What Denture Options Do You Offer?
In the following video, Brent Bradford, DDS, delves into the range of denture solutions available at our clinic for complete tooth replacement.
For individuals who have lost all their teeth, there are a couple of denture options available:
These are designed to be held in place by the natural suction created by the moisture and saliva in your mouth. The upper denture covers the palate, while the lower one tries to cover as much gum tissue as possible to achieve stability. However, conventional dentures often depend on having sufficient saliva to remain secure.
Mini Implant Retained Dentures:
This is an advanced option where mini implants are used to anchor the dentures firmly in place. For the upper denture, an added benefit of mini implants is that the palate portion of the denture can be eliminated. This is particularly advantageous because it exposes the palate, allowing you to better taste food and feel its temperature.
Without the covering over the palate, your taste buds are not obstructed by the acrylic denture material. On the upper jaw, six mini implants are typically used, while on the lower, four are sufficient. Lower dentures can be especially troublesome as they tend to shift more due to bone loss over time.
Mini implants provide the retention needed to keep the denture stable, much like the roots of natural teeth do. They also help maintain the health of your jawbone by transmitting chewing forces to the bone, stimulating it and preventing further bone loss.
We encourage you to take advantage of our offer for a free consultation. During this visit, we’ll explore these options in detail and work together to find the best solution for your needs. Contact us to schedule your appointment and take the first step towards a comfortable and functional smile.
