Dental implants are permanent fixtures that are designed to look and function like your natural teeth. They contain a titanium post on the inside, which gives them strength that dentures and bridges simply cannot match. This also makes them more comfortable than removable dentures. Dental implants are easier to eat with, improve your oral health, and can even improve speech patterns by replacing damaged teeth. Dental implants
can last for a lifetime. The crowns are crafted individually for each of our patients through a series of impressions of your natural teeth.
If you are tired of your dentures rubbing on your gums, moving around, making it hard to eat what you want, embarrassed when the denture falls out, mini implants may be you solution. Mini-implants are small titanium posts used to provide a more secure fit for a denture. The miniature titanium implants act like the roots of your teeth and a retaining fixture is incorporated into the base of your denture. The head of the implant is ball-shaped, and the retaining fixture is a socket. The retaining fixture snaps over the ball when the denture is seated, securely holding the denture in place.
Mini-implants are a great option to stabilize dentures, and they can be completed in just one appointment. In about 2 hours, the implants can be placed and adapted to the denture. There is no incision, no sutures, and they are immediate. For instance, you can have the “mini-implant system” placed in less than two hours in the morning, then go out and enjoy your favorite lunch!
Mini implants are often times more affordable than other solutions.
