Mini Implants are used for support where solid bony adaption has occurred and are a long-term supportive structure. They are effective in stabilizing the lower denture. Those who suffer from loose and ill fitting dentures can find relief in this system.
The implants are gently screwed into the front of the patient’s mandible (jaw). No special anesthesia is required other than local. The denture can then be snapped onto the implants.
Like other dental procedures implants are not infallible. Implants can be affected by natural causes including osteoporosis, poor oral hygiene and usage. Follow-up treatments are imperative in order to keep the implants functioning.
