Implant Retained Dentures


For a lot of people, wearing a denture is very uncomfortable due to the lack of retention while eating. Dental implants can be used to stabilise a denture making them much more comfortable, and also much better for function allowing you to eat harder things again.


Implants can be used to retain both full or partial dentures. The procedure is suitable for patients who already wear a denture or who may have to in the future.


Unlike dental implants with porcelain teeth attached, which are not removed for cleaning, an implant retained denture needs to be taken out every evening and cleaned in the same way as a traditional denture, then replaced in the mouth the next morning.


There are different types of fixing mechanisms available – your dentist will be able to advise on which one is going to work best for you.

Advantages of implant retained dentures


In comparison with traditional dentures, implant retained dentures have the following benefits:


More stable positioning – once in place, implant retained dentures are extremely secure, allowing confident biting and chewing, even when foods are quite tough or crunchy. They are also less likely to cause gum irritation due to friction.


Natural look – the false teeth are designed to be a very close match with existing teeth in terms of colour, giving a natural look.


If you are considering implant retained dentures, or would like to know more about what the procedure entails and whether it would be right for you, an appointment at Crowborough Gentle Dental Practice will give you the opportunity you need to ask questions and find out more. 

The process of having implant-retained dentures generally consists of several steps over a 3-6 month period as described below:


1. Consultation + x-ray assessment of the potential implant sites – all associated procedures and risks will be discussed including a printed quote covering all costs involved.


2. Implant surgery (may include additional procedures including bone grafting or sinus lift) – usually done in a pain-free manner under local anaesthetic in the dental chair. Procedure time will be determined by the number of implants needed.


3. Healing period of 3-6 months – time needed for implant to integrate into the jaw bone before it can be used for function. Dentures will be worn carefully during this time. We will schedule review appointments during this time to check the healing process.


4. New denture fabrication or modifying existing denture – this will be done by our local certified dental laboratory to ensure the correct fit is achieved.


5. Maintenance and follow ups – implants along with the dentures should be reviewed at least on a yearly basis along with the rest of the mouth at routine dental check-ups. 

Do You Love Your Dentist? Our Patients Do!

Don’t just take our word for it! The kind words others have said about us are true testaments of how we treat our patients, friends, families, and Crowborough neighbours.

Just had my first appointment there and cannot praise the lovely Hazel Del Rosa enough. Gentle, caring and incredibly thorough at explaining issues. If I hadn’t already been aware her explanation wouldn’t have scared me in the slightest, I felt reassured regarding the care offered.
Had a great experience at CGD. I have had some brutal experiences in the past with other dentists and was apprehensive. I needed an extraction and it was handled brilliantly. No pain at all and done quickly and with a great deal of care and sensitivity. I highly recommend this practise if you have any fear of visiting the dentist. Excellent!
I visited Shreyas Mhatre for an implant assessment which first required treatment for an underlying infection. Throughout the whole process I really appreciated his calm and reassuring manner along with a clear, honest expectation for success. Combined with his attention to detail and precision, I felt confident with his work and am very happy with the final results. Highly recommended for implant and root canal work.
