Information on Lower Dentures

There are two different types of dentures, full and partial. Full dentures are those who have lost or had removed all their teeth from the upper or lower jaw. Partial dentures are for those who still have remaining healthy teeth. The denture can be applied to both the upper and the lower jaws. Dentures have come a long way in the past 10 years. A commonly used denture technique involves using mini dental implants to secure the dentures to the gum line.

Mini Dental Implants for Lower Dentures

Mini Dental Implants have proven to be not only affordable, but superior in stabilizing your dentures. Here are some reasons supporting this fact.

  • The dental implants are made from titanium which is extremely strong and is naturally accepted by the body.
  • Mini Dental Implants provide excellent stability on the lower jaw as where other methods have a tendency to fail.
  • If there happens to be not enough bone density in the lower jaw there is bone grafting procedures available. This will allow for the proper amount of bone to be present to secure the implant.

Other ways to secure Lower Dentures

Although using mini dental implants to secure your lower dentures are extremely safe effective there are other ways. For the purpose of education we want to make sure you understand all of your options.

  • Sometimes, a band like thin tissue extension is attached between the cheek and the jaw ridge. This strip gets active when the person is chewing or eating. This is simply something to offer stability. However, you can get rid of this extension by using implants for a permanent solution.
  • Generally, the bone in your jaw is lost over time and this lessens the bone profile of Alveolar ridge. The space between the ridge and the lip increase with this loss of bone. However, you can extend the vestibule through surgery and pull muscles to hold the attachment strongly.
  • Sometimes, the alveolar ridge is built up through surgery. Different gum tissues and elements are included to increase the height and bulk of the ridge. The entire process is called alveolar ridge augmentation.
  • Metal implants can be implanted and the dentures are connected to them in different ways to offer them a better grip. This is the traditional and more expensive way to secure lower dentures.

As we have discussed there are several different ways to secure dentures to your lower jaw. Mini Dental Implants simply offer proven results without affecting your budget. Once again it is very important to contact a dentist in order to evaluate your specific situation.
