Affordable Dentures: Mini Implants Offer Many Options

Have you ever heard of The Unattainable Triangle? It’s a business concept that says your product can have two of these components—high quality, a fast process, or a low price—but never all three. For example, if you want a superior product right away, it will cost more money. Or, if you want something quick and cheap, it will be of low quality. In some cases, this concept proves to be true. But what if we told you there’s a way to replace your missing teeth effectively, quickly, and at a lower price, hitting all three sides of the triangle? With mini dental implants, high-quality, efficient, and affordable implant dentures are a reality. These innovative dentures offer several functional and financial benefits that can transform the denture experience!

Affordable Dentures: What Are the Options?

Affordable Dentures in Austin, TX | Mini Dental Implants | Dr. HallWhen replacing missing teeth with dentures, you can choose between older traditional dentures and more modern implant dentures.

Traditional Dentures

These removable dental appliances are likely what you picture when you imagine “dentures.” They come in both full and partial options. Full dentures replace all your teeth on top or bottom. They have a bulky plastic base that sits on your gums for stability and support. While they do provide some functionality and aesthetic appeal, it’s nowhere near what your natural teeth offer. Partial dentures are for patients with some remaining natural teeth because they connect to those teeth with metal or plastic brackets.

One big issue is that traditional dentures do nothing to stop jawbone resorption, which happens when you lose your teeth. Over time, this bone deterioration will cause your dentures to lose their fit and move around in your mouth while you eat and speak. While these dentures may be a fast and low-cost option, they lack the “high quality” aspect of The Unattainable Triangle.

Implant Dentures

We secure implant dentures directly to your jaw using dental implants or mini dental implants, and we can complete the entire process in as little as one day. These dentures provide far greater functionality and stability than traditional dentures because they use dental implants as anchor points. By providing the same stimulation to the jawbone as tooth roots, the implant screws stop your jawbone from deteriorating. As a result, they preserve your long-term jaw health and keep your facial structure intact.

Implant dentures come in several varieties, both removable and non-removable. In certain cases, we can convert an existing pair of removable dentures into an implant denture. Additionally, these prosthetics have a smaller plastic base—sometimes even no base—giving them a more natural look, feel, and function.

The Benefits of Implant Dentures

Replacing missing teeth with implant dentures offers numerous advantages over traditional denture options, including:

  • Restored chewing function: Missing teeth can make it difficult or impossible to enjoy your favorite foods. Dental implants restore your ability to chew properly, allowing you to maintain a nutritious diet.
  • Enhanced speech: Tooth loss can affect your speech, but dental implants help you pronounce words clearly by permanently filling the gaps in your smile.
  • Preserved bone health: Unlike traditional tooth replacement options like conventional dentures and dental bridges, implants stimulate your jawbone and prevent bone and tissue loss over time.
  • Improved self-confidence: A complete, stable smile can boost your self-esteem and help you regain confidence in your appearance.
  • More natural appearance: Dental implants help your replacement teeth look and feel more natural, allowing you to smile with confidence.

Types of Implant Dentures

Implant dentures come in different varieties which offer varying levels of removability, functionality, and durability:

  • Snap-on dentures: Sometimes called overdentures, these dentures snap onto 4-8 mini implants for improved stability over traditional dentures. You can remove them at night for cleaning, which offers the convenience of removable dentures with the functional benefits of implants.
  • Semi and non-removable roundhouse bridges: These roundhouse bridges look, feel, and function more like your natural teeth. They’re secured by 6-12 mini implants and are made from Zirconia, offering the most stable and durable solution possible.
