What Can Mini Implants Do For You?

There are several ways to deal with missing teeth and it’s fair to say that some methods are more effective than others. If you’ve decided to undergo a dental implant in Richmond for example the chances are that you’ll have made your decision based on their long-term solution to missing teeth. However even though dental implants are considered a permanent solution to teeth replacement it may not be possible to fit implants to everyone.

Dental Implants Richmond

For those people with insufficient or poor quality bone mass, those where dental spacing is tight, or for those with difficult-to-access areas such as spaces at the back of the jaw, then there may well be another option…mini implants.

As the name suggests mini implants are smaller than traditional or standard dental implants and this enables them to be fitted into areas (such as those mentioned above) that a standard dental implant could not be fitted. They are also placed using minimally invasive techniques and most importantly, without the need for surgery. As placement doesn’t require any cutting open of the gums, then recovery time is minimal. In addition to this it’s also a cost-effective alternative.

So what are they mainly used for?

When it comes to dental implants in Richmond, here at Sheen Dental we often use mini implants for denture stabilisation. Loose dentures are a common problem and can rub on the gum line over time causing the area to become inflamed and sore. In addition to this loose dentures can also cause embarrassing issues whilst speaking. They can also affect eating and chewing. All in all, it’s problems such as these that many denture wearers face. Mini implants can help by negating the need for fixatives and glues which would normally keep the dentures in place. Instead they’re used as a means by which to anchor the removable dentures to, thus creating a stable denture that won’t move when the wearer speaks, or eats.

There’s no denying that dental implants are becoming more and more popular and as such so too are variations such as mini implants. They offer the freedom and longevity that standard dental implants give but at a fraction of the cost and without the surgical procedure. It’s no wonder then that they appeal to many people.
