Mini Dental Implants

Mini Dental Implants in Calgary

Mini dental implants are slender titanium posts measuring between 1.8 to 2 mm in diameter, designed to act as the roots of your teeth. These posts fit snugly into the retaining fixtures integrated into your denture or crown, creating a stable base that significantly enhances the fit and feel of your dental prosthetics. Unlike conventional implants, mini dental implants are often utilized for single tooth replacements or to firmly hold dentures in place, providing a reliable solution without the need for extensive surgery.

Benefits of Mini Dental Implants

The main advantage of mini dental implants is their ability to offer immediate improvement in the stability of dentures, allowing patients to enjoy a wide range of foods, laugh, talk, and live without concern for slipping dentures. Additionally, the procedure for placing mini dental implants is straightforward, requiring no incisions or stitches, which translates to minimal recovery time. Patients can often enjoy the benefits of their newly secured dentures immediately after the procedure, with minimal discomfort, swelling, or bleeding. This simplicity, combined with their affordability and the elimination of the need for messy denture adhesives, makes mini dental implants a compelling option for those seeking a temporary yet durable solution to dental prosthetic concerns.

Mini Dental Implants Procedure Explained

The journey towards stability and confidence with mini dental implants begins with a detailed 3D scan of your jaw, ensuring the precise placement of the titanium posts. This step is crucial for the success of the implant and the comfort of the denture fit. The placement procedure, performed right here at Renew Dental, is minimally invasive and typically completed under local anesthetic or light sedation within less than two hours. Depending on individual needs, four to six ball-headed posts are inserted into the jaw, and the denture’s retaining fixtures are equipped with an O-ring to lock onto these posts securely. The result is dentures that not only sit comfortably on the gums but are also firmly supported by the implants, offering an unparalleled level of security and comfort.
