If you are looking for a stable, lasting solution for multiple missing teeth, our dentist may recommend mini denture implants, also known as implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures are very similar in form to traditional dentures; however, they are stabilized by mini dental implants. Very often, denture wearers complain that dentures become loose and “float” around the mouth, limiting their ability to eat and speak comfortably. Implant dentures are a cost-effective solution, and in many cases, we can even retrofit an existing denture with implants.
The first step in anchoring your denture with dental implants is the placement of the implants. Our dentist uses mini implants because they produce similar results as regular implants but are not as invasive to place. Additionally, by using mini implants we can also provide your implant-supported dentures the same day if needed, greatly reducing your overall treatment time. This allows you to leave our office with a restored smile. Your mini denture implants are removable, but when fixed in your mouth will be highly stable. In fact, many patients report that their implant-retained dentures feel and function like their natural teeth.
