Dentures

For some patients, implant support for their dentures is necessary or desired to hold the denture in place allowing for more natural function of the teeth. Dr. Neelam will tailor a comprehensive treatment plan specific to your individual needs.

 

Whether you require a full or partial set of dentures, you can rely on Dr. Neelam to create a solid, comfortable, and natural looking dentures, designed just for you.

 

Mini Implant Dentures:

 

No Small Wonder!
Imagine visiting your dentist in the morning, having a mini-implant system placed in just a few hours, and then enjoying lunch with a friend at your favorite restaurant. During your relaxing lunch, you eat comfortably, laugh, and talk with confidence as your new denture are securely and firmly held in place.

 

The Life Care MDI System is also referred to as the mini implant system (1.8mm in diameter), developed to provide greater denture stability for patients who can’t withstand conventional implant surgery, who don’t have enough bone to allow for full-sized dental implants, or who are in the process of changing from one prosthetic system to another. The MDI System consists of a miniature titanium implant that functions as a prosthetic tooth root and a retaining fixture installed into the base of your denture. When in place, the denture gently rests on the gum, and the implant fixtures allow for tiny movements, while withstanding natural lifting forces. MDI placement is a one-step procedure that involves minimally invasive surgery and no sutures. Healing time is shorter than typical denture placement procedures.
