Implant-retained dentures are an effective way of replacing multiple missing teeth. Not only do they allow you to eat and chew better, they allow you to smile and speak with confidence in the knowledge that you teeth look natural and are secure. All this without the need for denture adhesives and pastes! They also improve the aesthetics of the face and minimise wrinkles around the lips by preserving the remaining bone in your jaws. They are a significant improvement to conventional removable dentures and only a notch or two below a fully fixed bridge.

Implant retained dentures are dentures that use dental implants to securely hold them in place via a special frictional or magnetic connection. This makes the dentures far more stable and retentive whilst still removable at will. This gives you greater security and confidence in knowing that they will not embarrassingly fall out in the middle of a conversation or whilst eating.
Implant retained dentures are a cost-effective way of replacing multiple missing teeth simultaneously providing a huge improvement from traditional removable dentures.
This means you no longer need sticky denture adhesives, pastes, strips or powders.
If you have existing dentures that fit well and you are otherwise happy - apart from them being loose then in these cases your current denture can be attached to implants without the need to make new dentures, giving you huge cost savings.
There are two main procedures associated with Inman aligner treatment which allow us to be able to give you the beautiful smile that you deserve. One of them is the use of attachment technology and the other is known as IPR. More details of each are given below:
A lower denture only needs a minimum of 2 conventional implants to give a exponential improvement on your ability to chew foods, and smile with confidence. For better stability 4 lower implants are recommended if you have the available bone.
For upper dentures a minimum of 4 conventional implantes are required
Yes you can as long as they are of a good quality, fit well, look good and have a good bite. You must be happy with your existing dentures on every aspect except the fact that they are loose. In such cases we can convert these and make them implant retained. If your current dentures are not suitable then we would have to make you a new set of dentures on the new implants.
Yes in certain circumstances you can – however in others you cannot. Its is far better to plan what type of teeth you would like from the outset – either removable (as in implant retained dentures) or fully fixed as in a full implant screw fitted bridge or “all on 4”. This way we can give you the best and most bespoke solution right from the outset.
If we are converting your existing lower denture on 2 lower implants then this would typically cost in the region of £2500
If we are making a new dentures on 4 implants then the typical cost is in the region of £5995.
To keep the implants completely clean and disease free and ensure they last as long as possible we would recommend that you come in every 4-6 months for hygiene visits
The removable dentures are usually held onto the implant via frictional retentive nylon rings. These rings will wear out over time and willneed replacing which is a very quick and easy process.
On average we would say patients come back every 1-2 years for replacement of these nylon rings. Some patients who have a very strong bite or want the dentures super tight at all times may request to get the rings replaced every 4-6 months. Replacement of all the rings usually costs ~£50-£60 per denture.
We certainly do and would be more than happy to discuss all the options with you. Please contact us to speak to one of our treatment co-ordinators who would be more than happy to go through all the options with you.
At Zental, your comfort is our main priority. We offer several comfort treatments to make your surgical procedure more comfortable. Our surgeons will discuss the most suitable comfort treatment options for your procedure.
Typically treatment will take between 4-6 months from start to finish. Most of this time is allow the implants to fully integrate and fuse with your bone. In the meantime you can wear your existing denture over the top of the healing implants as a short term measure or we can make a new temporary denture for you whilst healing takes place.
We offer a haven of tranquillity, thoughtfully designed to stimulate the senses and complemented by state-of-the-art technology that makes your experience calm, relaxing and ultimately re-energising.
