Mini dental implants are an increasingly popular alternative to invasive surgery to create an anchor in your mouth that will hold your dentures firmly in place.
The mini implant involves a tiny titanium screw that is inserted to become a fixed point that attaches to your denture to prevent it from moving around in your mouth.
These tiny implants can be made to fix your existing denture so, unless your dentures are badly worn, there is usually no requirement to have a new denture made.
The procedure involves a local anaesthetic to desensitise the area of the mouth while the screw is attached to the bone. We then give this time to bed in and make a further appointment for the work to be completed. In the meantime you can continue to wear your denture as normal.
