Denture stabilization is an exciting new technology available in dentistry which can eliminate all the traditional issues associated with having dentures. Anyone who has dentures and has had to endure them sliding around inside the mouth while speaking or eating, will know how much of an embarrassment that can be, not to mention the inconvenience of it. Through denture stabilization, your denture can be locked firmly into place so you never have to worry again about slippage or movement.
The self-confidence you get from denture stabilization and not having to worry about slippage will literally make you a new person. Whereas before, you may have tried to hide your smile, and you may have been unable to speak clearly, now you'll have no such problems and all those issues will simply evaporate. It's not much of an exaggeration to say that you'll have a new lease on life, and you'll enjoy a great many of your normal activities much more than in the past, simply because you can be confident that your new teeth won't let you down.
In terms of what you can expect, the surgery which is necessary to install the titanium inserts is only minimally invasive, which means it will not cause major disruption in your mouth. It will still be necessary to numb the area where implants are installed, so at least a local anesthetic will be used. Patients who are more squeamish may require something more powerful, such as a general anesthetic. Once the surgery has been completed, you will only need enough recovery time in the office to allow the anesthetic to wear off, and then you can resume your normal activities. It will be several months before the fusion between the titanium implant and your jawbone is accomplished, and when that process has completed, it will be possible to snap your dentures into place on the titanium anchors.
If you take your oral health seriously and you have dentures or you're thinking about getting them, chances are you're a good fit for denture stabilization. All that's really necessary is that you have some good jawbone where the implants can be installed, because the titanium implants must be firmly anchored to the jaw. In some cases, we might even be able to restore enough jawbone to make the procedure successful, so by all means consult with us to see if you are a good fit for the procedure.
