At Progressive Dental Care in South East (SE) Calgary, we help patients with mini-implants and denture issues. If you require any implants, we'll be there to assist you.
Mini-Implants is a solution for securing dentures with ultra-small diameter titanium alloy implant screws.
Mini-Implants come in six different lengths; 6, 8, 10, 13, 15 and 18 millimeters.
Mini-implants are narrow is normally inserted directly through the overlying gum tissue and into the bone underneath.
After, a small receptacle is inserted into your denture.
Once that is completed, the implant will hold your dentures in together without slipping and without messy glues, tapes or pastes.
Many upper denture patients have enjoyed the absence of the plate covering the top of their mouth by having mini-implants installed. The implants secure the upper denture in place eliminating the need for the portion of the upper plate covering the roof of the mouth.
Mini-implants require care during insertion. To relieve the pain on the bony structures and nerves, mini-implants offers a comfortable margin of safety.
