What are Mini Dental Implants and how will they help my denture?

The Mini Dental Implant System consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball, and the retaining fixture acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture at a predetermined level of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue. The implant fixtures allow for micro-mobility while withstanding natural lifting forces.

How can Mini Implants fix my broken or missing teeth?

When teeth are broken or missing it is ideal to restore them to their original landscape. Because the mini implants are minimally invasive implants can be placed and teeth can be restored at the same appointment. No more long healing time, or complicated surgery. Broken teeth can be removed and implants can be placed at the same appointment allowing the patient to leave with their new tooth or teeth in just one appointment.

How are Mini Dental Implants Placed?

Placement of the implants is accomplished quickly and easily in a process performed in the dentist’s office, with local anesthesia or a light sedation to help make you more comfortable. Using a precise, controlled, minimally invasive surgical technique, Mini Dental Implants are placed into the jawbone. The heads of the implants protrude from the gum tissue and provide a strong, solid foundation for securing your dentures. It is a one-step procedure that involves minimal invasive surgery, no sutures nor the typical months of healing.

How does Mini Dental Implant Technology Broaden My Options?

Dental Implant therapy has been one of the most significant advances in dentistry in the past 25 years. Tens of thousands of grateful patients bear witness to the benefits derived from the opportunity to obtain a replacement for lost teeth that restores their smiles and confidence. Several different types of implants and restorations are available. The choice depends upon the amount of bone available, the patient’s general health and restoration preference.

The computer and medical worlds are both working hard to develop smaller and smaller components. In similar fashion, a smaller version of the dental implant has been successfully utilized in selected cases. These mini dental implants enable your dentist to broaden the spectrum. The Mini Dental Implant System was developed in order to provide greater denture stability and is now used to replace individual and multiple missing teeth.
