Our patients usually have a lot of questions when it comes to implants and implant-retained dentures. To help you answer some of those questions in the short-term, here are some of the most common questions you might have yourself:
Will I need to be put to sleep to have the procedures done?
No. Dental implant or implant-retained denture procedures can be carried out painlessly under local anaesthetic by a qualified dental surgeon. This means you are awake throughout the treatment, but the area of your mouth being treated is completely numb.
How do I know if this will work for me given how long I’ve been in conventional dentures?
While denture implants are increasingly popular they are not appropriate for everyone. You need to have healthy gums and a sufficient bone density to allow the implants to integrate successfully with the bone.
What if I already have a few implants that are replacing missing teeth?
Wheatland Denture Centre can design the denture to align with the existing implants (and possibly adding any needed additional ones), while coordinating this treatment with the dental surgeon.
