MINI DENTAL IMPLANTS
Consistent and extensive use of dentures isn’t always easy. While this simple solution may seem great at first, dentures are extremely prone to becoming loose.
This can result in unnecessarily embarrassing moments and discomfort caused by constant rubbing. With all that in mind, what’s the solution? Mini dental implants. In comparison to other types of implants, mini implants are much smaller in diameter, require a smoother treatment and can be used immediately. These mini implants act as an anchor that keep your dentures pinned into your mouth, using small ball attachments to prevent any loosening.
Mini implants are also perfect for those with thin jaw bone ridges who are unable to use traditional implants. During the procedure, bone grafting isn’t necessary. This means that your recovery time is extremely quick, alongside being able to use your implants immediately. If you’re looking for a simple surgery, immediate use and guaranteed success, mini dental implants are the way to go for your teeth.
The way we begin our mini dental implants surgery is the same way we begin any sort of treatment. To start things off, we will go into a deep analysis of your teeth and make a decision on which way to take the surgery. At this stage, we always ensure our patients are relaxed and fully understand the steps of the treatment. On the day of your surgery, we will apply local anaesthetic to your mouth to ensure the process is smooth and comfortable. The uncomplicated treatment only takes between 1-2 hours and this is because it is minimally invasive; requiring no cutting or stitching of gum.
In a simple, one step procedure, the implants are placed directly into the jawbone. The implant then protrudes from the gum, allowing us to place dentures firmly into your mouth. One of the best parts of the treatment is that it only requires one visit. Also, unlike regular implants, you’ll be able to use your dentures as soon as you walk out of our doors. After a few days of a soft diet and plenty of rest, your implants will be well on their way to a full recovery.
As you can tell, the benefits of mini dental implants are numerous. Those with smaller jawbone structure will relish the chance of a simple procedure that provides fantastic stability for dentures. If you’re still not convinced, here’s a rundown of the brilliant benefits that come with mini dental implants.
