Can patients in Kansas use Mini Dental Implants for Dentures?

Patients in Kansas who have full cosmetic dentures may be unhappy with the way they fit and function. Common complaints with traditional dentures include the inability to eat their favorite foods due to lack of stability, and the fear of dentures falling out at inopportune and embarrassing social moments. Even the best fitted dentures may require continued adjustments to ensure proper fit, but patients who are seeking better strength and durability out of their dentures are encouraged to speak to the team of East Wichita Dentist to learn more about mini dental implants for dentures.

Mini dental implants are a smaller, less invasive alternative to traditional dental implants which are larger in diameter and longer in length. Mini dental implants do not require as much bone structure to place and have a faster healing time in comparison. They are typically placed for patients who are looking to stabilize their dentures and enjoy better confidence and strength with their new smile. Patients who are considering replacing a single missing tooth and have sufficient bone of the jaw may be better candidates for full dental implants, but this can be discussed during the initial appointment with the dentist at East Wichita Dentist.

Mini dental implants are placed during oral surgery and are then made to fit with dentures. They snap into place so they can still be removed for thorough cleaning but are stronger than ever before. Mini dental implants are a wonderful alternative to dental adhesives and natural suction which is typically used to hold dentures in place. These restorations are made of titanium metal, a material that is biocompatible, strong, and effective in repairing the smile. In fact, titanium metal is used in many different kinds of restorations throughout the body as it is one of the strongest materials available fro repairing the body.

If you live in Kansas and are interested in speaking with a dental professional about mini dental implants and other restorative solutions, contact East Wichita Dentist today to book an appointment. Our dentist will perform a thorough evaluation of the smile with x-rays and a physical examination to find out if patients are proper candidates for this procedure.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
