Denture Stabilization with Mini Implants
The key to having stronger, more stable dentures
If you have dentures, you know that they can be uncomfortable, ill-fitting and poorly functioning at times. If you are tired of the hassle of traditional dentures, denture stabilization with implants is an excellent option. Dr. Robert Harrell at Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne uses mini implants to create a much more stable denture — one that can be truly life-changing.
Traditional dentures are held in place by over-the-counter adhesives. This method often doesn’t produce a secure bond, which can make eating and speaking difficult. Mini implants are a highly effective and intuitive way to solve this problem without having to replace your dentures.
The implants serve as anchor points for the denture, which is equipped with fasteners that snap onto them. For this reason, implant supported dentures are also known as “snap-in” dentures.
Anchoring your dentures with implants offers some definite advantages:
Snap-in dentures are far more secure than those held in place by simple adhesives. This makes it possible to eat a variety of foods with ease.
Implants don't impede your ability to remove your denture. You can simply snap it in and out at your convenience.
Most patients do not need a new denture for stabilization. We can typically upfit your current appliance with no problems.
The implants used for denture stabilization are smaller than regular implants. This makes the procedure simpler and typically requires less healing time
At Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne, our ultimate goal is improving the lives of our patients.
