Implant Retained Dentures
Say goodbye to denture adhesives, sore spots and embarrassing moments with implant retained dentures that have a bite comparable to natural teeth. Dental implants from Changing Faces® will hold your dentures firmly in place. Dental implants are small titanium* screws that act as a substitute for the root portions of your missing teeth. As a biocompatible material, the implant will gently fuse with your jawbone in a process known as osseointegration. This makes your Changing Faces® dentures a more natural part of you. With a more secure fit, you can talk, eat and laugh freely without having to worry about what your dentures are doing.
Dental Implants can be used for all kinds of restorations. At Changing Faces we use them like natural tooth roots to support our dentures and hold them in place. Your complete dentures or partial dentures are attached to your new artificial roots, providing you with greater stability than ever before.
Advantages of Changing Faces® implant retained dentures include:
- A stable and secure fit of your dentures to your gums
- Less denture base covering the roof of your mouth
- Improved taste and speech with less denture base
- A bite comparable to your own natural teeth
- Restored chewing ability with greater enjoyment of food
- Improved digestion and well being
- No more pressure points or sore spots

Mini dental implants removable dentures
If traditional dental implants are not suitable, which can be the case if the jawbone is not sufficient enough to support standard implants, then mini implants can be used to retain removable dentures. They are not considered a long-term solution but do offer some advantages:
- The procedure is less invasive
- The treatment is not as costly as standard implants
- The treatment can be performed under local anaesthetic
- The procedure and recovery time are quicker than with traditional implants
Mini implants can also be used as part of a treatment plan involving standard long-term implants to offer temporary stability.
In harmony with your body
As part of your consultation, the Implant Dentist will assess the condition of your jawbone, the soft tissue of your mouth, your general health and the type of dentures you require. If you decide to undergo treatment, they will develop a treatment plan to fit the dental implants that help your dentures look just like natural teeth. Because your dental implant will actually fuse with your jawbone in a process known as 'osseointegration', it won't be long before your denture teeth look and feel more secure.
Long-term solution to tooth loss
As little as two dental implants in your lower jaw are proven to significantly help overcome the social and physical limitations experienced by complete denture wearers. With Changing Faces® dental implants, you will feel healthier, happier and free to live your life the way you want.
*Titanium is a silver-white precious metal, proven to be completely biocompatible. More than being in harmony with your body, titanium actually stimulates bone growth and improves the health of your jaw. In dentistry it is used as a basic material for dental implants because of its high strength and resistance to corrosion.
