Mini Dental Implants for Loose Dentures

Loose dentures and partials are something many people just accept as an unfortunate part of their lives. This was a reality over the past few decades as there were few options to help many of these people. The development of minimally invasive mini dental implants has been a revolutionary change.

In many cases, a patient recieves placement of the implants, attachment of a denture to the newly placed implants, and leaves that day in full function. Many of our patients have been able to revisit the foods they have been dreaming of eating without discomfort! The procedure takes 1-2 hours and requires no stitches.

Please call us if you or a loved one has been struggling with a loose denture or partial or has had nutritional issues due to the limited types of food their denture will allow them to enjoy. Dr. Brajcich is a certified provider and is trained to place 3M ESPE mini dental implants.

The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons website provides information about how implants work, when implants should be used, and who is a candidate for implants.
