You might wonder if “mini” dental implants are a good option if you’ve lost your upper arch or both arches of your teeth.
What are Mini Dental Implants?
Mini dental implants are a type of dental implant used to support a dental prosthesis, such as a crown, bridge, or denture. Unlike traditional dental implants, mini dental implants are much smaller in size and can be placed less invasively, even in a single visit. Mini dental implants are also less expensive than conventional dental implants because they don’t require extra surgery for bone grafting or sinus lifts. As a result, mini dental implants have become a popular choice for patients seeking an alternative to traditional dental implants.
Mini dental implants are an excellent option for people who have lost one or more teeth. Mini dental implants are made of titanium and implanted into the bone. We can also use them to support a complete set of dentures.
Can Mini Dental Implants be Used to Support Upper and Lower Dentures?
The answer is yes! Mini dental implants can support upper dentures, but more importantly – and the one most people complain about – is the ability to lock a lower denture in-place. Because a lower denture is horse shoe shaped, it rarely stays in your mouth despite using tubes of denture glue. Mini dental implants can be used as anchors to lock the lower arch dentures in place. The same is true of the upper arch dentures, and it allows the doctor to remove material from the upper to help with the gagging feeling some people feel with upper dentures.
Full Mouth Mini Dental Implant Process
Uncertain about what to anticipate when receiving mini implants? After your initial consultation and treatment approval, you will visit Freedom Mini Dental Implants for your implant placement procedure.
We will clean and numb your mouth. We will use a tiny drill to make an equally tiny hole in your gum, and place each implant. You will leave with a temporary crown or your denture locked in place. The procedure is quick, with many patients in and out in around an hour.
For denture wearers, you will come back the following week for any adjustments. If we are making a crown or bridge for you, you will come back in four weeks to have it permanently fixed in place.
