Mini Dental Implants
Dentures have been used for centuries to replace missing teeth, and while they can be made to look really natural, many people still feel uncomfortable with the fit and feel of their dentures. If you wear dentures, you may find that they have changed in fit over time, making them more prone toward slipping. Loose or ill-fitting dentures can cause embarrassing moments and discomfort, making it extremely difficult to eat or speak properly. With mini dental implants, we can provide you with implant-retained dentures, making your denture-wearing experience much more satisfying, functional, and comfortable.
Mini dental implants are a lot like regular dental implants – they involve a titanium screw that serves as your replacement tooth root. Then your dentures are modified to include retaining fixtures, which allow the denture to snap onto the mini dental implants. Unlike regular dental implants, mini dental implants involve only one stage and can be placed in about an hour.
Mini dental implants offer lots of benefits over traditional dentures, including:
- Greater functionality, allowing for more comfortable eating and speaking.
- Better nutrition – retained dentures allow you to eat a wider range of foods.
- No more denture adhesives, saving time and money.
- Better jaw bone health, as the dental implants help prevent bone loss.
Mini dental implants provide an affordable way to retain your dentures, offering you greater stability as well. If you would like to feel more confident while wearing dentures, mini dental implants can help.
