If you or someone you love has lost their natural teeth, it can be devastating and embarrassing. Losing your teeth can take a toll on your self-confidence, self-esteem, nutrition and overall quality of life. For many, the traditional options for replacing a full set of teeth have been dentures or implants. Both options come with advantages and disadvantages, but a new technique, mini dental implants, combines the benefits of both and offers a great alternative to teeth replacement, often referred to as snap-in dentures. Snap-In Dentures provides the best of both worlds and allows you the stability of dental implants with the ease of dentures that fit perfectly and comfortably stay in place while eating, talking, and going about your normal daily activities.
Dentures without implants can fit poorly or loosely. Improperly fitted dentures can cause many problems such as speech impediments, mouth sores, and inflamed gums. In serious cases, loose dentures can even lead to gum infections. Anchoring dentures with mini dental implants provides teeth that are secure.
The surgery needed for mini dental implants is far less invasive than the surgery for conventional dental implants. This difference is due in part to the size of the implant, which results in a larger incision and a larger drilled hole. The difference in invasiveness is also due to the greater number of visits required for conventional dental implants. In many cases, we can perform your snap-in dentures procedure in a single day and have you walk out of our office with new teeth later that day.
Mini dental implants are usually less expensive than conventional implants because they require less time, fewer visits and are easier to implant. Moreover, mini implants do not require bone grafts, which contributes to the higher cost of conventional dental implants. Generally speaking, mini implants may cost around half as much as conventional implants, although every case will vary based on the amount of work needed. Since mini dental implants are the foundation of our snap-in dentures, we are able to pass those savings onto you, the patient.
