Mini Dental Implants
Mini Dental Implants make your dentures feel like natural teeth, so you can be confident in any social situation – eating, talking or laughing.
Mini Dental Implants are an affordable solution for permanent denture stability – they typically taken only two hours to complete!
Immediately after treatment you will feel a new stability in your denture, secure that they have the staying power you need without having to use messy denture adhesives or creams.
I made the decision to get the Mini Dental Implants and since the treatment my life has completely changed, as I have more confidence and never need to worry about my teeth anymore. It was worth every penny and I’d recommend the procedure to anyone. I’m actually going back in March to get my upper implants fitted.
Mini Dental Implants and your dentures
In most cases the treatment is compatible with your existing denture(s). If your denture(s) is very old and worn, you may need to purchase a new one which will be customised to fit your mini dental implants. In your free consultation we can advise you whether this is required.
About Mini Dental Implant treatment
Typically for a lower denture the procedure takes around an hour. An upper denture requires two separate appointments, lasting around an hour each, carried out two to three months apart. During this period your upper denture will be held in place by a temporary relining material.
The dentist will administer a local anaesthetic prior to starting the procedure which will ensure pain free treatment. If you are a nervous or anxious patient sedation is available to put you at ease. This will be discussed at your free consultation.
How do Mini Dental Implants work?
The 3M™ Mini Dental Implant (MDI) Denture Stabilization System consists of:
- A metal housing that is incorporated into the base of your denture.
- A rubber O-ring, housed in the metal housings, to provide the seal that locks the pieces into place.
- Mini titanium alloy dental implants, rooted into the jawbone, that act as an anchor to stabilize a lower denture.
After the Mini Dental Implants procedure is complete
Whilst every patient is different, you may experience some kind of mild discomfort and soreness for a few days after the procedure. Often the soreness is caused by your denture now fitting properly which your gums are not used to but we can adjust your denture to overcome this.
To allow you to make an informed decision whether mini dental implants are the right choice for you, we are offering new patients a free mini dental implant consultations with a dentist.
In the consultation you will receive a bespoke treatment plan with mini dental implant options and costs. Working together, we can help you to make informed decisions about your mouth, your teeth and your smile.
