Senior dentistry – Mini dental implants
Mini implant ( Narrow implant )
Smaller teeth and incisors are good candidates for mini dental implants as are devices that require stabilization such as lower jaw dentures.
Like traditional dental implants, mini dental implants are used to replace missing teeth with the purpose to maintain good oral health.
When are Mini Dental Implants Used?
Mini dental implants are used to restore lost teeth in the following areas:
- Small teeth
- Front teeth
- Teeth located in a narrow area
They are also used to firmly secure and hold dentures into place, providing a more trustworthy and efficient way to secure them over adhesives that can slip out of place.
