the stability, comfort, and effectiveness of dentures. There are various methods of stabilising dentures but the most effective is using dental implants to anchor the denture. Implants are beneficial for denture wearers because they provide unrivalled levels of support and anchorage. Patients with dentures may worry that their dentures will come loose at times – but this won’t happen with implant-retained dentures.

We’ve tried to answer the most commonly asked questions here, but if there’s anything else you’d like to know, please speak to a member of the team.

Who is denture stabilisation for?

Those who wear dentures but have the normal problems associated with dentures, such as affected speech, bite strength and function, irritation, and being unable to eat certain foods, will benefit from implant retained dentures. Irritation and inflammation are a big issues with denture wearers but dental implants can solve all these issues.

Does the procedure hurt?

The procedure is painless and normally only requires a mild local anaesthetic. There may be some slight discomfort after the procedure, but this will soon get better and the mouth will return to normal.

Advantages of denture stabilisation

Denture stabilisation is designed to address many of the problems experienced by denture wearers, with implants having a range of benefits for the patient:

  • Improved speech
  • Improved ability to chew
  • Peace of mind
  • Enhanced aesthetics
  • Enhanced comfort
  • Reduced risk of irritation
  • Prevents bone degeneration
  • Prevents the need for new dentures
Disadvantages of denture stabilisation

Dental implants take some getting used to and in the first few days, patients may find that they have problems with eating, and speaking and may have some facial pain due to the procedure. After a few days, this should all settle down and the benefits of denture stabilisation will become apparent.
