Dentures are usually made for patients when all the teeth are missing and they have lost their function of the teeth. Patients will get back some lost function of their teeth using dentures.
Depending on the need of the patients, denture can be placed as upper denture or a lower denture. Dentures are really helpful in bringing back the lost function of teeth.
When dentures are placed in the mouth, these denture are held in the mouth with the support of the gums and the muscles around the mouth.
Sometimes due to the lack of the needed tissue, the denture may not be very retentive, when this happens dentists use denture adhesives and also dental implants to aid in the retention. Some examples of denture adhesive used by our dentist are Polident, Steradent.
Dental implant retained Dentures
At Geelong Dental we use different types of attachments for the denture to clip onto the dental implants. In general we place two implants in the lower jaws and the denture can be attached to implants by either a ball, stud like or like a bar attachment.
Dental implant retained denture are more stable in the mouth therefore you will get improved comfort when chewing and feel more confident with your smile when using dentures.
