Why have full jaw dental implants?
Our patients repeatedly tell us how their dentures or missing teeth mean they struggle to eat certain foods, they lack the confidence to smile, or are reluctant to go out in public for fear of being judged by the appearance of their teeth. They subsequently tell us that our treatment has helped to transform their lives.
The evolution of dental implant technology has rendered dentures virtually obsolete. In the 50 years of modern dental implantology, research and technology have allowed us to push the envelope of what is possible to dizzying new heights.
Look and behave as natural teeth – you can enjoy life again!
Dentures are routinely unstable, unreliable, ill-fitting or uncomfortable. They can also interfere with eating, smiling and speaking. With strong and stable dental implants, teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth. You can eat normally again without any hesitation – some patients even see an improvement in their overall health once they are able to eat a greater range of foods again. You can also smile without feeling embarrassed or self-conscious.
Permanently fixed in place
Dental implants are fixed in place and fuse naturally with your jawbone, meaning your replacement teeth will not move. There is no more need for messy adhesives, and no more fear that your dentures might loosen, slip or fall out.
Retain your natural face shape
A face without teeth can sag and appear sunken over time. A full jaw prosthesis fitted onto dental implants will provide firm support of the facial structure, allowing you to maintain the natural shape of your face and smile.
Protect healthy bone
When teeth are missing and the jawbone is not being used to support natural teeth, bone loss can occur as the jawbone deteriorates. Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that stimulate the natural bone and prevent bone loss.
A long-term investment
Dental implants are built to last and, with proper care and minimal maintenance, they can potentially last a lifetime. In contrast, dentures require frequent relining or replacement.
