Implant-Retained Dentures

Snap On Dentures Using Implants

Implant-retained dentures are similar to All-on-4 in that they use only a few implants to replace a full arch of missing teeth. Differing from the old All on 4, implant-retained dentures are removable, making them a cheaper alternative that costs from £7,000.

Implant-retained dentures explained

Often referred to as clip-on-dentures, implant-retained dentures work the same way as traditional dentures, where they can be removed to clean but differ because they are reattached to implants afterwards.

Implant-retained dentures are usually recommended in cases where patients are either experiencing total tooth loss or have few teeth remaining, whether in the upper or lower jaws. These implant dentures are more cost-effective because they use fewer dental implants to secure the false teeth in place. For example, up to six implants can be used in the upper denture, between two and four for the lower arches, or even both arches simultaneously.

How implant-retained dentures work

Dental implants are the only way you can fix fake teeth in place with little degree of movement and without the need to rely on suction, adhesives or metal clasps.

Using a titanium screw, a dental implant is embedded deep into the jaw bone, which then grows around the implant, making it one of the most stable and secure solutions.

From here, a dental abutment is used to physically retain and connect the implant to the denture, where you can ‘click’ your denture in and out of place.

You want dentists who work with missing teeth

Dentist Dr Kleiber has dedicated their dental career to replacing missing teeth with advanced, permanent prosthetics that provide patients with the best long-term solutions. Because of this, he is highly successful in edentulous cases, where full arch rehabilitation is required using advanced techniques like All-on-4 or implant-retained dentures.

So, suppose you’re like many of our patients who want to retain the benefits of using dental implants to replace their missing teeth but require a more cost-effective choice. In that case, you might want to explore implant-retained dentures as your rehabilitation solution.

Say goodbye to loose, ill-fitting dentures

The beauty of implant-retained dentures is that they do not rely on suction or clasps to stay in place but are rather secured to dental implants that are fused into the bone in your jaw, which means they don’t move and slip around, as seen with traditional dentures.

“George at CAP City Dental has been my regular dentist since I moved to London”

The benefits of implant dentures:

  • Dental implants fix dentures in place without the need for denture adhesives, clasps or suction, meaning the dentures are palateless, which also restores taste sensations, improving eating, speaking and chewing.
  • Patients experience little degree of movement as the dentures are held securely in place with three or more dental implants, which makes them more stable than regular removable dentures.
  • In some instances, patients can use their existing dentures. However, it will depend on their quality, with newly made dentures being the most recommended to best fit their implants.
  • Implant-retained dentures are comfortable, secure and reliable, which means you never have to worry about them falling out mid-conversation or coming loose.

What to bear in mind

Patients should know, however, that with implant-retained dentures, the final prosthetic is not immediately loaded, as seen with procedures like Teeth in a Day (All on 4).

Whilst implant-retained dentures are a great cost-effective solution to replace missing teeth, patients can still expect limitations, especially around food, where you’ll be allowed to eat much more. However, they will still be limited in your choice.

As implant-retained dentures are removable devices, patients can still expect a slight degree of movement, which is not comparable to the kind of movement related to conventional dentures. However, it’s not perfect. Patients not wanting to compromise on this feature can explore other fixed implant denture solutions.

I've been seeing George for over 15 years. One of my best decisions. Teeth needed serious attention and were immediately "rescued". They have been maintained to an excellent level ever since. Fantastic treatment and continuing results.

American 🇺🇸 Pilot with a very busy schedule. Was in London of one of my many layovers summer 2023. Had not been to a dentist in sometime. Was in need of a deep scaling for oral hygiene and start pains of a Carrie. I’m one of those and for all work completed under N20 (Nitrous Oxide Gas) for seems to be only way. He was able to see me and complete this matter swiftly and professionally. Didn’t scare me out of the chair. Recommend this practice and would return on a layover.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting CapCityDental for a dental cleaning, and I must say, it was an exceptional experience from start to finish. As someone who prioritizes oral health, I've had my fair share of dental appointments, but this one truly stood out. From the moment I walked in, I felt welcomed and at ease, setting the tone for a fantastic dental cleaning session. The moment I stepped into the clinic, the friendly receptionist - Michael, greeted me with a warm smile and efficiently took care of the check-in process. The waiting area was clean, comfortable, and featured modern decor that helped create a relaxing atmosphere. It was clear that the staff at at CapCityDental value professionalism and patient comfort. Dr. George, the senior dental hygienist was a true expert in his field. He took the time to explain the entire cleaning process, making sure I was comfortable and informed every step of the way. Indeed, it did feel like a warm hug. Furthermore, his dental nurse Marilou was just a gem. Her gentle yet thorough approach put me at ease, and I could sense her commitment to delivering top-notch oral care. It's evident that CapCityDental has a team that's passionate about what they do. What truly sets CapCityDental apart was their dedication to personalized care and patient education. The hygienist nurse took the time to discuss my oral health habits and offered valuable insights on how to improve my routine. She answered all my questions patiently, showing a genuine interest in my oral health journey. This level of individualized attention left a lasting impression on me. In conclusion, my dental cleaning experience at CapCityDental was nothing short of outstanding. From the moment I walked in to the moment I left, I felt valued as a patient and confident in the care I received. The professionalism, expertise, and genuine concern for patient well-being were evident throughout. I wholeheartedly recommend this clinic to anyone seeking exceptional dental care in a welcoming and modern environment. I'm already looking forward to my next visit!

I had emergency root canal with George and team, and subsequent fillings and hygiene. The service and quality of finish was impeccable. Excellent communication and a focus on patient experience puts you at ease from the start. The after care is also excellent. Couldn’t recommend enough.

I have been so incredibly impressed with my experiences at CAP City Dental. George has been so professional, caring and clearly has a wealth of experience within dentistry. I have had a variety of treatments over many years with George and he is the only dentist I have ever come across that has been able to ease my anxiety surrounding dental treatment. The new Austin Friars premises is so well located in the heart of London and it’s actually a tranquil experience to attend appointments.100% recommended!

George and his team have been looking after me for almost 10 years now. When George took me on, my teeth were in a very sorry state. Since then George has worked very hard to improve the function, health and look of my teeth. Thanks to George I only require routine checkups and the odd piece of work now. Seeing George has made going to the dentist a breeze and a very happy social occasion! I can’t recommend George highly enough. The best dentist I’ve ever had. Very attentive and caring…with exquisite attention to detail; second to none. I should also mention that the new location in Austin Friars is a lovely calm oasis in the heart of the City. Modern health setting in a historic built environment. Thanks George.

I had a tooth that was causing me severe pain. I was feeling highly anxious because my previous dentist treated the wrong tooth. My childhood orthodontist left me with an occlusion and had taken out too many teeth. I was having trouble finding a dentist who would not only treat my gaps and cavities, but would also provide an unbiased opinion of my previous treatments. After appointments with other clinics, I found Cap City Dental. Dr Druttman, Marilou, Reni and Michael were welcoming. They helped me correct years of problems in just three visits over as many weeks. The team genuinely try to understand what you are trying to achieve. They don’t push you to have work done. I particularly appreciated Dr Druttman’s comprehensive reports in which he provided his professional opinion on what happened and what should happen moving forward. I highly recommend them not only because they make sure you feel comfortable, but provide you with enough information to ensure you can make an informed decision.
