Denture stabilisation with dental implants near Mirfield

Have you lost all of your natural teeth? If you have lost most of your teeth and you’ve had enough of loose and uncomfortable dentures, denture stabilisation with dental implants near Mirfield may be the ideal solution for you. At Greenside Dental Care, denture stabilisation is achieved through a series of dental implants, on to which a permanent denture can be attached.

Dental implants are small titanium posts, which are essentially artificial replacements for natural tooth roots. They are surgically fixed into the jawbone and because titanium is compatible with the human body, they gradually integrate into the bone tissue. Unlike other tooth replacement options that merely sit on the teeth and gums, dental implants become an integral part of the jawbone and encourage the growth of new bone tissue.

Dental Implants near MirfieldDisadvantages of traditional dentures

Although removable dentures have been used for centuries to replace missing teeth, many long-term denture wearers find that they tend to become loose and wobbly over time. Ill-fitting dentures compromise their ability to bite and chew properly and often embarrass them in social situations.

This happens because conventional dentures just sit on the jawbone and do not prevent its gradual shrinkage and deterioration. Gradually, the soft tissues of the mouth decrease in volume, and the dentures need more frequent adjustment or even replacement.

Implant-supported dentures

Dental implants, on the other hand, help to overcome these problems because they are fixed permanently into your jawbone and prevent bone loss. Our experienced dentists will attach your existing (or new) dentures on top of two to four dental implants strategically placed into your jawbone. Your dentures will attach firmly on the dental implants but will still be removable – your dentist will show you how to take them out and clean them. Unlike conventional dentures, implant-supported dentures do not have to be removed during the night.

For patients who have already lost a significant part of their jawbone, we are able to provide bone grafting at our Mirfield practice. This will help you restore the density of your jawbone and guarantee the success of your dental implants.
