Mini Dental Implants and Denture Stabilization
What Are Mini Dental Implants?Mini dental implants are biocompatible posts surgically inserted into the jawbone. Since they’re smaller than traditional dental implants, their placement process is less invasive than their traditional counterparts. They also require less supporting bone. Moreover, dental professionals often use mini dental implants to stabilize dentures by attaching them to the implants with a special abutment. The result is securely fitted dentures that ensure comfort while eating and speaking.
