Fixed implant dentures allow you to:
- Enjoy all your favourite foods once more
- Socialise without the worry that your dentures may slip
- Throw away your denture adhesive because implants are securely fixed
- Taste your food because there’s no plastic plate over your palate
- Improve your looks as implants preserve bone avoiding a ‘caved in’ appearance

How can you secure my denture?
An implant-retained denture is ideal if you have lots of missing teeth or no teeth at all. A full upper denture is firmly fixed to four (or six) implants and a lower denture can be secured with just two implants.
Do I have to take my teeth out at night?
Because dental implants provide a fixed tooth replacement, there is no need to remove your teeth at night.
How long do implants last?
In a healthy person with a healthy mouth and bone, implant roots (the metal part) should last as long as your natural teeth. They need caring for as natural teeth do. The crowns or bridges supported by the implants can last a decade or more.
Will treatment hurt?
All treatment is carried out under a local anesthetic making the area numb. Dental implant treatment is a minor surgical procedure that has been performed for many years, with excellent success rates.
What if I feel nervous?
We understand that some people don’t like coming to the dentist, especially to have complex treatment. We do everything we can to ensure that our patients are made to feel at ease, and that they’re in safe hands. Our purpose-built practice has been specifically designed for patient comfort, creating a welcoming ambiance that will help to alleviate feelings of anxiety.
Is sedation an option?
Yes, this is an option for patients who find the thought of treatment worrying. Guildhall Dental’s accredited implantologist, John Hare, will talk you through the options available during your consultation.
Dental implants cost
Over time, dental implants will prove to be the most cost-effective solution to replacing missing teeth. Although the initial outlay may appear high, considered over say, a 20-year period, the ongoing cost of dentures or fixed bridges would be much greater. Plus you won’t experience sore gums, messy adhesives or embarrassing or awkward moments with loose dentures.
