Implant Retained Dentures
If you are tired of your dentures or your smile letting you down, or of missing out on enjoying a juicy steak or crisp apple, come and talk to us about implant retained dentures and find out how we can help put a smile back on your face.
To improve the stability of your dentures they can be anchored to one or more dental implants. An artificial root made from titanium is placed in the jaw and a denture with precision attachments is constructed that clips onto the implants very firmly.
The result is a denture that is stable and retentive. Studies have found that patients with implant-retained dentures (or dentures over implants as they are sometimes known) have improved speech, better chewing efficiency, increased nutritional intake and a general improved quality of life when compared to their conventional dentures.

Implant Dentures FAQs
How many dental implants will I need?
This depends on how many teeth you have missing. As a general rule we can ‘bridge’ between implants, so if you have four teeth missing in a row we could place two implants at each end and suspend two teeth between them. If you have no teeth at all, then it is possible to provide a new full set of teeth with four or six implants.
What are the added benefits of dental implantology?
When teeth are lost the bone that held them in your jaw will shrink. Placement of dental implants can preserve this bone, maintaining the shape and structure of the lips and cheeks preventing the ageing ‘caved in’ look of older people with dentures.
How much do dental implants cost?
Dental implant treatment starts from £3,850. Over time, dental implants will prove to be the most cost-effective solution to replacing missing teeth.
Can I spread the cost of my implant treatment?
Yes, we offer interest free finance to help spread the cost of implant treatment at The Smile Centre Liskeard.
