Learn How Denture Stabilization with Mini Dental Implants Can Restore Your Bite
Traditional dentures are a popular and effective way to restore missing teeth. However, many patients dislike their dentures, as they can become uncomfortable and slip out of place while speaking, eating, yawning, or coughing. Furthermore, traditional dentures don’t address the jawbone deterioration that occurs when you lose teeth. Dr. Seerat Mann addresses the problems of traditional dentures for patients in Scottsdale, AZ, with denture stabilization. Using mini dental implants, Dr. Mann can protect your jawbone, restore your smile, and give you the stability to stop worrying about your dentures. If you are sick of dentures that fall out when you eat or move around in your mouth, call today for a free consultation to learn about the benefits of denture stabilization with implant retained dentures.
Why Do Dentures Become Unstable?
When patients first receive their dentures, they typically fit very well. However, they tend to loosen and move around inside the mouth over time. The weakened fit is due to jawbone deterioration.
When you lose teeth, the roots of those teeth disappear from the jawbone. As a result, the part of the jaw that holds the teeth in the mouth, the alveolar bone, stops receiving stimulation, causing the body to determine that it doesn’t need the jaw bone and begin breaking it down.
In the first three months after losing an adult tooth, up to 25% of the jawbone begins to deteriorate. Patients can lose up to 50% of their jawbone in the first six months. Unfortunately, traditional dentures accelerate this process.
When the jawbone breaks down, it compromises the fit of your dentures, allowing them to slip and shift.
What Is Denture Stabilization?
The denture stabilization procedure that Dr. Mann performs involves placing mini implants in the jawbone to halt bone deterioration and restore much-needed stability to the dentures.
Denture stabilization combines the affordability of traditional dentures with the long-lasting stability of dental implants. Also known as snap-on dentures or fix-on-six dental implants, implant retained dentures provide a permanent solution to loose or ill-fitting dentures. You can also say goodbye to sticky adhesives.
How Does Denture Stabilization Work?
Denture stabilization at The Mini Dental Implant Center of America in Scottsdale begins with a free consultation. Dr. Mann will determine if your current dentures are in good condition and will work well with implants and explain how mini implants can stabilize your dentures.
If she decides that the procedure is right for you, she’ll schedule an installation appointment, at which time she’ll place implants into the arch of your jaw and add snap-on attachments to your current dentures. These attachments work with the mini implants to firmly hold the dentures in place.
You’ll still be able to remove your dentures for cleaning and care, but they’ll sit more firmly in your arch. As a result, you’ll be able to leave the adhesives behind and enjoy a stronger, more stable bite that allows you to eat foods you couldn’t with traditional dentures.
On top of that, the implants will mimic your teeth’s roots, stimulating the alveolar bones to halt jawbone deterioration.
