Permanent Dentures Provide Superior Stability

If you’ve lost all your teeth and are currently edentulous, you’re likely considering your options for how to replace them. Some people want traditional dentures so they can easily remove their teeth at will, but those come with several different issues. Others want something more stable, so they opt for snap-on or semi-removable dentures, which are more secure but are still removable. However, some patients want to replace their teeth with a permanent denture option and all the benefits that come with it. Choosing permanent dentures means not worrying about your teeth being removed, sliding around, or falling out. For those who want their denture to be a “set it and forget it” prosthetic, permanent dentures are your best option.

The Issues With Removable Dentures

Permanent Dentures in Schaumburg. IL | Mini Dental ImplantsAny prosthetic that can be frequently removed, such as full dentures or partial dentures, carries with it the risk of loss or damage. An accidental bump off the table or a reckless grandchild can spell disaster for your dental prosthetic. A moment of forgetfulness can mean your dentures are lost, or you may leave the house without your teeth. With permanent dentures, there’s never any risk of leaving your teeth behind or accidental damage that can be costly and time-consuming.

Another problem with traditional dentures is that they lose their fit over time. Because they don’t replace your missing tooth roots, traditional dentures do nothing to prevent the deterioration of your jawbone. As the bone changes shape, your face begins to sag, and the dentures move or float inside your mouth. Dentures that slip and slide unexpectedly will make eating and speaking more challenging and can fall out of your mouth if you’re not careful.

Permanent Dentures With Dental Implants

Permanent dentures provide a much more solid and secure solution than traditional dentures. They eliminate the fear of dentures slipping during conversations or meals, boosting your confidence. Plus, they’re designed for long-term use, reducing the need for frequent replacements or adjustments. This means a much more comfortable fit and potential savings in the long run.

They have such a strong and stout reputation because they use dental implants, specifically mini dental implants, to secure your teeth directly to the jawbone. Permanent dentures use a zirconia roundhouse bridge to replace all your upper or lower teeth. Zirconia is a material ten times stronger than natural tooth enamel, so this prosthetic is built to last. With the stability of 8-10 mini implants supporting them, this implant denture is the most stable, powerful tooth replacement option available. Permanent dentures are the closest way to replicate the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth.

The Mini Implant Process

The mini implant process, which is the foundation of permanent dentures, is straightforward and efficient. Mini implants are a versatile tool, as they are often a viable option when the larger traditional implants are not.

  1. Consultation: Every mini implant procedure starts with a free consultation with Dr. Aristodemo. She’ll examine your mouth and take 3D digital X-rays to determine your implant placement and eligibility. She’ll also take an impression of your teeth to create your custom restoration.
  2. Placement: We’ll apply a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Next, Dr. Aristodemo will drill a tiny pilot hole and carefully secure the implant into your jawbone.
  3. Temporary restoration: While we wait for your custom restoration, we’ll give you a temporary set of teeth to use.
  4. Final restoration: Once the final prosthetic is ready, we’ll remove the temporary teeth and attach your custom restoration, giving you a secure, functional, natural-looking smile.
