Information on Mini Implants

Mini implants are an excellent alternative to standard implants and traditional dentures for denture stabilization. For dentures this is because the traditional dentures constantly have to be removed which causes a loose fit. You will also have to visit your dentist regularly to get the dentures cleaned and check for proper inclination and fit. If this is not done, the gums may swell and the jaw bone can get disrupted which can cause greater problems over time.

Mini implants are essentially the traditional implants which are fixed to the jawbone and made of threaded titanium. This is done so that the implant is permanently fixed to your jaw and therefore becomes a part of your jaw bone. The implants are made of titanium which is used because the metal has been tested to be harmless to the human body and integrates with the bone quickly with minimum risk of rejection. The mini implant when fixed to the jawbone with the titanium screw acting as a rigid base for the artificial tooth or denture will act as a strong and natural element of your mouth with great longevity.
