All about dental implant-supported dentures for Putney patients

Putney patients who have dealt with traditional full dentures may find them somewhat troubling. Conventional dentures might not always stay in place. They may slip and slide, irritating the gums and they can cause sores and blisters that make denture wearing extremely uncomfortable. Dental adhesives can be messy, and patients may find that they are unable to eat many of their favourite foods even when they have used adhesive. Thanks to dental implant-supported dentures, patients can now enjoy the benefits of wearing strong quality dentures.

Implant-supported dentures are a great alternative to wearing traditional full dentures. The team at Gentle Dental Putney recommends these dentures to patients who are dissatisfied with their denture wearing experience. Using dental implants to replace every single tooth in the mouth is extremely expensive and unnecessary when an alternative such as this is available.

Implant-supported dentures are held in place by a few dental implants that are surgically placed into the jawbone. These dental implants anchored in the bone through the process of osseointegration, which is when bone grows around the implant, which gives it strength and stability. The dentures are created to lock into place over the implants. Instead of dental adhesives, these implants hold the denture securely. This gives patients confidence in their smiles, and allows them to enjoy their favourite foods without worry of a lost or slipping denture.

At Gentle Dental Putney, we understand that patients want to have a wonderful experience with their dentures and know that traditional dentures can be unreliable and difficult to wear for some patients. When dentures are stabilized with dental implants, many patients are extremely satisfied with the results and are happy to have the ability to enjoy their favourite foods and laugh and smile with confidence. This can be a life-changing experience for denture wearers, and is rewarding for everyone at our practice. We focus on providing a positive experience for patients, even when dealing with concerns such as tooth loss.
