Traditional dentures have a lot of problems for denture wearers. One of the most common problems is that they aren’t very secure. Lower dentures, especially, can be slippery to the point that they become uncomfortable or even painful. Commercials on television make you want to believe that you can put some denture goop (adhesives) on there and all of your woes will fade away. We have yet to see the adhesive that is able to accomplish this completely! We need a better solution, which is why we turned to mini-implants.
Mini-implants are just like regular implants except they are smaller in diameter. This allows us to use mini-implants for patients will less bone mass. These smaller dentures require less healing time, allowing us to utilize them for single day restorations! They work perfectly for snap on teeth, which is a spin on dentures that we think you will love! Especially if you are struggling with a lower denture that just doesn’t want to stay still!

We can place mini implants across the front of your lower jaw. These implants will have special fittings attached to the top that coordinate with fittings on your new lower denture. When it’s time to put your teeth in, you will simply snap them into place. No need for adhesives because these teeth aren’t going anywhere! You will be free to eat what you want and smile away, because you will have a secure lower denture to help you feel much more confident!
