Imagine driving an old car that shakes and rattles over every bump. You wouldn’t stick with that uncomfortable ride forever, would you? You’d likely upgrade to something smoother and more reliable. Why should it be any different when it comes to dentures? Many have tolerated loose and uncomfortable dentures for too long, thinking it’s just part of the deal. But just as you wouldn’t settle for an inadequate car, there’s no need to settle for a loose denture when a suitable replacement is within reach.

Today, the world of dental restoration is steering away from the insecurity of traditional dentures toward the stability and comfort of implant options. If you’re ready to shift gears and explore how implant dentures can transform your smile, the team at Scottsdale Dental & Facial Aesthetics is here to help.

Is It Time for a Denture Replacement?

Traditional dentures offer a way to address missing teeth but come with some challenges. While conventional dentures may fit snugly when they are first made, their fit inevitably changes over time. After teeth are lost, the jawbone begins to recede, altering the fit of the dentures, which simply rest on the jaw ridge. This change in shape causes the dentures to become loose and uncomfortable, leading to difficulty eating and speaking.

Many denture wearers turn to adhesives to improve stability, but these can be messy and unreliable. Additionally, the prosthetic’s frequent movement can cause sore spots in the mouth from friction.

To combat the loosening fit, denture wearers frequently have their prosthetic relined, a process that readjusts the denture’s base to the contours of the changing jaw. However, relining is not a one-time fix. As the jaw changes, these adjustments must be repeated, leading to ongoing costs and inconvenience.

Unfortunately, for all their worth in replacing missing teeth, traditional dentures bring complications that can often feel like swapping one set of problems for another.

Exploring the Benefits of Denture Replacement Options

Unlike traditional dentures that sit on top of the gums, implant dentures are anchored directly into the jawbone with dental implants. These implants act as sturdy roots for the dentures, providing a fixed foundation that allows the dentures to lock into place. This approach significantly alleviates many common problems associated with traditional denture options.

For one, implant dentures eliminate the risk of slipping or shifting. They also alleviate anxiety about dentures coming loose at inopportune moments. Additionally, implant dentures boost your ability to chew and enjoy meals comfortably. This upgrade widens your food choices and supports better nutrition. Plus, their snug fit means you can forget about using denture glue and relining.

Implant dentures are also vital for long-term bone health. The implants replace the missing tooth roots, providing essential stimulation to the jawbone that keeps it healthy. With implant dentures, you don’t have to worry about changes in your jawbone or facial structure since the jawbone maintains its volume and density.

Transforming Dentures With Mini Implants

If you want to permanently stabilize your dentures, finding the right implant solution is your next step. Our practice specializes in mini dental implants because we’re committed to solutions that truly prioritize what’s best for our patients. Mini dental implants are roughly the width of a toothpick and measure half the diameter of traditional implants. As a result, mini implants do not require the same space in the jawbone as traditional implants. This key difference makes them ideal for patients who have experienced bone loss, a common issue among long-term denture wearers.

You’re in capable hands at Scottsdale Dental & Facial Aesthetics, especially when considering alternatives to traditional dentures. Dr. Todd Shatkin, a pioneer in mini dental implants, has patented a minimally invasive technique for quicker, secure dentures. Alongside him, Dr. Mann, an implant specialist, ensures your transition to stable dentures is effective and efficient.

What sets mini dental implants apart is their unique ability to improve denture stability immediately. Their implantation process is straightforward and less time-consuming than that of traditional implants. In many cases, Dr. Shatkin and Dr. Mann can place mini implants in a single appointment. The procedure’s minimally invasive nature means reduced discomfort and quicker recovery times. If you’re looking for a more stable denture option that keeps patient well-being at the forefront, mini implant dentures are a great choice.
