Ill-fitting dentures can be uncomfortable, loose, and they can make you want to hide your smile. That is why here at Flossophy Dental in Edmonton, AB, we offer implant-retained dentures. These dentures are stabilized in the mouth using mini dental implants, so they stay put and slow down bone degeneration.
Implant-retained dentures create a strong and stable base for dentures. The implants are inserted into the bone sockets, so the dentures will not only be solid, but bone degeneration is slowed down. This means that the dentures will fit well for a long time. In addition, many dentures are able to be made to fit them, so a patient will most likely be able to keep their current dentures.
To create this stable base, we insert four to six mini dental implants along the upper or lower gumline. Since the mini implants are about half the size of traditional-sized implants, there is no surgical procedure needed. This means the dentures are often able to be clipped in during the same day.
The dentures are made to easily clip in so that patients can take them in and out on their own. You will no longer have to worry about your dentures moving around when you eat, smile, talk, or laugh.
If you are looking for dentures you can feel confident in, implant-retained dentures may be what you need. To schedule an appointment with Flossophy Dental, call our Edmonton, AB office at (780) 306-9333 or visit our website, www.flossophydental.ca.
