Problems with dentures start when the dental restorations start to become loose. As the dentures lose their tight fit, they start to move uncontrollably even with small mouth movements. This problem is further aggravated by the deterioration of the jawbone, resulting from the loss of the natural tooth roots that once provided the necessary stimulation to the bone.
Do you have problems with your dentures? Are you frustrated with how uncomfortable and embarrassing it is to have loose dentures? Mini dental implants at Life Dental Implants London bring you the solution you need to secure those ill-fitting dentures.
What are Mini Dental Implants?
Mini dental implants or mini implants are smaller in size compared to traditional dental implants. They are used to solve problems caused by loose dentures, by providing a secure base to which the dental restorations are connected to the jawbone.
Mini implants are placed using a less-invasive procedure, compared to the surgical procedure used to attach traditional dental implants to the jawbone. In most cases, there will be no need to cut open the gums, and stitch them closed afterwards. This translates to less pain, and a much shorter recovery period for the patient.
There is also no need for advanced procedures, such as bone grafting, when placing mini dental implants. These smaller implants are ideal for those who have jawbone deterioration. The implants can be used immediately after their placement, with no need to wait for a few months for the implants to be healed before they can be utilised.
