Dr. Roberts places mini dental implants to stabilize removable dentures. Like regular dental implants, mini implants are made of metal alloys that are well tolerated by the body. Mini dental implants cost significantly less than regular implants. Because they are smaller, they may be suitable for patients without enough bone density to support regular dental implants. Mini implants are a great way to secure your loose denture and help preserve the bone in your jaw from shrinking over time.
Unlike conventional dental implants, which often require a longer healing period and multiple visits, a mini dental implant-supported denture can be placed in one visit that usually takes about two hours. The patient leaves the dental office with a solid denture and generally can begin eating the same day.
