If you would like a dental implant restoration but would prefer to remove your prosthetic teeth, implant-retained dentures are a fantastic solution.

Many patients who opt for implant-retained dentures are existing wearers looking for a more secure, comfortable solution and freedom from messy denture adhesive.

An implant-retained denture fitting involves placing a small number of implants into the jaw — at least two per arch, in most cases.

If you’re a new wearer, your dentures will be made with special attachments that allow them to fix on to your implants. If you’re an existing wearer, your current dentures can be retrofitted to make them compatible.

Either way, you simply click your dentures into place on top of your implants, providing you with additional security and comfort while retaining the convenience to remove your teeth as necessary.

Another benefit of implant-retained dentures over standard ones is that chewing force is transferred to the jaw rather than the gums. Not only does this reduce discomfort, but it also stimulates the growth of new bone cells in your jaw.

The regeneration of your jaw can help reverse the effects that bone loss may have had on your facial appearance. Many conventional denture wearers find their face begins to sag over time, making them appear older than they are.

Implant-retained dentures can help you turn back the clock.

Implant Retained Dentures Glasgow FAQs

Whilst this procedure is an invasive one, this isn’t to say that it hurts, as such.

You may feel some discomfort and pressure as the implant is inserted into your jawbone, but thanks to the anaesthetic we use beforehand, it won’t cause any intense pain.

It’s normal for patients to feel some tenderness during the healing process, but this is nothing that a dose of over-the-counter painkillers can’t fix.

You may also experience some swelling post-procedure, and this can be minimised by applying an ice pack to the affected area for ten minutes every hour.

If you:

  • Are over the age of 18
  • Have lost some or all of your natural teeth
  • Need a more secure alternative to traditional dentures

Implant-retained dentures in Glasgow will be perfect for you.

However, to qualify for treatment, you need to have sufficient bone density in the jaw to be able to support the dental implant.

In many cases, bone graft surgery can help patients add volume and density to areas where they’ve lost bone to prepare for the dental implant procedure.

Your gums will also need to be healthy, which means if you currently have gum disease, you’ll need to treat this first before undergoing implant treatment.

Implant-retained dentures don’t come cheap, and the price you’ll pay depends on several different factors, including:

  • How many teeth you need to replace – the more teeth that need replacing, the more expensive your treatment will be.
  • The location of your missing tooth/teeth – the trickier the tooth (or teeth) is to reach, the more expensive treatment will be.
  • Preliminary procedures – of course, if you need any treatments beforehand – such as a bone graft or gum disease treatment – you’ll have to pay more.

Here at Shawlands Dental Care, prices for implant-retained dentures in Glasgow start from £6,200.

We understand that the cost can put people off going ahead with dental implants – but we’re passionate about making such advanced and high-quality care accessible to all of our patients.

This is why we offer a range of dental care plans and payment options to make private treatments more affordable.
