Do you have loose uncomfortable dentures?
Stabilizing them with mini-implant dentures can be an excellent solution.
Your denture is held in place by narrow implants placed in the jaw. The denture snaps onto the implants in your jaw keeping the denture secure in your mouth, but allowing you to remove it when necessary.
The procedure involves checking your denture to confirm that it is suitable for use with mini-implants. Next we completely numb the area to make you comfortable. We make a shallow channel in the jaw for each implant, and then guide the implants through these channels into the jawbone.
We modify your denture by adding attachments that fit over the implants. Last, we snap the denture into place, check the fit and your bite, and your denture is ready for use.
The benefits of mini-implants include making the denture more stable, so you can chew and talk more easily. They are generally ready for use in just one or two appointments. We can often modify your existing dentures to fit over the implants. And the dentures are removable for easier cleaning and checkups.
