Mini-implants are used to help assist a removable prosthesis like dentures. These are similar to root form implants that are used to replace individual teeth, only they are smaller in diameter.
When a patient has been missing teeth for a while the bone where the teeth used to be will shrink and thin out. Eventually this limited bone may be too thin for some implants. These smaller, mini-implants can be used in these spaces to provide for an attachment to the denture. These are quite affordable and beneficial to help gain confidence in using dentures.
