Denture stabilization at High Dental Implants Melbourne
Imagine being able to eat, chew and enjoy all of the foods that you want to be able to without having to worry about your dentures falling out, for the rest of your life. If you are tired of only eating soft food or avoiding berries or nuts that can get stuck under your plate, then perhaps denture stabilisation at High Dental Implants Melbourne can assist you with a life changing procedure.
When someone has loose or ill-fitting dentures, their ability to speak, laugh and eat may become negatively affected. At High Dental Implants Melbourne, we are able to take advantage of dentistry advancements and provide you with a procedure that permanently fixes your dentures into your jaw.
We use dental implants to stabilise your dentures and to offer you a more permanent solution to regain your smile. You can laugh, eat and speak with ease knowing that your dentures are not going to slip or fall out and cause you embarrassment.
How does it work?
The implants themselves are surgically inserted into your jaw. They are simply metal rods that integrate with the jawbone and the surrounding tissue to encourage bone growth at the site. It will take several weeks for the bone and metal rod to fuse together and special care needs to be taken in order to prevent infection and potential rejection of the dental implants in Melbourne. This is rare but in special cases it is important to take additional precautionary steps.
Your dentures will be placed on top of the dental implants in Melbourne with a series of fixtures that ensure that they stay in place, but are easily removed for cleaning. It is a great way to minimise any concerns or worry you may have regarding your smile, but also allowing you to follow the routine that you are used to with cleaning your dentures.
Why have my dentures started slipping?
It is common for dentures to begin to slip and not fit as properly as they should over time due to the jawbone’s natural reaction of receding when it is no longer stimulated by tooth roots.
The pressure of biting down and chewing with natural teeth stimulates the jaw and allows it to continually make new cells and restore itself. When your teeth are removed and you begin to wear dentures, they unfortunately do not give the same kind of stimulation as natural teeth and so over time the jawbone begins to recede.
If the bone has receded too far, we may need to provide you with some additional treatment to add bone to the jaw so that there is enough for the implant to be attached to. There are many options available to all of our patients who are experiencing varied situations.
We aim to personalise our treatment in every situation to have you feeling as comfortable and relaxed as possible throughout the entire procedure. Your well-being is important to us at High Dental Implants Melbourne and we are honoured to be able to provide you with denture stabilisation.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
