What is implant denture stabilization?
A dental implant is made from a titanium alloy that is placed into your jaw bone ( a minimally invasive procedure, less so than a tooth extraction). It has an abutment attached that shows slightly above your gum tissue. A retaining housing is placed in and becomes part of your denture. The denture and abutment snap together and the denture is held firmly in place!
DENTAL IMPLANTS HAVE THE HIGHEST SUCCESS RATE OF ANY SURGICALLY IMPLANTED DEVICE!
Common myths about implant stabilization:
1. It cost thousands & thousands of dollars!
WRONG – They are not expensive
2. It takes months to do!
WRONG – Implants are placed and loaded in one visit!
3. Surgery is difficult!
WRONG – Placement is quick and easy using local anesthesia
Loose dentures are a common and frustrating problem for many denture wearers. It is often embarrassing.
If the anatomical structures permit, a retentive suction seal can be achieved on the upper denture. This is heavily dependent on the shape of the palate, location of the muscle and soft tissue attachments to the jawbone, and the shape of the tissues of the soft palate.
Lower dentures are much more difficult to stabilize because of the anatomical features of the lower jaw, floor of the mouth and tongue. The lower jaw is double hinged and everything that attaches to it or the tongue is a movable muscle or soft tissue that tends to lift a lower denture every time they move. These tissues move during eating, swallowing, smiling and speaking. This is why lower dentures are difficult to wear.
