About mini dental implants
Mini dental implants, as you can probably guess from the name, are small dental implants, which are used to anchor new teeth. Like traditional implants, mini dental implants are designed to replace the lost tooth root.
Mini implants different to traditional implants in size, but they also require a less invasive procedure and this means that treatment time is also shorter in most cases. Mini implants are commonly recommended for people who may not be the best candidates for normal implant treatment due to a lack of bone density in the jaw bone; they are easier to tolerate than larger implants and can be connected to dentures to provide optimum stability.
Mini implants and dentures
Mini implants are commonly recommended for patients who have experienced difficulties with dentures in the past and those who are looking for an effective solution to replace lost teeth. Traditionally, dentures are held in place by the suction of the gums, but with implants, they can be secured much more firmly.
With implants, the new teeth are stabilised in the same way as natural teeth; the implants act as the root and there is no risk of the denture sliding or becoming loose. The stability of the denture also increases its power, so you can enjoy a wider range of foods and gain peace of mind when you eat. Implants also create natural looking results, so you can feel confident when you smile.
