Dental implants are widely used around the world, but some people who have inquired about having them will have been disappointed to learn they are not suitable candidates for treatment. This is quite often the case if the natural teeth were extracted quite some time ago. If this has happened to you in the past then you may want to visit Parrock Dental and Implant Centre, as it offers mini and midi sized implants. These are much smaller and thinner than conventional implants

Mini Implants can be great for Stabilising Dentures

One of the uses for mini dental implants is to stabilise dentures, and they are ideal for anyone who may previously have been told they lacked sufficient bone for conventional implants.  They can also be a good choice in situations where space is tight. If you currently struggle to wear a loose lower denture, and are looking for an affordable way to stabilise it then why not visit Parrock Dental and Implant Centre to find out if mini implants are a viable option?

The attachments for mini dental implants used to stabilise dentures are quite different from those used to hold crowns and bridges in place. These denture attachments use a type of ball and socket arrangement. The implant still consists of a post that is attached to an abutment, which in turn protrudes above the gum line, but this abutment looks like a small ball, and is designed to snap into a socket in the denture that is fitted with a rubber O-ring to ensure it is held securely in place. This will allow you to eat and chew more comfortably, and there won’t be any of the issues associated with traditional dentures that can move about, causing embarrassment and discomfort.

The procedure for placing mini implants is more straightforward and is much quicker than for ordinary sized implants. There is no need to make an incision in the gum tissue as the implant is placed directly into the gum and jawbone. This is far more comfortable, and means healing times are much quicker.

These types of implants are not right for everyone, but the only way to find out if mini dental implant in Kent might be a viable option for you is to ask an expert.
