If your dentures or partials are making you unhappy—or if you’re about to receive an oral prosthetic for the first time—then consider mini implants. With these miniature titanium implants, Drs. Gochman and Bharati can secure your dentures, so you don’t have to worry about slipping, clicking or oozing adhesives.
As with standard dental implants, Queens dentists Dr. Gochman and Bharati surgically positions mini implants in your jawbone. We use the IMTEC MDI System, which provides a secure foundation for patients who may not have sufficient bone volume to support full-sized dental implants or whose denture must fit in a small space. But it’s not only size that distinguishes mini implants from regular dental implants. Receiving mini implants usually can be completed in just one appointment. Traditional implants, on the other hand, may require several appointments over the course of several months before the process is complete and your smile is whole.
The Mini Implant Procedure
In addition, placing mini implants is also quite different. Usually, mini implants can be surgically placed in just one appointment. For your lower jaw, three to four mini implants are needed to secure a full denture. The doctors at nysmilecreators mark the proper location for your mini implants and then uses a pilot drill to create holes in your gum tissue. The implant posts are inserted into the holes and tightened into the bone with special dental instruments.
With these mini implants in place, the base of your existing dentures or your new ones are outfitted with a retaining fixture that simply snaps onto the head of the implants, much like a ball and socket connection. Thus, in just one appointment, your dentures can be given a solid foundation that will keep them in place when you eat, speak, smile and laugh.
