Are you tired of missing teeth or your prosthese that don’t stay in place? Mini dental implants can be the solution for you!
What is a dental Mini-Implant
The dental mini implant is a smaller version of the standard dental implant. Made from titanium, it’s easier to install on a resorbed bone arch, and this without a bone graft.
Mini dental implants are a good alternative to standard dental implants. They are more effective when used for stabilizing removable full and partial prostheses.
Combined with special fasteners, they form what our dentists call a “SNAP” for anchoring the prosthesis in place. The benefit of these mini dental implants is that they can be placed within a single appointment with your dentist. In some cases, the patient may even eat immediately afterwards.
Moreover, this treatment is very affordable.
Mini dental implants are small, made of biocompatible titanium alloy, and are screwed into the bone without the need for an invasive surgical procedure. The immediate loading of implants is often possible in the mandible. The implant head is round and the attachment device contains an O-ring that acts as a connection. The O-ring is placed on the head of the implant when the prosthesis is placed, and maintains the prosthesis at a predetermined level of force. If the prosthesis is in place, it gently rests on the gum tissue. Retaining facilities provide vertical flexibility and withstand extreme chewing forces.
Mini dental Implants: An affordable alternative to all budgets!
Your prosthesis is unstable? You fear the costs associated with this type of dental implant? You shouldn’t! There exists today a solution to accommodate a larger number of patients, who want a more affordable solution. It’s a dental implant of small diameter, in other words, a mini dental implant.
What are mini dental implants?
Like the standard dental implants, mini dental implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth to stabilize your dentures with a minor and rapid procedure. Specifically, our dentists insert a small titanium rod in the alveolar bone, which will hold the denture. Given the small size of these type of dental implants, they are particularly recommended to patients with a narrower alveolar bone. Generally, your dentist uses it to stabilize full dentures to the lower jaw, as bone resorption is very severe. The instability of prostheses create such discomfort that some people even avoid social events. Mini dental implants are therefore an affordable solution for you!
