Over 120 million Americans are missing a few teeth from their upper and lower jaws. We place dental implants by drilling into the jawbone to hold dentures in place of missing teeth to correct this condition. Mini dental implants are smaller in size than standard dentures. At our office, we perform this procedure by placing the 3mm titanium posts over the gum surface into the jaw. In turn, placing artificial teeth helps the implants function like regular teeth.
Who is Eligible for Mini Implant Dentures?
Mini implants are an excellent option for anyone who does not have enough bone structure to hold traditional implants. They do not go into the jaw bone, making them the best alternatives to oral surgery and dental bridges since they are non-invasive. At our clinic, you only need one visit to get mini implant dentures placed. If our patients want to avoid a bone grafting procedure, this is also the best treatment.
Recovery of Mini Implant Dentures
Most people prefer getting mini dental implants due to their short recovery period. In under a week, the gum tissue should start healing. Also, a month after the mini implants dentures procedure the pain and sensitivity should be over. We advise our patients to avoid solid foods for four weeks to prevent any pressure on the gums. Just like natural teeth, mini implant dentures require daily brushing and flossing. Proper oral hygiene and regular visits to our clinic ensure your mini implants will last a lifetime.
Mini implant dentures consist of a crown and post. They are strong enough to restore your natural tooth's function and aesthetic.
