Dentures are a common solution for patients who have lost all or most of their teeth. However, traditional dentures are prone to problems including:
Over time, your gums and jawbone will shrink, causing dentures to become loose and uncomfortable. A popular solution is to use permanent or implant-retained dentures, which use a small number of mini dental implants to hold your dentures in place. The implants will integrate with your jawbone preventing further deterioration of the bone. This removes the possibility of them becoming rocky and enables you to eat a full range of foods without fear.
Permanent dentures use mini dental implants, which are a smaller version of standard dental implants. They are also sometimes known as denture implants. Dr Osman uses gentle, non-surgical and minimally invasive techniques to fit these implants, which can in most cases be carried out in just one visit, using local anaesthetic or mild sedation if necessary.
