Denture Stabilization – Schenectady, NY • Capital District

Keeping Your Teeth Securely in Place

Traditional dentures simply rest on top of the gums. Natural suction or a mild adhesive helps them to remain in place. However, many people find that their prosthetic teeth often tend to slip around in their mouth when they are speaking or enjoying hearty foods. Not only are such slips embarrassing, but they can also be uncomfortable. Fortunately, our team may be able to help your teeth stay right where they belong via denture stabilization in the Capital District.

What Is Denture Stabilization?

Denture stabilization involves the use of dental implants. Dental implants are small titanium cylinders, sometimes referred to as posts, that we insert into the jawbone. With just a few implants, placed at precise, strategic locations, we can provide an incredibly sturdy base for your prosthetic teeth that prevents them from slipping out of place.

Benefits of Denture Stabilization

A few of the most outstanding advantages of denture stabilization include:

  • You will be able to enjoy a greater variety of foods
  • Dental implants stimulate the jawbone and prevent it from losing volume and mass
  • Since implants prevent changes to the jawbone’s shape, your dentures will continue to fit well for many years
  • You may experience heightened confidence in social situations
  • Implant-supported dentures are generally smaller and more comfortable than their traditional counterparts

How Does the Process Work?

First, your dentist will perform a thorough examination to determine whether you are a candidate for dental implants. If you are, you’ll undergo a minimally invasive dental implant placement surgery. After your body has had time to recover from the surgery, you will receive a beautiful, comfortable, and long-lasting implant-supported denture.

Types of Stabilized Dentures

There are a few types of removable implant-retained dentures. For example, you may have a ball-retained prosthetic, which has ball-shaped attachments on the bottom that snap onto concave recesses atop the dental implants. Bar-retained dentures, on the other hand, are held in place via a small metal bar that connects the dental implants.

It is also possible that you will receive an implant-retained denture that is permanently screwed onto your dental implants and only removed when you visit us for professional care.

Why Are Dentures Important?

Having secure, well-fitted dentures is important for numerous reasons:

  • Dentures support your facial structure and help you maintain a youthful appearance
  • Teeth are part of your body’s digestive process; without the ability to chew thoroughly, you could miss out on key nutrients
  • Without dentures, you may find that your ability to clearly enunciate words is limited
