Are you fed up with your loose dentures? Feeling embarrassed that they’re slipping up and down while speaking or eating? If this sounds familiar, then there is a solution: dental implants in Kent. It’s never too late! By using metal titanium rods which are gently anchored into the jawbone, you can have your dentures securely fixed in place, in a process known as denture stabilisation.
Dental implants and mini implants have a range of benefits which can eradicate loose or wobbling dentures, improve your speech as well the ability chew whatever you want – so steak and crusty bread are no longer off the menu. It can also give you a natural and fully functional smile, so you can forget about your teeth and start smiling.
It’s also possible to have your new teeth attached to implants directly which can then only be removed by your dentist. Complete dentures can be fixed to implants by bars or clips however, which makes them easy to take out for cleaning.
Instead of dentures, you could have dental implants fitted onto which ceramic bridgework can be supported. Whole arches of missing teeth can be restored this way by using just a few dental implants.
After your initial appointment with the dentist to assess your requirements, x-rays, ct scans, impressions and other data will be taken for diagnosis and treatment planning. A surgical template will be made to precisely place the dental implants into the mouth and a diagnostic preview will be made to show you the end results. The implants will then be placed gently and pain free and a temporary restoration made while your implants are healing.
If you want dental implants, Dr Rik Trivedi who is the Principal Dentist at the Parrock Dental and Implant Centre can assess your suitability for the procedure and determine if your dentures can be stabilised using dental implants. As a member of the Association of Dental Implantology, his expertise means you’re in good hands.
