Lower dentures present the most difficulty to adjust to, even for experienced denture wearers. It can be frustrating to eat certain foods, or even to speak with confidence.
At Chang Dental Group, our dentists, Dr. Jenny Chang and Dr. Mario Gatti, ensure that you are as comfortable and confident as possible with the Denture Stabilization System. It is a mini dental implant system that in most cases can be placed and attached to your lower denture in the same visit. There is no need for any incisions or stitches. Within one hour you can be on your way with a secure denture, able to eat and speak much more comfortably. Even better, the Mini Implant System is much more affordable - in some cases 60-70% less expensive.
The Mini Implant System consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of the denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball, and the retaining fixture acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and hold the denture at a predetermined level of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue.
Placement of the implants is accomplished quickly and easily in a process performed in the dentist’s office. The procedure generally takes one hour. Using a precise, controlled, minimally invasive surgical technique, Mini Implants are placed into the jaw bone. The heads of the implants protrude from the gum tissue and provide a strong, solid foundation for securing dentures. It is a one step procedure that involves minimally invasive surgery with no sutures nor the typical months of healing.
