Mini-implant dentures can replace missing teeth, a unique tooth replacement option. Mini dentures, as their name suggests, have smaller components than traditional dental dentures. Regarding appearance and function, mini dental dentures are no different from natural teeth or traditional dental dentures.
Procedure of Placing Mini Dentures
Unlike traditional dentures, mini dentures are implanted using less invasive methods. Instead of going under the gums like conventional implants, these little toothpick-sized ones are placed on top, just like a crown.
There is a shorter wait time for tiny dental implants than for standard implants because of the ease with which they can be placed. It is common for dentists to perform one-visit mini-implants using a local anesthetic. In addition, there are no stitches required.
However, conventional implants take several months and necessitate two dentist consultations. Additional visits for bone grafting may be necessary in some cases to ensure the traditional implants are correctly supported.
Taking Care of Your Mini Implants
Taking outstanding care of your mini implants is no different than caring for your natural teeth. To keep your teeth and gums healthy, brush them twice daily, floss once daily, and arrange an appointment with your dentist every six months. Your dentist may recommend fluoride in your toothpaste or a specific rinse if you have a buildup of plaque and tartar on your teeth.
Mini implants are now well-understood. Mini dental implants may be a good choice if you want to replace your missing teeth but do not have enough jawbone space or the financial means to undertake an effective treatment.
