The Mini Dental Implants system was developed to provide greater denture stability for patients who suffer from the issues mentioned above and cannot withstand the rigors of conventional dental implant surgery or do not have enough bone to allow for full-sized implants to be placed.
The Mini Dental Implant System consists of a miniature titanium alloy implant, usually less than 3mm diameter, which acts like a tooth root retaining a fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture. This system is specially targeted to patients that cannot tolerate the rigors of conventional dental implant, were complications could arise.
The procedure to fix mini dental implants is less invasive than traditional dental implants with minimum impact on the gum tissue and the maxilla bones which greatly reduce the healing phase.
This procedure is completed in one session.
