Mini Dental Implants
Full-size dental implants aren’t always the best solution. For patients with limited bone mass or those who can’t withstand implant surgery, mini dental implants can provide an excellent alternative. These toothpick-sized dental implants are placed in just one visit, and teeth (usually dentures) can be stabilized the same day.
Lower dentures typically present the greatest challenge for denture patients. Even with natural suction and adhesives, the lower denture can still slip out of place. The result is frustration, embarrassment, and difficulty chewing and speaking. Mini dental implants can secure your removable denture, so you can have a more active lifestyle.
Highlights of Mini Dental Implants:
- Procedure completed in about an hour
- Dentures stabilized the same day
- No sutures or lengthy healing times
- Improved bone retention
- Lower cost than traditional implants
If you’ve been told you can’t have traditional dental implants or you’re tired of your slipping lower denture, talk to Dr. Peiser about mini dental implants. After an assessment of your oral health, he’ll be able to determine whether this alternative is an option for your smile.
