Mini Dental Implants for Denture Stability

Complete dentures and partial dentures can restore missing teeth so that you can enjoy the foods and the self-confidence a full smile allows. But sometimes, no matter how carefully customized the dental appliance, mouths can change shape and affect the fit of your dentures, causing clicking or rubbing. Mini dental implants may improve your denture stability.

What are Mini Dental Implants?

A mini dental implant is similar to a standard dental implant—it has a surgical steel or titanium post that is implanted into your jawbone. A mini implant simply has a smaller post and may or may not have the artificial tooth (pontic) mounted on the post. The smaller size makes for a less invasive dental implantation procedure and, often, a shorter recovery period. The decreased time needed for post implantation also makes mini dental implants less expensive than standard implants.

How Do Mini Dental Implants Work?

Mini dental implants function as permanent posts in your upper or lower jaw to which your complete or partial denture may attached. Anchoring dentures to mini dental implants replaces other stabilizing methods—unsightly metal clasps on partial dentures and the adhesives for complete dentures.

Are Mini Dental Implants Right for You?

If you are a denture wearer looking for a better fit, talk to Dr. Fife about mini dental implants. Dr. Fife will examine your mouth and assess the health of your jawbone to determine if this denture-anchoring option is right for you.
