Implant Dentures


Do you have dentures that wobble around, drop down when you talk or eat?

Do your dentures affect your personal lifestyle or at work because they don't look like real teeth?

Dentures are not the perfect solution to replacing missing teeth, nowadays with the success of Dental Implants in replacing missing teeth – we can now replace dentures with a full mouth of Implant teeth or even use Implants to make your denture more stable and give you back your confidence and self esteem.

What is an Implant denture?

The implant denture is like a denture but looks more like real teeth and sits on the implants for added retention so that it no longer will wobble or fall out when you talk or eat.
But if you no longer want a denture, then Implants can be used to give you a full mouth of fixed teeth which look and feel like as if you have your natural teeth back. You can talk to one of our expert Implant dentists about this option too.

In summary –

How can dental implants replace my missing teeth?

-Dental Implants can be used to replace 1 or 2 teeth that are missing in your mouth. This is simply done by placing 1 or 2 dental implants into the jaw bone where the tooth root used to be. Then a Crown or bridge , which mimics your teeth is connected to the implant/s. Thus giving you back that tooth root and tooth crown that you lost.

-But If all your teeth are missing then – you have two choices;

  1. You can have many implants placed in the jaw where you have lost your teeth – usually you will need about 6 implants. To these implants we can attach enough crowns to give you back all the teeth you lost. You will achieve the nearest thing to receiving your teeth back. The implant teeth will look and feel like your teeth and you will no longer need to wear a denture.
  2. If you don't mind the idea of a denture – but just want to be more secure and more natural looking then you can have between 2 and 4 implants placed under the denture and these implants can be simply connected to a special implant denture. The implant denture is like a denture but looks more like real teeth and sits on the implants for added retention so that it no longer will wobble or fall out when you talk or eat.

How much does it cost to have a new secure denture with a few implants?

The cost of the Implants is about £2000 to £4000 and the new denture is about £1700.

Can I pay in instalments for my Implant treatments?

Yes, many of our patients prefer to pay about £30 to £40 per month and get the benefit of having the treatment straight away. Our implant dentist can talk about this with you at the consultation.

I feel worried about the actual treatment- is there anything your dentist can do to make it easier for me?

We understand that the dental practice is not many people's favourite place to be!- at Longwood House we treat every patient with respect and kindness. We will make sure that we are gentle in our treatments and our patients do comment on how the never felt anything during the treatment and how quickly they got better. Our dentists are either specialists in their field or have postgraduate training. Our Implant dentists both have over 25 years of experience in dentistry and are excellent in relaxing and caring for the patient. We also can offer sedation with our treatments as well, which is very well liked by the nervous patient.

How Do I book in for an Implant Consultation?

Our first consultation takes between 30 to 45 minutes. The implant dentist will find out from you why you wish to have dental implants, check that they will be suitable for you and then discuss with you the whole procedure and how many treatment visits you will need. They will also ask you about any anxieties and worries you may have, and help you with these.

They will then discuss the cost of your treatment and see how it can be made affordable for you.

The consultation will cost £38. You can call our friendly reception staff, they will be happy to assist you.

If you have any questions about Implant treatment then you may email Dr Tasleem Ahmed on info@happier-smiles.co.uk. She will be happy to assist you.
