Experienced Cosmetic Dentist Providing Affordable Dentures in Buffalo, NY
Losing your natural teeth can be very traumatic and can greatly affect your self-confidence, self-esteem, nutrition, and overall quality of a life. For many, the traditional options for replacing a full set of teeth have been dentures or implants. Both options come with advantages and disadvantages, but a new technique, mini dental implants, combines the benefits of both and offers a great alternative to teeth replacement. At The Aesthetic Associates Centre, Dr. Todd Shatkin and his staff provide patients with affordable dentures supported by dental implants. Implant supported dentures provide a long-term dependable and durable solution to missing teeth. We can replace a single tooth, or multiple teeth in a single visit and allow you to enjoy your favorite meals again, socialize without feeling self-conscious, and participate in all of your normal daily activities without worrying about your teeth falling out.
Mini dental implants combine the benefits of affordable dentures with the benefits of implants. Dentures have always been a low-cost way to replace lost teeth, but they can be uncomfortable and, because they are removable, can slip or fall out when chewing or talking. This can be embarrassing and often leave people feeling uncomfortable in social situations. Dental implants provide permanent replacement teeth that are strong and durable, but the cost is often higher than people can afford. This is where mini dental implants solve the problem.
Whereas a regular denture rests on the gum and jawbone and can be uncomfortable, mini dental implants allow our affordable dentures to snap directly into the implants that are placed in your jawbone. This provides a very natural long-term solution to replace your missing teeth.
Mini dental implants are smaller than traditional dentures and instead of a screw thread, they have a small ball on the end that comes through the gum. Dentures are then designed to snap onto these posts and are secured into place with O-rings. These posts keep your affordable dentures secure and in place when you are wearing them, but easy to remove when cleaning is necessary. While mini dental implants can be used in the upper jaw, they are typically used more for lower dentures.
If you are interested in affordable dentures with mini dental implants, contact Dr. Todd Shatkin to arrange a free consultation and learn about our flexible financing options. Don’t let finances get in the way of you enjoying your smile and improving your quality of life. We have several options available to make dentures affordable on any budget.
Also, unlike dentures and bridges that typically need to be replaced every few years, implant supported affordable dentures offer a more permanent solution. In addition, the fusion of the mini dental implants with the bone help you maintain your natural bone structure, keeping your smile relatively close to what it was before tooth loss.
