Denture Stabilization / Mini Implants

Denture Stabilization / Mini Implants

Why Choose Denture Stabilization?

As you wear your dentures everyday, the structure supporting your soft tissues will gradually decrease. As your soft tissues contact your dentures, these tissues will also decrease over time. This causes a number of problems with your dentures – discomfort, constant adjustment and eating/speaking issues. But with denture stabilization using mini implants, you can enjoy stable, fully functioning dentures in only one hour.

Implant stabilization:

  • Provides needed support for correct speaking, chewing and smiling.
  • Prevents facial shape changes caused by jaw bone recession.
  • Provides an excellent alternative for those who do not want to pay for individual implants.
Mini Implants

Mini implants consist of titanium posts that act as the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture incorporated into the base of your 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 holds the denture at a predetermined leve of force. When placed, the denture rests gently on your gum tissue, allowing for mobility while withstanding lifting forces. Once the implants are placed, your dentures will be attached and adjusted. In one quick, easy procedure, all the discomforts of dentures can be eliminated.
