Mini dental implants use a minimally invasive dental implant procedure that can provide the denture stability you’ve always wanted – without the costs and time associated with full-size implant treatment. Smaller than full-size implants, mini dental implants are inserted to retain and stabilize your lower or upper dentures. After the short procedure, you can resume your normal eating activities, and smile with confidence again. If your existing denture is in good condition, it may be retro-fitted to work with mini implants. This process is often covered by insurance, even though the implants themselves are not. We can help you determine your insurance coverage.
Your dentist uses a precise and controlled technique to insert the small-diameter implants (around 2 millimeters wide) into your jawbone. These implants are so small they do not require incisions in your gums.
Metal housings that carry a rubber O-ring are inserted into the bottom of your dentures. When your dentist seats the dentures on the mini dental implants, the O-rings snap over the balls like a socket, and lock the dentures firmly into place as they gently rest on the gum tissue. You can easily remove, clean and snap dentures back into place. For replacement of a single tooth, these mini-implants can hold the tooth, securely and permanently, without the need for a bridge attached to adjacent teeth.
