Have you ever walked over a patch of ice and unexpectedly lost your footing? It takes you by surprise, and that instability sends a jolt of adrenaline as you attempt to avoid a fall. I’ve never met anyone who likes this feeling of slipping, but plenty of patients experience the same sensation from loose dentures. When your dentures lose their fit and begin to slip and slide around in your mouth, it can lead to that same uncomfortable, nervous feeling you get walking over that patch of ice—you know there’s a chance something will slip, you’re just not sure when. Luckily, there’s an easy way to stabilize your loose dentures once and for all. You’ll experience a better quality of life when you choose denture stabilization with mini dental implants.

Why Do Dentures Come Loose?

Denture Stabilization in Cleveland, TN | Mini Implants | Dr. BeardLosing our teeth and the corresponding tooth roots causes some changes in our oral health. The empty tooth sockets can be gathering places for bacteria, which can potentially lead to gum disease. Your remaining teeth will begin to shift and move, causing bite misalignment. However, the biggest change is that your jawbone isn’t being stimulated by the missing roots, which means it isn’t sending signals to your brain to keep that bone strong and healthy. That part of your jawbone and the surrounding tissue will slowly begin to deteriorate. This is what causes that “sunken face” that makes you look older than your natural age.

Since traditional dentures rely on their fit with your gums, they become more unstable as your jawbone changes shape. Before you know it, your dentures will start to move and slide around in your mouth while eating and speaking. Pretty soon, they’ll fall out of your mouth unexpectedly if you’re not paying attention, like how you slipped on that ice patch without warning. You need a better way to stabilize your dentures—you need mini dental implants.

Stabilizing Your Dentures With Mini Implants

Mini dental implants are tiny titanium posts acting as a solid base to attach replacement teeth or secure loose dentures. Their smaller size allows for a simpler and less invasive placement process than the larger traditional dental implants. This can be a major factor for patients with any type of dental anxiety. Their less invasive placement means that mini implants also have a shorter healing timeline, but one of their biggest advantages is that they can accept new teeth immediately after placement. This makes them perfect for patients who don’t want to wait for conventional implants to fully fuse with your jaw.

To stabilize your dentures, we’ll place four mini implants into the lower jaw or six into the upper jaw, which is a little softer. The denture prosthetic will have housings inserted and will be able to snap right onto the implants, creating a much more stable connection than traditional dentures. You can still remove them for cleaning, making these implant-retained overdentures a hybrid between removable dentures and implant dentures.

Benefits of Mini Dental Implants

Opting for mini dental implants, especially for denture stabilization, comes with several advantages:

  1. Minimally invasive: The procedure for placing mini dental implants is quick and straightforward, involving less discomfort and a shorter recovery time than traditional implants.
  2. Immediate improvement: Mini dental implants instantly enhance denture stability, enabling patients to enjoy a more functional and secure fit immediately.
  3. Short healing period: Patients are often surprised at how little soreness they feel afterward, which goes away in 48 hours or less. To fully fuse with the bone, mini implants require only 3-4 weeks, rather than the 3-6 months of larger implants.
  4. Affordability: The process associated with mini dental implants is generally more cost-effective, making this advanced dental solution accessible to a wider range of patients.
