What If My Denture Is Loose?

In this video, Dr. Robert Harvey explains how mini dental implants can stabilize loose dentures, enhancing comfort and functionality.

If you’re experiencing issues with a loose, traditional denture and would prefer to continue using dentures, mini dental implants offer an excellent solution to stabilize them. This technique has been used effectively for many years to secure both existing and new dentures.

Here’s how it works:

1. Placement of Mini Dental Implants: We begin by placing several mini dental implants in the jaw. These implants are small and minimally invasive, making them a suitable option even for patients who may have less bone density.

2. Integration with Dentures: Inside your denture—whether it’s your current one or a new set—are special housings equipped with little rubber o-rings. These o-rings are designed to snap onto the mini dental implants.

3. Locking Mechanism: Once the denture is positioned over the implants, the o-rings lock it into place. This locking mechanism drastically reduces the movement of the denture, securing it firmly whether it’s an upper or lower set.

This system transforms the denture-wearing experience. If you’ve struggled with dentures that slip, cause sore spots, or make eating difficult, stabilizing them with mini dental implants can eliminate these problems. The result is a more comfortable and functional denture that allows you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

We perform this procedure almost daily, helping countless individuals regain their ability to eat comfortably and feel like themselves again. If you’re interested in exploring how mini dental implants can improve your denture experience, we encourage you to come in for a consultation. We’re here to help you achieve a secure, stable smile that enhances your quality of life.
