Denture Stabilization / Mini Implants
Mini Dental Implants: Great option for dental stabilization
If you have dentures, you know that they can be uncomfortable and ill-fitting at times. If you are tired of the hassle of traditional dentures, denture stabilization is an excellent option. Dr. Rob Harrell at Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne uses what are known as mini implants to create a much more effective denture, one that can be truly life-changing.
Traditional complete dentures are held in place solely with over-the-counter adhesives. Obviously, this is not the most secure attachment and can make eating or speaking with complete dentures somewhat difficult. Mini implants are a highly effective and intuitive way to solve this problem without having to replace your denture.
The implants serve as an anchor for the denture, keeping it immobile and much more functional in everyday life. Several metal posts are inserted at strategic places within the jawbone. Obviously, mini implants consist of smaller posts than those which are used in single dental implants. This makes for a much faster healing and bone-fusing process. The tops of the posts are fashioned in a way that they can attach to the underside of your preexisting denture. The denture itself is equipped with fasteners that allow them to snap onto the tops of the posts, which is why this type of device is sometimes called a “snap on” denture.
Benefits of Denture Stabilization via Mini Implants
* Because mini implants make it possible to “snap on” your denture, it is far more secure than it would be with simple adhesives. This makes it possible to eat all types of foods with ease.
* Mini implants do not sacrifice the ability to remove your denture. You can simply snap it on and off at your convenience, making it very easy to enjoy stability and ease of sterilization.
* Most patients do not need a new denture.
* Because the posts are smaller in mini implants, the procedure can be completed in one office visit. In fact, once your denture has been stabilized, you can eat normally the very same day.
