Patients wearing full dentures may experience:
- Dentures with reduced or no support from the gums
- Dependence on denture glues
- Reduced chewing efficiency and speech changes
If this sounds like you, there may be an alternative available.
We utilise the latest in 3D dental technology for precision and careful placement of dental implants to anchor the full denture in place. This is possible with locators, which are screwed onto the implants. The base of the full denture has metal housing caps which correspond to the locators on the implants. The connection between these two interfaces can provide additional support for stability and retention of the full denture.
What Does This Mean for You?
- There is something to hold the denture in place while you are eating and speaking
- Removability of denture for cleaning is not affected
