Properly maintained implants, which are anchored by sufficient bone, can last for many years.
The other advantages of dental implants include:
Prevention of bone loss
- Prevention of gum recession
- Improved appearance
- Improved function (chewing and speech)
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are used to secure dentures.
Their most common application in our practice is to stabilise and secure a lower full denture but can be also used to make a “palateless” full upper denture allowing the patient to taste their food properly. This literally does change a patient’s life enabling them to eat a wider variety of foods with confidence that the denture will stay in position.
The procedure is less costly relative to traditional implant placement because it is less invasive with a shorter time span to completion. Of all the treatments we provide this one routinely generates the comment ” I wish I had done this years earlier!”
