Implant retained dentures


article by Raha Sepehrara

Fed up of having loose dentures? Fed up of having to use messy glues to keep your dentures in? Why not consider having implant-retained dentures?

This treatment consists in having 4-6 implants per jaw and then placing a bar or some metal attachments on the implants and in this way the dentures can securely and tightly clip onto the implants. This will allow a very tight fit of the dentures.

Our dentist, Dr Kalpesh Bohara, recently completed this type of treatment on a patient from Nottingham. This pleasant lady had been wearing dentures for many years and was complaining about their looseness. She ended up having implants onto which a bar was attached allowing the upper denture to clip onto the bar. The results were excellent and the patients was extremely happy.
