Denture is supported by the gums and bone Implants provide retention typically by silicone rubber or attachments like a snap.
The Mini Implants help prevent further atrophy of the ridge bone sine the implant acts similar to a tooth root
Mini Implants are great when teeth are not available, are in poor condition, or are poorly spaced for proper balance and stability.
Mini Implants are usually one piece - that is implant and abutment all in one
Mini Implants are indicated in the lower front area due to their size and the type of bone density found in this area - which is typically the densest bone in the mouth
In some cases the denture can be fit to be retained by the implants in the same appointment due to the dense bone allowing for immediate stability
