How Dental Implants Can Stabilize Your Floating Lower Denture

Denture instability can be a common source of discomfort and embarrassment for people who wear dentures. Floating dentures, which are not anchored to the jawbone, can be especially unstable since they move around and can easily slip out of place. Fortunately, there is an effective solution that can fix the instability of your floating lower dentures and improve your overall comfort, speech, and eating! 

Dental implants are an increasingly popular solution for people with an ill-fitting floating lower denture. They offer a permanent solution to stabilize an existing denture, providing a secure fit that won’t slip or cause discomfort. 

How do dental implants work with dentures? 

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone. The procedure is typically done under local anesthesia and involves making a small incision in the gum tissue before the implants are placed. After the implant is placed, the area is closed and a healing period of several months is needed before the denture is stabilized with the implant. Once the implant has healed, a metal bar is placed over the implants and a denture is snapped onto this bar. This provides a secure fit, making it much easier to eat, speak, and smile without worrying about the denture shifting or coming loose. The dentures are also easy to remove for cleaning, allowing for regular oral hygiene maintenance. 

Dental implants are a great long-term solution for people with a floating lower denture. They provide a secure fit that won’t slip or cause discomfort and make it easier to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. The implants are also a permanent solution and do not need to be replaced like a traditional denture. 

Floating dentures can cause discomfort, embarrassment and other issues when they shift and slip around in your mouth. Finding an effective solution to address their instability can help to reduce these issues and improve the overall comfort of your dentures. If you’re looking for a way to secure your lower denture and regain your confidence, dental implants could be the answer for you.
