Are you tired of struggling with floating dentures? You’re not alone. In the Harrisburg, NC, area, many patients experience the inconvenience and discomfort of traditional dentures that don’t stay in place. If you’re struggling with loose dentures, there’s good news—mini dental implants are a reliable solution, offering stability and comfort to those plagued by floating dentures.
The Problem With Floating Dentures
Poorly fitting traditional dentures often cause the prosthetic to feel like it’s “floating.” By constantly shifting and sliding around in your mouth, loose dentures make eating difficult, affect speech clarity, and cause soreness to the surrounding gum tissue.
They can also shake one’s confidence, making social interactions and even smiling a source of stress. Who wants to have their dentures accidentally come loose while eating or speaking? Dental implants, specifically mini dental implants, provide a stable solution to these challenges.
Securing Floating Dentures With Dental Implants
Dental implants are metal posts inserted into the jawbone. They function as a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. For those struggling with floating dentures, implants offer a permanent solution. Dentures anchored to implants remain secure, eliminating the fear of slipping and sliding.
Mini dental implants provide an innovative solution. These implants are smaller than traditional implants but are equally strong. Dr. Ney can also place them closer together if needed, providing additional points of contact that enhance denture stability. Additionally, their smaller size makes placing mini implants a much less invasive procedure. Their minimal invasiveness enables quicker placement and faster recovery, making mini implant dentures an efficient option.
For unparalleled stability and functionality as well as a more natural look and feel than conventional dentures, implant dentures using mini dental implants are a great choice.
Can My Existing Dentures Be Converted Into Implant Dentures?
To transform traditional dentures into “snap-on” implant dentures, they must meet specific benchmarks regarding size, quality, and layout. The best way to see if your dentures meet these qualifications is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ney. He’ll be able to examine your mouth and see your dentures up close. Then, he can give you a better idea of your options moving forward.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?
Dental implants are suitable for most adults who struggle with floating dentures. The ideal candidate is in good general and oral health, with adequate bone in the jaw to support the implant. However, mini dental implants are ideal for those with bone loss. They can usually be implanted without a bone graft and have a much faster recovery time than traditional implants.
The Benefits of Dental Implants Over Traditional Dentures
- Stability and comfort: Unlike floating dentures, implants are anchored firmly, providing a stable base for your dentures. This stability translates into greater comfort, ease in everyday activities like eating and speaking, and a more natural look and feel than bulky traditional dentures.
- Preserves jawbone and facial structure: Floating dentures can lead to bone loss in the jaw over time. Dental implants, however, stimulate and preserve the jawbone just like your tooth roots did. This stimulation keeps the jaw healthy and maintains your facial structure.
- Enhanced confidence: With the security that dental implants provide, you can speak, eat, laugh, and smile with confidence, knowing your dentures won’t shift or fall out.
- Long-term solution: Dental implants are designed for long-lasting durability. They offer a long-term solution to the problem of floating dentures, making them a worthwhile investment in oral health and overall well-being.
