Dentures are a great way to restore an entire arch of teeth. A quality set of full dentures can give a patient an amazing smile. However, some patients have problems with their dentures staying in place. They may wish that they could enjoy better stability and strength so they can enjoy all their favorite foods. Although many patients use dental adhesives, they may not be strong enough. Patients who are struggling with the placement and stability of their dentures may consult Dr. Levenson, of Levenson Smile, to find out if there is an effective, affordable way to improve the functionality of their dentures.
Dr. Levenson, of Worcester, is proud to offer mini dental implants for patients who are unhappy with the stability of their dentures and want more strength and retention for better chewing and biting efficiency. Mini dental implants are smaller and more affordable for patients who want to stabilize their dentures, and dentures can be used immediately after placement with these implants.
Dr. Levenson, our implant specialist, consults with patients considering denture stabilization with mini dental implants and discusses the benefits that they can provide. A thorough examination is completed to determine a patient’s candidacy for this procedure, and assists in planning the placement of the implants in the jawbone. This procedure is minimally invasive, compared to the process of receiving standard dental implants. Dr. Levenson provides local anesthesia for the placement, and patients can enjoy the benefits of the implants after just one appointment. Mini dental implants do not require the long healing time that is associated with conventional implants, which require the process of osseointegration to occur before treatment can be completed.
