Mini implants in mandible

I have 3 mini implants in mandible. I had poor bone mass so minis had to be used. They are spaced and placed in front middle, and to side of front one on each side. they are intec mdi o ball size 2.4 x 10. The bottom denture that attaches with the o ring? does not fit properly.

I was wondering if an implant support bar could be attached to these implants which would make it fit better, it rocks back and forth and becomes loose with talking or eating. Just doesn't fit right. It was done in Georgia in april 2009. It has never fit right. I know they would fit better if there was more surface to attach to like a bar.

I have a permanent denture with 6 maxilary implants on top. I had bone deteriation and had bone grafts there.

Thank you for your time and answers.

Dentures will not stay in place on the implants

by Tom
(Dunwoody, GA 30338)

About 12 months ago my brother, who is somewhat mentally impaired, had all his teeth removed because of gum disease. We had quality dentures made and found the top worked fine but the bottoms would not stay in. We checked on implants and discovered that he only had enough bone mass for two implants on the front of his lower gum about two inches apart - front of mouth.

The implants were done about 8 months ago. The problems is that the dentures will not stay in place on the implants. The bottom denture keep coming off when he tries to eat. We have tried using a paste like Fix A Dent to go along with the implants to help keep them in. Still does not work.

We have gone back to the medical college in Augusta, GA several times. They have replaced the housing and have put in the strongest inserts in the housing (white)several times. Just today, they said there is nothing that can be done. He needs more implants which cannot be done because of not enough bone mass. They basically said they were done in trying to solve the problem.

He cannot eat properly and is loosing weight. Is there anything we can do? Are there different types of post or housing? Can we glue the existing dentures to the post. They say no because it will lead to gum disease. Can the post be retrofitted for some type of screw in devise.

Is there a solution.

Denture placement problem

I have trouble getting the denture in and out. The dentist took them out and he used force. It really hurt. He said I'm just going to have to do it. Is there some tool that would help with this or some method or tips to help.

Mini dental implant dentures

by zski

I have been wearing dentures since I was 16 yrs. old and am now 52. I have no problems with my dentures but I am considering a mini dental implant on the top and bottom to stop any further bone loss in my upper and lower jaw.

Will the mini implant system achieve this?
Thank you for your help.

Implants placed in lower jaw

by Mr. Attila Suhajda

I had 5 implants placed in lower jaw with 6 horizontal "bridges" to hold the lower denture.
When I bite into a sandwich the whole denture comes loose. There is also a lot of food accumulation between the denture and gums.

There are only 4 clips on the inside of the denture. What could be the problem. Also I get bleeding from the lower gums when I brush. I stopped using the denture and the bleeding stopped.

Use my own upper denture to do the implant

by Rachael Tobeck

Is it possible to use my own upper denture to do the implant on? I like the denture design just not the plate covering the roof of my mouth. I can't make the adjustment after a few years now.

Thanks

Denture Locator colors

I have two locators on my bottom dentures. They are fine for about 3 to4 months but then they lose the tight grip. I had blue ones now they put yellow in. I would like to know what the different collors mean in reference to thier gripping power.

Would you please let me know how many colors & what gripping power each has. I have straight posts implants.
Thanking you in advance, Angelo

Denture Implants - Cost and Availability

by Keir H.
(Lancaster)

Denture Implants - Cost and Availability:

I have worn dentures for over 15 years now and suffered with various problems - sore gums, ill fitting dentures etc.

Denture implants seem to be the way forward but I'm unsure as to the cost and the procedures inloved. Can anyone give me any information on denture implants? Is it painful? How long will it take for them to be fitted?

I'm based in the North West of England but can travel anywhere in the UK.

Thanks,

Keir

Mini-implants placed for an upper fixed denture.

by Patient

I have six mini-implants placed for an upper fixed denture. My old denture was retrofitted temporarily. The implants protrude from holes drilled in the plate portion of the old denture. They won't be directly under the teeth of the permanent denture.

Can an upper modified or hybrid fixed eight tooth upper denture be sustained by six Intra-lock minis placed so lingually? Because of bone loss, the four middle teeth will have no implants near. When the dentist talks about how heroic it is to be restoring my teeth, I lose confidence. It feels as if he expects them to fail.
I appreciate your help.
