Pair Dentures and Implants for a Winning Combination
There are so many things to consider when you are trying to decide how to improve your smile. We know the things that run through most of our patients’ minds when we first begin talking about how to change their smile from dentures to something more tolerable. Many of our patients tell us they are worried about costs, pain, and a fear of the unknown. Some solutions, like the One Day Smile Solution, may seem too foreign for some of our patients. There are so many things to consider when trying to make this decision, but we try to make it a bit clearer. One of our most popular procedures is the mini-implant procedure to stabilize the lower denture.
The lower dentures is extremely vulnerable to movement because the lower jaw moves. The upper jaw is connected to your skull and stays in one place. As you chew, talk, and smile, the lower jaw will wiggle and eventually get loose throughout the day. A loose denture is uncomfortable and can cause pain and sores to form. It’s important that you find a way to keep it secure. Maybe you’ve tried adhesives, but you probably found out pretty quickly that those adhesives weren’t going to completely secure your denture. It’s time for a better solution.
The Mini-Implant Solution
Rather than fight with adhesives, get a solution that actually works! Mini-Implants are just smaller titanium posts that we can place in low bone density areas. In order to secure your dentures, we use a bit of hardware on the implant and your denture so that when you put your dentures in, they will “snap” into place. You will feel an immediate difference! Your lower denture will be securely held in place, which will make you feel much more confident to eat, smile, and speak!
The mini-implant solution allows you to vastly improve your denture experience without breaking the bank. One jaw’s implants are about $4,000-$5,000, which is about ¼ of the cost of the One Day Smile Solution. You can probably see why many of our patients go for this solution that isn’t our most secure, but will greatly improve the denture experience.
