Mini Dental Implants
For some patients, even the best made dentures simply don’t work. These patients experience tenderness, denture slippage, gagging, poor aesthetics, frustration and an inability to chew. Universally this struggle results from either a lack of jawbone to support the denture or intolerance for the denture base, which covers the palate and surfaces of the mouth. For these people, the dentures must be anchored to the jaws to prevent denture movement. With dental implants a denture can be locked in place, allowing the plastic that covers the roof of the mouth to be removed. Visit our dental implant page.
Often the best solution to loose lower dentures is the simplest one. Mini implants provide dental anchorage at less than half the cost of conventional implants. Mini implants can be placed without bone grafts or waiting periods. With an implant stabilized denture a person can laugh, talk, eat and sing with confidence.
Small Diameter Implants
Small diameter (Mini) implants offer an economical choice for locking a denture in place. The treatment is simpler, no incisions, no stitches and no waiting periods for healing. This procedure is particularly well suited for people that have had teeth previously removed and now have little jawbone remaining. Because of simplicity this procedure is completed in one or two dental appointments.
Treatment begins with a consultation. Dr. Kotlarek will discuss cost and treatment options tailored to best meet your needs.
