What are Mini Dental Implants?
Mini Dental Implants have become one of the most significant advancements in dentistry. The Mini Implant System allows us to replace lost teeth and stabilize dentures. The Mini Dental Implant system for denture stabilization consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture. The head of the mini implant is shaped like a ball, and the retaining fixture acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture at a predetermined level of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue. The mini implant fixtures allow for micro-mobility while withstanding natural lifting forces.
