Denture Stabilization

Stabilizing dentures with implants is a popular choice for individuals who experience challenges with removable dentures. While removable dentures are an effective solution for missing multiple teeth, some people encounter issues that make wearing dentures uncomfortable or inconvenient. Problems may include discomfort, heightened gag reflex, speech difficulties, and/or the need to adapt eating habits. Loose or ill-fitting dentures can also affect dental occlusion (bite), leading to a decrease in retention and patient satisfaction, particularly for lower dentures. By using dental implants to stabilize dentures, these issues can be addressed, providing a more secure and comfortable fit for the dentures and improving overall oral function.

Advantages: Implant-supported dentures offer several advantages over traditional dentures. They can be used for both the upper and lower jaw, providing stability without the need for adhesive. This eliminates discomfort and allows patients to enjoy their normal activities without limitations. One of the key benefits is the restoration of a natural smile. The implants integrate with the gum, ensuring a secure fit that does not loosen over time. With implant-supported dentures, you can regain confidence in your smile and enjoy long-term stability and comfort.

Process: It all begins with the placement of multiple titanium screws into the jawbone, which serve as support for the denture. Adequate healing time is allowed for the surrounding tissues to integrate with the implants, ensuring a secure attachment. This allows the denture to remain in place, even while eating challenging foods. The number of implants required depends on the extent of tooth replacement needed. Once the procedure is complete, patients often find that the dentures feel like their natural teeth, causing no discomfort and easily forgotten.
