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.
