A titanium mini implant is a small but powerful replacement for the root of your tooth. It has a retaining fixture that snaps onto your denture’s corresponding fixture. This results in a stable and comfortable denture allowing you to live without worrying about your teeth.
How are mini implants different from ordinary sized implants?
Dental implants are an excellent solution for those with missing teeth or looking for a more permanent alternative to dentures. However, traditional dental implants require a certain amount of bone structure to be successful.
That’s where mini implants come in – they can be placed in areas with less bone and require less space than full-sized implants. Not only are they easier and quicker to place, but they can also support dentures immediately without needing months of healing.
Mini implants can be an excellent option for those who want to improve their smile but don’t have the bone structure required for traditional implants. Talk to your dentist today to see if mini implants suit you.
Placing mini implants is generally an easy and painless procedure, and the recovery time is typically only one to two days. Additionally, any necessary adjustments to the denture are made on the same day as the implant placement, allowing you to start wearing it with your new implants immediately.
