“Eating is such a hassle! Will I ever be able to eat steak, bite into an apple or corn on the cob again?”
Not only does the inability to chew affect your daily life, it can also lead to discomfort. If your dentures are causing you to have difficulty chewing, please visit us. Over time, this can lead to more serious issues below the surface of your gums, and if left untreated, can be irreversible in the future.
Mini-implants: Mini implants are inserted into the jawbone to help retain and stabilize dentures. This is an outpatient procedure that can be accomplished in one visit. This is an extremely effective solution for patients with little jaw bone left – it can literally change lives! Do not be fooled by the word mini; it is a great solution when it can be performed and it usually takes more mini implants to do the job of the standard implant, so cost savings are not as dramatic as some advertisements make you believe.
Standard Implants: Placement of a select number of dental implants can significantly improve quality of life! Typically the more implants placed the more life-like the denture teeth will fit in place. Denture teeth can be attached by removable snaps at will (snap-in teeth) or be placed in a more fixed fashion and not be removable (solid teeth).
As a current denture wearer you will experience a life changing event with the aid of dental implants. You will be able to smile, talk and chew once again with pain-free confidence!
