Loose dentures can leave you feeling frustrated, restricted and lacking in confidence. At Beeston Dental Practice, we can use dental implants to secure your dentures for a full set of natural-looking teeth. There are also great benefits for your dental health. Dental implants integrate with your jawbone to keep it strong and healthy while slowing down bones loss.
This cost-effective solution works by fixing your dentures onto 2 lower-jaw implants and 4 upper-jaw implants. It can also be used for partial dentures. You’ll be able to bite, chew and speak much more naturally – and we’re sure you’ll find that you smile far more often.
Our implant dentist will assess your suitability and advise on a suitable solution. You’ll have every opportunity to ask questions and we welcome this, to ensure you are completely comfortable with the procedure. Placing is performed quickly and is relatively pain free. The final step is for your dentures to be fitted onto the implants. We’ll also check fit, comfort and match to your other teeth if your dentures are partial and advise you on the best aftercare.
I have been a patient at Beeston Dental Practice for many years now. I recently decided to have upper and lower implant-retained dentures, which has improved my quality of life significantly. After receiving my new set of dentures, I have experienced greater confidence and satisfaction. I would like to thank Chris and his team for providing me with a new more confident smile.

Implant-retained dentures will feel much more natural in your mouth than dentures alone. That’s because the implants connect your dentures to your jaw bone in much the same way your teeth used to be connected to your jaw bone. Your dentures will be much more retentive, more stable and easier to eat and speak with. You’ll notice that food tastes better as your upper teeth will no longer cover the roof of your mouth and biting and chewing will be far easier.
Most people of all ages with good general health are suitable for dental implants. There are very few health conditions that contraindicate dental implant treatment, but it should be noted that smoking and a history of gum disease have been shown to affect implant treatment success rates.
From consultation to brand new smile, dental implant treatment takes around 3-6 months. It can vary from one person to the next – we’ll discuss this during your consultation.
At Beeston Dental Practice, we’re committed to making all of your visits as comfortable and pain and stress-free as possible. We use local anaesthetic when placing the implant into your gum and jaw to ensure no discomfort. We also offer sedation for our more nervous patients. You can ask any questions and expect honest, straightforward answers and we’ll go through each step of the treatment in detail.
They can last a lifetime if you care for them properly.
In general, you should clean your dentures and implants twice a day with a denture brush for your denture and a tooth brush for your implants. Each patient will be different, and our team of nurses and hygienists will devise a patient specific cleaning regime for you. Often interdental brushes are useful for cleaning tricky and hard-to-reach areas. Giving up smoking will help to protect your jawbone and it’s important to visit us regularly.
