Dentures on Mini-Implants: The Ultimate in Denture Stabilization

Dentures are a great option for when you have lost many of your teeth and you want to have a great smile again, but they aren’t always a pleasure to deal with.

From dealing with sticky denture glues and pastes to dentures that have been warped over time and aren’t fitting properly anymore; by replacing your old dentures with dentures on mini-implants, you will gain a tremendous improvement in your quality of life.

Read on to learn what mini-implants are and how they work, as well as how they are the best option for denture stabilization and replacing your worn out, old dentures.


What Are Mini-Implants?

Mini-implants get their name from being smaller than traditional implants, however, they are just as effective. Unlike traditional implants, mini-implants do not need to be completely embedded into your jawbone. They are usually made up of a titanium post with a ball on the end which is embedded in your jaw, then a socket that attached the denture to the post. These titanium posts are almost as thin as a toothpick.

Titanium is a metal that can be integrated easily into your body, so this post used to attach the dental implant will easily mimic the movement of a natural tooth. Dentures on mini-implants are a long-term solution, and unlike regular dentures, they are made to remain in place firmly so you won’t have to worry about it coming loose or slipping at all.

Another major benefit of having dentures on mini-implants is that these can help to preserve your facial features and jawbone.


Denture Stabilization

Dentures on mini-implants are considered the gold standard when looking at different denture stabilization techniques. Essentially, mini-implants can act as long-term support for your dentures.

Throughout history, dentures have been secured to the jaw by glues and pastes and the owner being extremely careful of what they eat and how they handle their dentures. Constantly worrying about your dentures slipping or falling out is not a great way to live, which is why getting dentures on mini-implants should be your first choice.

Here at Walkinstown Dental Studio, we have seen a huge success rate when mini-implants are used especially for denture stabilization.
