What If I Have a Loose Denture?
In the following video, Brent Bradford, DDS, discusses the solutions we offer to enhance the fit and stability of loose or poorly fitting dentures.
Implants can significantly enhance the stability and comfort of dentures. For those with a lower denture, which is prone to movement over time, placing four mini implants can provide a secure foundation to anchor the denture. For the upper denture, six implants are commonly used for increased retention and stability.
The dentures have specialized housings containing rubber O-rings, which allow the denture to snap securely onto the implants. This creates a stable and comfortable fit, preventing the dentures from shifting or moving, which can be particularly bothersome with lower dentures.
I highly recommend to patients who are experiencing issues with a lower denture, or who will need one, to consider implant retention. It can greatly improve your quality of life by eliminating the discomfort and inconvenience of a loose-fitting denture.
To explore this option, we invite you to take advantage of our free consultation. During this appointment, we’ll perform a CT scan to assess the quality of your bone and discuss how implants could benefit you. Please contact us to schedule your visit and take the first step towards a more secure and comfortable denture solution.
