Implant Supported Dentures

Smile confidently again


If you are missing all your teeth, an implant supported denture can be a really effective, long-lasting way to replace them.

There are a number of implant-supported over-denture options available. There are two main types of ‘removable’ implant-supported dentures available which are press studs or syncone.

For patients who already wear a denture but would like to improve the stability of it, then the use of ‘press-stud’ connections fitted to dental implants are the simplest and most cost-effective way to keep their denture securely in place. We find that for many of our patients who are denture wearers, just the ability to stabilise the denture is a real bonus, it allows them to eat and speak normally without worrying about their denture dropping out. In addition, the fact that these dentures are removable for daily cleaning allows for a totally hygienic solution requiring very little professional maintenance.

Benefits of implant supported dentures

  • Cheaper and simpler than other dental implant solutions
  • Helps to preserve jawbone
  • Can be removed for cleaning.
  • More comfortable than conventional dentures
  • Stable and restores strength to your bite and the ability to chew all foods.
  • Discreet and aesthetically pleasing option for patients with naturally high smile lines (the position to which your lip rises on full smile)

Our dentures are made to a very high specification and are made from extremely strong acrylic material.  The Bio-functional Prosthetic System (BPS) is the only acrylic dentures we would consider using for any of our patients, as they have a reputation for ensuring a far superior fit to any other denture system we have encountered. At one80 Dental we have been working with this denture system for almost 20 years and have helped many patients during that time.

At one80 Dental we offer a variety of denture and implant solution combinations which can help to replace your missing teeth. A consultation with our specialist team is the best way to explore your options.

Case studies

Before:

This patient did not like wearing a denture and was forced to use denture fixative. She wanted a ‘Hollywood’ smile.

 

After:

Fixed implant bridge replacing all upper teeth. The patient was delighted with her fixed implant retained restoration, espcially as she was able to eat whatever she wanted again and had a natural looking smile.

Before:

Serious level of neglect as a consequence of years of smoking damage and a an overwhelming fear of dentistry.

 

After:

Unfortunately all teeth were compromised due to disease and were loose, and were removed. Complete upper and lower dentures made with the lower denture supported/retained on to dental implant “press stud” type attachments – providing tremendous stability and retention.

Quick Dental Implant FAQs

An implant supported denture is an overdenture that is supported by and attached to implants. A conventional denture particularly an upper one stays in place mostly by the suction created by the palate; however, an implant supported overdenture does not need a palate to stay in place.

They are usually made for the lower jaw because conventional dentures tend to be less stable as the facial muscles naturally try to dislodge the denture, often managing to do so at the most inconvenient times.  Upper dentures tend to more stable and do not always need the extra support provided by dental implants. However, you can receive implant-supported dentures in both the upper and lower jaws.

Yes. If using overdentures as a solution, insufficient bone is not such a barrier for treatment, in many cases an overdenture is one of the best ways to combat missing teeth.

In addition, we have many techniques available at one80 Dental that can be used for patients with low levels of jawbone. We can: use shorter implants; modify the artificial ‘gums’ of the overdentures to be longer than usual and/or we can use advanced surgical techniques such as 3D bone regeneration or bone grafting to essentially rebuild your jawbone ready for receiving implants, to support fixed bridgework or individual artificial teeth.
