To Stabilize and Anchor loose or ill-fitting Dentures!
Mini Implants are simple to place and act as small anchors that will stabilize and hold your loose dentures in place. They can almost elimate the need for that messy denture adhesive. With the placement and support of Mini Implants your dentures act more like your natural teeth, what a great feeling!
Mini Implants are about half the size of regular Implants and a main use for mini implants is to install a full upper or lower denture. A series of mini implants (4-6) are placed along the gum line and they serve as the base of the denture. Rather than placing a single implant for a single tooth, an entire lower or upper set of teeth are directly attached to the gum line. Your dentures will be anchored and stabilized, no more slipping around in your mouth and will make chewing much easier.
The small size of mini implants often means that no incision needs to be made to place the implant. They can usually be inserted right through the gum into the bone. This eliminates the need for a recovery period, and the restoration can usually be placed right away or only a short time after.
Mini implants are also less expensive than regular implants so if your dentures are loose or not fitting well they are a great investment. Only your dentist knows if mini implants are right for you, so call for a consultation today.
