The lower denture presents the most difficulty for patients adjusting to dentures for the first time or even for 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 denture will begin to float in your mouth.
The Dental Implant Solution
We have a treatment procedure called a Denture Stabilization System, often referred to as Mini Dental Implants. Essentially it is a dental implant system that in most cases can be placed and attached to your denture in the same visit. Within one hour you can be on your way with a secure lower denture, and able to eat and speak much more confidently.
A Simple Dental Implant Procedure
The mini implant system consists of a miniature titanium implants that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture. Placement of the implants is accomplished quickly and easily in a process performed in the dentist's office. The procedure generally takes 1 hour. It is a one step procedure that involves minimally invasive surgery with no sutures nor the typical months of healing.
