Fixed Implant Retained Dentures
Fixed Implant Retained Dentures are an effective and comprehensive solution for patients who need a full upper and/or lower set of dentures using titanium implants to provide added comfort and security.
At Revitalise Dental Centre we can offer our patients a bespoke denture service that either incorporates your existing dental implants or includes the fitting of new implants into your treatment plan.
Fixed Implant Retained Dentures provide peace of mind, added comfort and confidence that there will be no movement of your dentures and are perfect for people looking for a new smile with a natural look and feel.
The handcrafted denture, made in our on-site laboratory by our skilled technicians, is securely fixed to the new or existing implants and offers increased support for the structure of your mouth, your gums and your overall oral health.
Gaps or missing teeth can cause weakness to occur in the jawbone and facial muscles and can increase the chances of gum disease or tooth decay. A fixed implant retained denture not only improves your smile but can also help to mitigate these issues and ensure better oral health.
Before your tailor-made denture is created by our expert laboratory team we will use a CT scan to show you a digital image of your face and the results you can expect to see when your denture treatment is completed. Fixed implant retained dentures give your facial muscles additional support and structure.
From your initial consultation to the appointment to fit your finished denture you can expect to receive our five-star service. Our team will talk you through every stage of your treatment answering any questions you have and ensuring your comfort and well-being every step of the way.
There are many options, all of which can be discussed with you at your consultation session. Each route has its own benefits and can enhance your quality of life as well as your smile.

How to look after your implant denture.
A thorough and consistent oral hygiene regime is always the best way to care for your natural teeth, gums, any dental prosthesis and your overall oral health.
At Revitalise part of the five star service we provide is a carefully structured After Care plan.
This not only shows you the best way to look after your new implants and dentures, but also ensures that, if closely followed, your treatment and your smile will have the longest lifespan possible.
Caring for your implants and dentures from day one will increase the chances of them fulfilling their optimum potential and will help you to prevent unnecessary damage.
Dentures that are badly treated or neglected can cause discomfort and accumulate bacteria that may lead to tooth decay or gum disease. Twice daily brushing and flossing and regular check ups with your dentist and hygienist will help to keep your teeth, gums and dentures looking and feeling exceptional.
