Implant Retained Dentures: What are they and what are the main benefits?
Mini Implant Dentures
This Mini Dental Implants (MDI) are made of titanium, which is the strongest material available in the market. The head of this MDI has a ball in the top, at the edge of the implant. This ball shaped edge helps to retain or ‘anchor’ a device, such as a denture, with special rubber O-Rings or housings.
When the denture rest over the MDI it gets snapped over the ball shaped implant and rests gently over the gums creating a steady and strong bite.
All the MDI’s used at this dental clinic are imported and FDA approved. It is a minimally invasive procedure, it takes about an hour to set 12 mini dental implants in your jawbone. The mini dental implants have a ‘self tapping’ design and helps to anchor a fixed bridge or Snap On Denture (Palateless denture)
The reality is: Common dentures will never fit properly, in your mouth or in your life.
There is no point of comparison between mini dental implants vs dentures. Common dentures are an old known tale for many people since just in the United States, there are approximately 50 MILLION people that are lacking of one or several teeth and struggle on a daily basis with prosthetic devices.
Probably a large number suffer the typical discomfort that always comes along with loose or ill-fitting dentures. It is common to know that many denture wearers avoid any social engagements as a result of being unable to use them properly.
Common dentures usually cause disagreeable breath, since some food gets trapped under the denture.
Lower dentures almost never fit properly since they usually become loose due to the bone density or gum irritations. Upper dentures usually hold a bit better due to the suction made over the palate, however this will reduce the taste of your food.
Denture wearers often complain about sores and experience some pain when chewing. Messy adhesives seem to become then, the only option for these people causing usually stomach problems.
