Are you interested in implant dentistry but a traditional implant is not feasible?
For most people suffering with the inconvenience of removable dentures or the embarrassment of missing teeth, traditional dental implant surgery is a viable option with high success rates. However, there are some cases where mini dental implants are a better choice for both economic and health purposes.
Mini Implants are very similar to the full sized dental implants but are often recommended in cases such as securing a denture in the bottom jaw or insufficient bone density in the jaw. Plus they are also an option for people who only require a single dental implant (with a single restoration).
Mini implants are a good alternative to dentures and bridges and are as equally as effective as their full sized counterpart.
Mini Implants are often preferred to the full size implant which may be due to reasons of cost. The mini implant is cheaper than a full size implant.
HOW ARE MINI IMPLANTS FITTED?
This is a minimally invasive procedure which is carried out under a local anaesthetic. It tends to be quicker than the procedure for the full size implant .If they are used to secure a denture in the lower jaw then the process involves the insertion of a series of mini implants into this jaw at regular spaces. Your denture is placed back into your mouth and adjusted so that it sits on top of these implants and fits securely in place.
