Laugh, Talk, Live with Comfort and Confidence!
Is your loose denture causing you to:
- miss out on life’s simple pleasures?
- miss eating your favorite foods?
- be afraid to laugh, smile or speak in public?
What is implant denture stabilization?
- Miniature titanium alloy implants – act like the root of a tooth
- A retaining housing that is fixed into your denture
- Your denture fits onto the implant head and snaps into place.
Common myths about implant stabilization:
1. It cost thousands & thousands of dollars!
WRONG – They are not expensive
2. It takes months to do!
WRONG – Implants are placed and loaded in one visit!
3. Surgery is difficult!
WRONG – Placement is quick and easy using local anesthesia
Providing Implant Stabilization for Overdentures
Loose dentures are a common and frustrating problem for many denture wearers. It is often embarrassing.
If the anatomical structures permit, a retentive suction seal can be achieved on the upper denture. This is heavily dependent on the shape of the palate, location of the muscle and soft tissue attachments to the jawbone, and the shape of the tissues of the soft palate.
Lower dentures are much more difficult to stabilize because of the anatomical features of the lower jaw, floor of the mouth and tongue. The lower jaw is double hinged and everything that attaches to it or the tongue is a movable muscle or soft tissue that tends to lift a lower denture every time they move. These tissues move during eating, swallowing, smiling and speaking. This is why lower dentures are difficult to wear.
One of the greatest advantages of modern dentistry is implant stabilization of dentures!
