There’s nothing quite so miserable as having to contend, day in day out, with a set of teeth that don’t quite do what they should. If you have wobbly dentures, you will know what we mean. They’re meant to fit over your gums and be held there securely with vacuum suction, and once they did just that. But now, they seem to slip forwards or backwards, and they rub on your gums, what’s left of them because they’ve receded, and so has your jawbone. You can’t eat your favourite foods anymore, even if you cut them up beforehand, because your chewing teeth don’t stay still. And you are scared to burst out laughing in case your teeth burst out too.
Does that sound all too familiar? Would you like to find a solution beyond getting your dentures relined, yet again, and messy dental adhesive? Well there is a solution. In Sutton Coldfield, dentures can be fixed and made stable with dental implants.
You may have heard of dental implants and thought of them purely as an alternative to dentures in Sutton Coldfiled. Perhaps you decided against them because they seemed to expensive.
Well this is another kind of dental implant. This kind was developed for use with dentures. In Sutton Coldfield, at The Sutton Implant Clinic, we use special mini dental implants and then customise your dentures to go on top of them.
Mini dental implants are inserted straight through the gum into the jawbone, and then have a special attachment put on top. The dentures are fixed to this attachment. You may even only need two implants to stabilise a lower denture.
We can customise your current dentures, or you can have new ones made by our in-house clinic dental technician Matthew Burnell. Matthew will work with you until your dentures fit comfortably.
Many people find that their lives are transformed by having dentures that stay where they should. Steaks are back on the menu. Laughing can be spontaneous again. Your teeth look and behave like your teeth again and you can get on with thinking of other things.
