Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants securely hold dentures in place and are significantly less expensive than traditional dental implants. They can also be used for single tooth replacement in lieu of crowns. Small titanium posts (1.8 to 2 mm in diameter) act as the roots of your teeth and fit perfectly into the retaining fixtures that are inserted into your denture or crown. The retaining fixture placed in your denture or crown provides a firm hold, ensuring you can laugh, talk, and eat without worry.
The process begins with a 3D scan of your jaw to ensure proper placement of the small titanium posts that will be inserted to secure your denture. The next step of the procedure is minimally invasive and is performed in our office under local anesthetic. Due to its simplicity, there is almost no bleeding, swelling, or inflammation immediately following this procedure.
Mini dental implants are FDA approved and have been used by periodontists for decades.
