What Are Mini Implants?
Mini implants are mainly used to stabilize your current or a new denture. Usually 4 implants are used and are placed quickly and easily using only a minimal amount of local anesthesia. Your denture is then retrofitted to snap on the mini implant retention heads. The mini implant system requires no extensive surgery and with some care are ready for immediate use.
How Are Mini Implants Placed?
Placement of the implants is accomplished quickly and easily in a process performed in our office with local anesthesia or light sedation to help make you more comfortable. Using a precise, controlled, minimally invasive surgical technique, mini implants are placed into the jawbone. The heads of the implants protrude from the gum tissue and provide a strong, solid foundation for securing your dentures. It is a one-step procedure that involves minimally invasive surgery, no sutures, and significantly reduced healing time.
What about Care and Maintenance?
You must brush and clean the ball of the implants as if they were your natural teeth. As with natural teeth, food and bacterial debris (plaque) must be removed after meals. If not removed, the plaque will cause inflammation of the gums and can be forced into the O-ring fixtures causing improper seating and loss of retention. The O-ring fixtures must also be cleaned out. A Water-Pic may be used to rinse out the denture fixtures.
