If you are one of the many people that suffer with loose dentures then we may have the answer for you. There are many people in Glasgow who have lost all of their teeth and so are forced to wear dentures. Unfortunately many times they can be slack and so they will move when you eat or talk. This can be embarrassing, especially when you are out with friends, and can lower your self confidence. Thankfully there is a cost effective solution that can help you. At Complete Dental Care we are skilled and fully equipped in placing dental implants. Dental implants can be used to help secure loose dentures in place and so restore your confidence. For most people the lower denture is the main problem and current thinking is that the minimum treatment for someone who has lost all of their teeth should be a lower denture that is held in place with dental implants and a normal upper denture. This is the recommended minimum treatment to give a good quality of life but there are many other options available with dental implants that are far superior to this.
How many Dental Implants do I need?
For a lower denture we would normally place 2 dental implants into your jaw. This would be strong enough to securely hold your denture in place and stop it from moving. For upper dentures we normally place 4 dental implants. The bone in your upper jaw tends to be a bit thinner and so we need to place more dental implants to be sure that everything remains strong.
Am I too old for Dental Implants?
You are never too old for Dental Implants. As long as you are healthy then it will be possible to place dental implants. We will of course fully assess your medical history and discuss any potential problems and risks at the start of your treatment.
