Implant Retained Dentures
One of the recurring issues dentists frequently encounter with full dentures, especially lower dentures, is poor retention and constant movement whilst talking or eating.
This is due to minimal bone available to support the denture which is encompassed by two very strong and mobile muscles, the lips and tongue.
The constant movement of the dentures result in chronic rubbing of the gums leading to pain and sore spots.
Thanks to the advent of mini implant we can now adapt a pre-existing denture or a new denture onto a mini – implants that are inserted into the jaw bone thus creating a ‘ball and suction’ effect. Resulting in superior stability of dentures.
