AN EASY GUIDE TO UNDERSTANDING MINI DENTAL IMPLANTS
Mini Implants Warrnambool
The mini dental implant (MDI) is a non-surgical implant that is placed into the gum to provide support for dentures.
It is a quick-and-simple solution to conventional dentures, which have difficulty staying in place.
With mini dental implants, your dentures can have the stability of denture implants without having to go through the surgery or waiting time.
Reasons for Mini Dental Implants
Although full-size dental implants have their benefits, many people prefer not to go through the process of surgery and a waiting time of several months.
If the patient has suffered significant dental bone loss, they may not be able to receive full-size dental implants. In such cases, mini dental implants are usually recommended.
Aside from saving the patient a lot of time, mini implants are also a more affordable implant option.
Here are some of the advantages of mini dental implants:
- Implants without gum surgery
- No bone drilling required
- No stitching necessary
- One-day placement
What are they made of?
Mini implants are a simple 3-part structure that helps secure your dentures to your jawbone.
They are comprised of:
- A metal housing built into your dentures where the implants will attach
- A rubber O-ring seal that secures your dentures with your implants
- Titanium alloy mini implants that are fixed into your jawbone and holds your dentures in place
The Implant Procedure
Mini dental implants can be positioned and secured to your dentures in a single visit to the dentist.
Your dentist will administer local anaesthesia or a light sedative to prevent any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
The implants will be inserted into the jawbone with no surgery of the gums or drilling required.
Mini implants will prevent movement, loose-fitting, falling out, and other issues associated with traditional adhesive-based dentures.
At-home Care for Mini Implants
Mini dental implants require the same care as natural teeth. Brush at least twice a day and floss once a day and using fluoride toothpaste.
Because the gums are still sensitive after the dental implant procedure, use an extra soft-bristled toothbrush to avoid complications.
