Implant Retained Overdentures

Implant retained overdentures are the denture alternative Townsville patients prefer!

Dental Implants are a wonderful advancement in the denture world, giving patients the alternative of a far more secure and stable denture than conventional dentures (false teeth).

 

First, your dentist (not a dental prosthetist) implants a permanent small titanium screw in your jaw. Next, we wait for the healing process to complete. Once healed and secure, these small screws and their attachments act similarly to a press stud. They also provide mechanical retention far more superior to the natural suction force of original dentures.

BENEFITS OF PERMANENT DENTURES

  • Improve confidence and quality of life
  • Aid in prevention of unnecessary bone loss
  • No more loose dentures
  • Increased comfort, better fit and fewer sore spots
  • Greater biting force when eating
  • Improve nutrition, eat a broader range of foods
  • Easy maintenance, no more denture adhesive

WHAT IS A DENTAL IMPLANT?

Dental implants are small titanium screws that are inserted into your jawbone by a dentist or dental specialist. (NB This is NOT performed by our team of dental prosthetists. Dentures Direct create the implant-retained overdentures that clip onto the implants, once placed and healed.)

 

These little screws then act as an artificial tooth root. Once the screw is inserted, bone tissue will start to adhere to the screw and become a permanent fixture. This process is call osteointegration and takes no less than three to four months before the implant can withhold any forces.

 

Once the implant has fully integrated and is totally secure, your dentist or dental specialist will attach the rest of the components to the implant that will provide the mechanical retention for your denture.
