The miniature titanium dental implant acts like the root of your tooth and has a retaining fixture that is integrated into the base of your denture. The top of the implant is shaped like a ball, and the retaining fixture on the denture acts like a socket with an O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is placed and holds the denture in place. When seated, the denture gently sits on the gum tissue. The mini implants will allow the dentures to move as needed and will withstand natural lifting forces. Mini implants are more cost-effective than traditional dental implants.
Mini dental implant placement is a quick, one-step procedure that is minimally invasive. No sutures are required and the healing process is much shorter than with traditional implants. After administering anesthesia, Dr. Michael Shnayder will place the mini dental implants into the jawbone. The top of the implants will protrude from the gums and provide a solid foundation for your dentures. With mini dental implants, your dentures can be placed right away.
