Dentures, even well-fitted ones, may feel loose and slide in your mouth. This can impede you ability to chew and speak with efficiency and confidence. If you want to stabilize your dentures, then visit our dentist for mini dental implants.
Mini dental implants are similar to traditional implants in that they are titanium posts placed in the jaw bone which can be topped with dental restorations like crowns or dentures. Though, mini dental implants can only be placed in the lower jaw bone, they are durable and can withstand chewing forces.
There are several advantages mini dental implants have over traditional implants. For one, they are 60-70% less expensive than traditional implants. The procedure to place mini dental implants is quicker and less invasive than traditional implants, and they can be used immediately. The small size of mini dental implants gives them a high success rate and allows them to be placed in jaw bones with a lower density.
Mini dental implants consist of a post which has a top shaped like a ball. An O-ring is placed over the ball and attaches to dental restorations. You will care for your mini dental implants like you care for natural teeth: brushing them twice a day, flossing once a day, and visiting our dentist every six months. Call our office if you have any questions about mini dental implants.
