Mini Dental Implants

Visit our office in the morning, have the Imtec Sendax "Mini Implant System" placed in less than two hours, then go out and enjoy your favorite lunch, eat comfortably, have a pleasant conversation, laugh and talk with confidence. Your denture feels secure and is being held firmly in place. All dental implants are not the same. Depending on how big the implant itself is, it will be classified as either a standard dental implant or a mini dental implant, which is sometimes also called a denture implant. A mini implant is smaller and thinner than a regular dental implant. In addition, mini tooth implants are also considerably more affordable.

The mini dental implant system consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of the replacement tooth, or denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball, and the retaining fixture acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture at a predetermined level of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue.

Placement of the mini dental implants is accomplished quickly and easily in a process performed in our office. The procedure generally takes around 1 to 2 hours. Using a precise, controlled, minimally invasive surgical technique, the implants are placed into the jawbone. The heads of the implants protrude from the gum tissue, providing a strong, solid foundation for securing the dentures. It is a one-step procedure that takes less time and heals faster than standard implants.

Our staff has a vast array of experience in mini dental implants. To discuss whether you're a candidate for mini implants, or to set your appointment, call us today!
