Implant Supported Dentures
Undoubtedly the lower dentures present the most difficulty for patients adjusting to dentures for the first time, as well as experienced denture wearers. It can be frustrating as you attempt to eat certain foods, or even to speak with confidence without fear that your lower teeth will begin to float in your mouth.
The denture stabilization system is a mini dental implant system that in most cases can be placed and attached to your lower denture in the same visit. There is no need for any incisions or stitches. Within one hour you can be on your way with a secure denture, able to eat and speak much more comfortably. Further, the mini implant system is much more affordable.
The mini implant system consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of the denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball, and the retaining fixture acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and hold the denture at a predetermined level of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue.
Placement of the implants is accomplished quickly and easily. The procedure generally takes 1 hour. Using a precise, controlled minimally invasive surgical technique, mini implants are placed into he jaw bone. The heads of the implants protrude from the gum tissue and provide a strong, solid foundation for securing dentures. It is one step procedure that involves minimally invasive surgery, no sutures nor the typical months of healing.
