Mini Implants

Do you have loose dentures?

Relining the denture bases can help if there is a gap present, and the patient can tolerate the denture length to go far back in the mouth where most of the retention is attained.Many people struggle with this frustrating condition due to poor-fitting dentures, poor contour of their remaining ridges, or inadequate muscle control. Relining the denture bases can help if there is a gap present, and the patient can tolerate the denture length to go far back in the mouth where most of the retention is attained.

Normally, to have the retention you would like and to have the strength of a normal bite, dental implants are indicated to snap the denture in place securely.

Mini implants are an alternative to full-size implants. They are less costly, can be placed without surgery, and can be put into function usually the same day.

A mini implant is like a small titanium screw placed into the jawbone with a small ball sticking out of the gum. Rubber o-ring attachments are placed into the existing or new denture that fit tightly over the exposed balls.

A mini implant is like a small titanium screw placed into the jawbone with a small ball sticking out of the gum. Implants are placed in areas where there is adequate thickness of the jawbone. Normally, four or six mini implants are needed. If you need teeth removed, often it is necessary to place a bone graft into the socket to maintain the bone.

Since the denture snaps in place, the denture bases don’t have to be as large, and usually
the upper denture can be made without covering the palate. This gives the patient a much more natural feel, a huge improvement in function, and the confidence to smile freely.
