If you are constantly annoyed with clicking and sliding dentures whenever you are eating or speaking, Island Dental Associates has the solution you’ve been searching for – stabilizing your dentures with dental implants. Dentures are one of the two solutions for replacing missing teeth along with dental implants and mini dental implants. However, they can also be used for stabilizing your dentures and making them more secure in the process.
Problems Encountered With Loose Dentures
Like dental implants, dentures are used to improve your smile by replacing teeth that are missing, thereby restoring the natural appearance of your mouth and teeth. So whenever they are not secure, they become a source of annoyance and embarrassment. This is especially true where the lower dentures are concerned since they are the most prone to slipping when you are eating or speaking. Another problem is the ineffectiveness (and taste) of adhesives that are used to hold your dentures in place.
Denture Stabilization Benefits
The primary benefit of denture stabilization with implants is the amount of time involved in the process of securing them. This is especially true when mini dental implants are used to stabilize your dentures. We can usually complete the process within a few hours here at our Franklin Square, Long Island office. Additional benefits include:
- Allows for a better diet and improves overall nutrition by restoring proper chewing
- Eliminates the need for denture adhesives as well as the cost of purchasing them
- Improves your self-confidence, self-esteem, and speech
- Increases the level of comfort and reduces irritation of gum tissues
- The procedure is minimally invasive
- You can oftentimes utilize your existing dentures
We have found that patients notice an immediate improvement once we have stabilized their dentures with implants. By simply retrofitting your current dentures, they will sit more comfortably on the implant posts, thereby eliminated a great deal of discomfort and gum irritation. So as you can readily see, stabilizing dentures with implants or mini dental implants is a viable solution for that annoying clicking and slipping that oftentimes occurs.
When we stabilize your dentures with implants at Island Dental Associates, you will no longer have to worry about these issues and the problems they cause. Most importantly, we know how this procedure can improve your overall quality of life.
