The Floating Dentures Solution: Mini Dental Implants

Floating Dentures in Wayne, NJ | Mini Dental Implants | Dr. Fine

When we think of “floating,” it’s often in a positive way: floating on a cloud, floating along, or whatever floats your boat. These are all common phrases that elicit feelings of peace and contentment. However, dealing with floating dentures can be anything but a calm, positive experience. Imagine trying to enjoy a hearty laugh, bite a crisp apple, or carry on a conversation, but you can feel your dentures moving inside your mouth. The frustration is real. If you have loose dentures, you’re not alone.

Did you know that nearly 20% of people over 65 have lost all their teeth? 41 million Americans wear dentures to help them regain proper oral function, but many of these individuals struggle with the issue of floating dentures. Thankfully, there’s an innovative, streamlined solution that provides a stable base to secure your floating dentures—denture stabilization with mini dental implants.

The Frustrations With Floating Dentures

Floating Dentures in Wayne, NJ | Mini Dental Implants | Dr. FineWhile considered a tried-and-true solution for complete tooth loss, traditional dentures often come with unique problems—the biggest of which is stability. We start to refer to them as floating dentures when they move around in the mouth, causing discomfort, irritating the gums, and making eating or speaking a challenge.

This movement happens for a few reasons. For one, traditional dentures are stabilized only by the gum ridge—or sometimes by messy adhesives, which may stabilize the denture temporarily. Two, conventional dentures do nothing to prevent further bone or tissue loss after the teeth are removed or lost. Over time, the shape and density of the jaw change, causing dentures to lose their grip. Third, traditional dentures are always being removed and reinserted, increasing the chance for loss or damage and further affecting their fit inside the mouth.

Dental Implants Can Stabilize Floating Dentures

Dental implants, especially mini dental implants, are the modern fix for the floating dentures dilemma. Think of mini dental implants as tiny but powerful anchors that hold your dentures firmly in place. They ensure your dentures fit snugly, feel comfortable, and function more like natural teeth.

The best part? Mini implants have a much more straightforward placement procedure than the larger traditional implants. The placement is quick, simple, and doesn’t require multiple visits. The procedure doesn’t even require an incision to place these titanium posts. Instead, Dr. Fine will make a tiny pilot hole through the gums, a process that is painless thanks to a local anesthetic.

The Mini Implant Advantage

Denture stabilization with mini implants offers several advantages over traditional dentures and conventional dental implant options.

  • Improved stability: Mini implants are secured directly into the jawbone, providing a firm and stable connection. Their small size—less than 3 mm thick—makes them a great option for patients who’ve already lost some jawbone density.
  • Streamlined procedure: For eligible patients, Dr. Fine and his experienced team can complete the entire mini implant process in a single visit. Dr. Fine has decades of experience, and our practice is proud to be the Mini Dental Implant Center of America in Wayne, NJ. When you choose our practice, you can trust that you’re in good hands.
  • Faster recovery: Because of their small size and easy installation, recovery from a mini implant procedure is quick. Most patients can return to their normal routines in 24-48 hours.
  • Better jawbone health: Mini implants use a single-piece titanium design, discouraging the bacterial growth in the connection point of the two-piece traditional implants. They also act as artificial tooth roots, stimulating the jaw to prevent further bone and tissue loss.
  • Lower cost: Placing mini implants more quickly and easily means the process costs about half as much as traditional implants.

We offer different varieties of implant dentures that use mini dental implants. There are removable snap-on overdentures or the semi-removable Fix-on-Six® option. A permanent, non-removable roundhouse bridge is the most stable and functional option. In certain cases, depending on your denture size and quality, we can convert existing traditional dentures into overdentures that attach to these mini implants. At your free consultation, Dr. Fine will help you review the options and pick the best choice for your needs.
