Dentures are the most common way that people fix dental loss but they can be uncomfortable. Many will have loose fitting dentures or the dentures can simply cause pain and swelling in the gums because of the friction that is created between the gums and the denture. Because of this you may be tired of having to constantly visit your dentist to have your dentures examined and cleaned, not to mention the adjustments to correct the inclination of the dentures. The bright side is that cosmetic dentistry has come a long way and is helpful in alternatives. One of those alternatives is mini dental implants.
Mini dental implants vs dentures
Mini dental implants do not require any major surgery as in the case of bone grafting and dental implantation. They are done on your normal dentures and are a lot less cheap than dental implantation and are as effective as well. Using dental implants ensures that your dentures are fixed to your gums and do not fall off, thus giving you new confidence while talking to people or eating in public.
With mini dental implants the traditional removable dentures are replaced with permanent dentures or implants that are fixed to your jaw bone with the help of a titanium screw. This can be done in a single procedure itself and does not require any additional maintenance after that. Mini dental implants also last for many years. The healing time for mini dental implants is a lot less than the traditional implantation. After the healing period which may last a few weeks, the titanium screw bonds with the jaw bone giving you a permanent solution to your traditional denture problems.
These implants can also be used for smaller things like crown and bridge work as well. They really are a great alternative to big surgery’s and there is also the fact that they can easily be used for one missing tooth or several teeth all you have to do is consult with your dentist and find the best choice for you. The expense is less and the comfort is better a worthy choice.
