Mini Implants in Calgary Alberta
Mini Implants – Keeping dentures in place and patients in comfort
Denture patients find it difficult to live with the artificial restoration as jaw bone starts to shrink with time. The appliances, which once form a perfect fit in the mouth of patients, can start to slip causing discomfort. Although there are adhesives to keep dentures in place, they are not very effective and are inconvenient for an application. Mini implants are small diameter screws which are designed to keep the dentures and partials in place. These small screws can eradicate the need for plates in upper dentures by holding the prosthodontic appliance in place.
How are mini implants inserted?
General dentists examine the patient to check the condition of the jaw bone. Once this is accessed, patients are informed about the treatment process and post-treatment care. The process of insertion takes place in a single appointment. Patients can continue with their regular diet on the same day after the treatment.
All dental services at our office are offered by general dentists.
