Dentures and Loose Denture Solutions in Sterling Heights, MIEverybody knows what dentures are, but not everybody knows that dentures can be cosmetically engineered using the principles of anthropomorphics to create a beautiful smile. I have seen many denture wearers over the years, new to my office, who presented with one or more of the following deficiencies:

  • Over closed mouth resulting in creases at the corners of the mouth
  • Unsupported lips with the associated wrinkles
  • No visible teeth showing even when smiling
  • Teeth that are too big or too small
  • Midline is off center

These deficiencies and others can be eliminated in the vast majority of cases with the proper smile design techniques. Here at St. Apollonia Dental, we apply these cosmetic principles to every set of dentures we make.

Another fact that not everybody knows is that dentures don’t have to be loose or hard to chew with. Conventional dentures fit by suction on the upper jaw and by cheek and tongue pressure on the lower jaw. As such, the lower jaw is prone to movement and requires a certain knack, or skill, to keep in place. This is difficult, if not impossible, to master for many people. There is a solution to this.

Enter those “amazing minis,” the small diameter implants that can be placed in one day and provide instant stability to a loose denture. The mini implants can be utilized on existing dentures, or incorporated into new dentures. They hold the dentures in place so there is little to no movement. This provides increased chewing efficiency, increased security (dentures that don’t fall out), and improved speech. This simple, painless procedure can be a life changer for those who have struggled with loose or ill fitting dentures.
