Mini dental implants are a revolution in the dentistry field. They are so unique that they are even making waves outside of the dental industry. At the Franklin Square Dental Office, we have had lots of patients come in to ask all about these amazing implants
If you are wondering if they are worth getting or not, we have good news for you. If you can have mini implants safely fitted for you then yes, they will change your life.
These are implants that are fitted into your jaw in areas where you have missing teeth. The number of implants you get depends on the number of teeth you need to replace. You may end up getting as many as four miniature titanium posts implanted into your jawbone. Retaining fixtures are placed on top of the implants and serve as roots for the dentures.
Mini Dental Implant Popularity
The bulk of their popularity rests with how easy they are for denture wearers to deal with. The denture simply gets pushed onto the implant like a snap-on. There is no need to use expensive or messy adhesives. Once the dentures are put onto the implants they are really hard to distinguish from the wearer’s own teeth.
Not only are they popular they are valuable, too. The implants eventually fuse with the wearer’s bone allowing them to stabilize for the wearer’s life, and prevent additional bone loss. With traditional dentures further bone loss is usually inevitable over time.
Mini dental implants are ideal for people who are just missing a few teeth and have a solid enough jawbone for the implants to be fitted into it.
