Mini Implants: The Easiest Way to Stabilize a Lower Denture

People are living longer and healthier lives and it is not uncommon for people to reach 85, 90, or even older ages.

Many however, loose their teeth over time due to decay or gum disease and end up with partial or full dentures.  The dentures become loose, gum tissue becomes sore, and eating becomes very difficult.  Seniors love to stay social, eat good, and share great times with family and friends without the embarrassment and difficulties that come with denture use.  The quality of life is especially important at this stage and we need to do everything we can to improve it.

Dental Implants dramatically improve life quality for many older individuals by letting them eat better, get better nutrition, stay more social, and lead active and vital lives.  The advantage of Mini Dental Implants is the minimally invasive, single stage placement procedure.  The insertion of the mini implants does not require the more invasive surgery involved with regular implants.  The healing time is minimal and the best part is… the denture can attach to the mini implants on the same visit!

Dental Mini Implants allow patients to eat any food they want comfortable and get the necessary nutrition.  Mini Implants effectively support the overlying dentures and help prevent movement and accidental dislodging.  Mini Dental Implants also preserve the jaw bone and loss that occurs from conventional dentures. As a bonus, Mini Dental Implants are very reasonably priced.  It’s time to start enjoying eating and conversation again!
