Mini Dental Implants in Mooresville
Secure Your Denture For A Firm, Lifelike Fit
The longer you wear a traditional denture, the more likely it is that your jawbone structure will begin to deteriorate. Because the mouth’s soft tissue has direct contact with the prosthetic, this will recede as well, leaving patients struggling with discomfort, constant adjustments, and difficulty performing simple functions like chewing food and speaking clearly. At New Smile Carolina, Dr. Keadle can solve these problems and give you back the stable smile you deserve with the help of mini dental implants. To schedule a consultation, give our Mooresville, NC location a call!
The Mini Dental Implant Procedure
Your new mini implants will be composed of titanium, and they’ll function just like the natural root of the tooth. The head of the implant has a ball-like shape to it; it pairs with a retaining fixture that is attached to the base of a denture and contains a rubber O-ring. When connected, the O-ring will snap over the “ball” and hold the denture to the gums in a gentle, but reliable fashion.
Once your new mini implants are securely in place, Dr. Keadle can adjust your existing denture so that it can attach over them. We strongly recommend that implant-supported dentures with mini implants should be the first choice for patients who’ve experienced significant tooth loss – you can prevent bone loss and smile with more confidence!
