Mini Implants

Mini Dental Implants make your dentures feel like natural teeth, so you can be confident in any social situation – eating, talking or laughing.
 
Mini Dental Implants are an affordable solution for permanent denture stability – they typically taken only two hours to complete!
 
Immediately after treatment you will feel a new stability in your denture, secure that they have the staying power you need without having to use messy denture adhesives or creams.
 
Mini Dental Implants and your dentures
 
In most cases the treatment is compatible with your existing denture(s). If your denture(s) is very old and worn, you may need to purchase a new one which will be customised to fit your mini dental implants. In your free consultation we can advise you whether this is required.
 
About Mini Dental Implant treatment
 
Typically for a lower denture the procedure takes around an hour. An upper denture requires two separate appointments, lasting around an hour each, carried out two to three months apart. During this period your upper denture will be held in place by a temporary relining material.
 
The dentist will administer a local anaesthetic prior to starting the procedure which will ensure pain free treatment. If you are a nervous or anxious patient sedation is available to put you at ease. This will be discussed at your free consultation.
 
How do Mini Dental Implants work?
 
Mini Dental Implant
 
The 3M™ Mini Dental Implant (MDI) Denture Stabilization System consists of:
 
A metal housing that is incorporated into the base of your denture.
 
A rubber O-ring, housed in the metal housings, to provide the seal that locks the pieces into place.
 
Mini titanium alloy dental implants, rooted into the jawbone, that act as an anchor to stabilize a lower denture.
After the Mini Dental Implants procedure is complete
 
Whilst every patient is different, you may experience some kind of mild discomfort and soreness for a few days after the procedure. Often the soreness is caused by your denture now fitting properly which your gums are not used to but we can adjust your denture to overcome this.
