At The Denture and Implant Clinic, patients in and around the area of Epsom are welcome to learn about the many ways our team can restore their smiles. When tooth loss occurs, many patients are overwhelmed at the options available for restoring the function and aesthetics of their smiles. There are several solutions available – implants, dentures, and bridges. However, there is no “one size fits all” option, which is why it is important for patients to confer with a dentist with years of experience in dental restoration.
Patients in the Epsom area missing an entire arch of teeth may benefit from the placement of full dentures. Unfortunately, the idea of full dentures may deter many patients. They may be worried about their dentures staying in place while they eat their favourite foods or speak with others. When patients have a concern about the stability of their full dentures, they may be introduced to the idea of placing several tooth implants along the dental arch to secure their denture.
Tooth implants, more commonly known as “dental implants,” are small titanium posts. The dentist will place them along the dental arch during oral surgery. They are placed into the bone of the jaw for optimum stability. Once osseointegration occurs and holds them firmly in place, patients will have their full dentures retrofitted to snap over the implants. This gives the dentures the strength they need to function properly and stay in place without patients having to worry about denture adhesives or natural suction. This eliminates a lot of the anxieties patients have about dentures, and gives them the confidence to look and feel their best!
