Today, we’re excited to share a story about the exciting journey of mini dental implant retained dentures as a denture alternative for older adults.
As we age, it’s not uncommon to experience tooth loss or to struggle with ill-fitting dentures. These issues can not only affect our appearance and self-confidence, but they can also impact our ability to eat and speak properly. That’s where mini dental implant retained dentures come in!
Our patient, Linda, was a 68-year-old woman struggling with loose-fitting dentures for years. She was tired of the constant slipping and sliding and was ready for a more secure and comfortable solution. That’s when she came to us for a consultation about mini dental implant retained dentures as a denture alternative.
At first, Linda was a little nervous. However, Dr. Shatkin and our team of experienced cosmetic dentists assured her that mini dental implant retained dentures are a safe and effective solution for older adults. These dentures are held in place by small titanium implants that are placed into the jawbone, providing a secure and stable base for the dentures.
The process for getting a denture alternative like mini dental implant retained dentures is relatively simple. First, we performed a thorough evaluation to ensure that Linda was a good candidate for the procedure. Next, we placed the titanium implants into her jawbone using a minimally invasive technique.
Lastly, our lab created her new custom snap-in dentures according to her specific wants and needs. Since we have our own dental lab here in Buffalo, we are able to customize the look, color, shading, feel, and overall aesthetic without having to worry about any information being lost in translation by using a third-party dental lab.
Having our own dental lab also allows us to provide our denture alternatives much faster than most dental practices, allowing Linda to walk out of our office the same day with a new set of immediate dentures and a new lease on life!
Linda was amazed by the difference that her new mini dental implant retained dentures made. She no longer had to worry about her dentures slipping or sliding, and she could eat and speak with confidence. Linda was also thrilled with the natural-looking appearance of her new smile.
