Mini dental implants

Replace a single missing tooth with mini dental implants

We offer in-office mini dental implants in our dental office in NE Calgary.

Find out more about what mini dental implants are, how they differ from regular dental implants, and the main benefits for you if you choose this dental solution for missing teeth.

What are Mini Implants?

Mini Implants are small titanium screws that are placed into your jaw directly and allow us to securely snap your denture into place.

The heads of the implants protrude from the gum tissue and provide a strong, solid foundation that allows your denture (usually lower denture) to SNAP on tightly and securely.

Getting Mini Implants at Eastport Dental Centre is done at one visit with the use of local anesthesia (or oral conscious sedation).

We ask you to come in for an initial consultation to explore treatment options for your specific condition.

An ideal candidate for Mini Implants has strong, healthy gum tissue that is free of periodontal disease.

This is especially important as the Mini Implants are intimately connected with the gum tissues and underlying bone structure in your mouth.

A major benefit of Mini Implants is that they can be used sooner than a regular implant.

Another benefit is that they cost a lot less than traditional implants.

And with over a 90% success rate, your “down time” is minimized.

Mini Implants are non-invasive and don’t require as much bone as conventional implants to attach to. They also help preserve the bone that is left.

Are Mini Implants secure?

A Mini Implant is like putting a screw into a piece of wood.

The Mini Implants are placed into the jawbone and in a few weeks attach themselves solidly to the bone, ensuring long term stability.

Periodic follow-up visits are scheduled so we can monitor your Mini Implants and ensure that you are experiencing a comfortable fit.

Mini Implants are preferably used in the lower jaw area as they solve a lot of problems associated with lower denture use.

Lower dentures are sometimes called ‘floaters’ because they literally seem to float in the mouth and this can cause such embarrassment that some people don’t even wear them.

Loose lower dentures can make it so difficult and painful to eat that some people actually become malnourished.

This is why Mini Implants are often preferable to lower dentures.
