Mini Denture Implants Near Topeka
Today, implants have become the top choice for reconstructing one or more missing teeth, and it’s not hard to understand why. They offer patients countless valuable benefits, from revitalizing oral health to seamless aesthetic quality to exceptional durability that can last for a lifetime. Here in Silver Lake and Topeka, Dr. Michael Michel would like nothing more than to be your trusted support through this process, working closely with a specialist for the surgical procedure and then providing strong, custom-made restorations for the mini denture implants as the finishing touch. At Michel Dental, quality customer service is our top priority!
Once it’s been determined that you’re a viable candidate for mini denture implants, the first step towards regaining your beautiful, complete smile is to have the implant(s) surgically placed into the jawbone. In order to make sure the implants are accurately positioned, we’ll take digital x-rays of your mouth and jaw.
Mini Dental Implants for a Full Smile
Implants can be placed in either or both the upper and lower jaw bone tissue to firmly hold dentures in place. Dr. Michel will strategically position each implant to take full advantage of the most bone density, so you can be sure your implants will be secure.
Once Dr. Michel completes this process, a period of healing will be needed for your mouth to heal and for your new mini denture implant(s) to form a strong bond with your natural tissue. As the name implies, mini implants are somewhat smaller than traditional implants, so the healing time required is usually shorter. However, Dr. Michel will want to be certain that your implants are firmly set before placing your permanent dentures.
Mini Implants for Partial or Full Dentures
In Silver Lake, implant supported dentures can be used for a partial denture that replaces a few teeth or full dentures that replace an entire arch of teeth. In either case, you’ll no longer need to worry about your dentures slipping, clicking or even falling out, because they will be firmly attached to the implants.
Finally and once you’re healed, you’ll return to either our Topeka or Silver Lake, KS office to receive your new, custom-made denture restoration. In some cases, patients can have this restoration placed on the same day as the initial surgery!
Once your implant supported dentures are in place, you’ll care for your new teeth just as your would your natural teeth. Brush at least twice a day with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, and be sure to floss everyday, too; plaque can build up on dentures just as well as natural teeth and put you at risk for gum disease.
Choices for Restoration
Dr. Michel will restore your mini denture implants, Topeka, with a lifelike prosthetic. This prosthetic closely resembles a traditional bridge or denture, but it’s designed to attach securely to these implants, creating the sturdy and confident fit patients are sorely missing. Both fixed and removable options are available, depending on your preference. Contact Michel Dental today at either of our convenient locations to schedule an implant consultation!
