Traditional dentures can often become loose, causing chewing and speaking problems. But with lock-in dentures from your Dental Care at Prairie Crossing dentist, stability problems are not a concern. With a simple procedure, we can create dentures that “lock in,” using a customized combination of holding caps and snap-on components.
Lock-in dentures consist of a miniature titanium implant post and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture. In the process,
- The implant posts are surgically placed in your gums, acting as the roots of your teeth.
- The posts have a ball-shaped head which snaps firmly into the retaining fixture in the bottom your customized denture.
- When seated into place, the denture rests gently on the gum tissue.
- Now you have a secure denture that allows the same feel and function of normal teeth, without the need for messy, irritating dental adhesive!
