Mini Dental Implants and Your Dentures

Full mouth cosmetic reconstruction with dental implants can transform your smile. Dental implants can replace missing or severely damaged teeth. Dr. Ajmo can put together a personalized treatment plan that will provide a beautiful aesthetic enhancement to your smile.

If you are missing most or all of your teeth, then we know that you understand the hassles of removable dentures: ill-fitting appliances, messy adhesives, and painful pinches. PGA Dentistry can make your life easier and your smile more vibrant with full-arch dental implants. Our Palm Beach Gardens office is dedicated to providing exceptional results for our patients who need permanent tooth replacement. With high quality dental materials, leading-edge techniques, and the most advanced technology, Dr. Jay Ajmo can provide you with a mouthful of natural-looking teeth.

By attaching your denture or bridge to your jawbone with dental implants, you can eliminate the inconvenience of removable teeth. There is no more efficient or effective way to rebuild your incomplete smile. To learn more or to schedule a consultation, contact our office today.

What Are Mini Dental Implants?

Although they’re both made from a biocompatible titanium alloy, traditional dental implants have an average diameter of 4-5mm, while mini dental implants have a diameter of 3mm or less. Mini implants are often longer than traditional implants and may be placed at different angles and depths to optimize stability. Dr. Ajmo generally recommends mini implants for patients who have worn full dentures for several years, but want a more reliable alternative to removable dentures, which tend to slip out of place.

Mini implants are an excellent solution for anchoring a full lower denture, although they can also anchor an upper denture. The PGA Dentistry partners with a trusted dental lab that can, in some cases, retrofit a patient’s existing dentures to connect to mini implants.

Benefits of Mini Implants

If used to secure an upper denture, mini implants can negate the need for a palate plate, meaning that thousands of taste receptors that were previously covered up are now exposed. This results in a heightened sense of taste and improved enjoyment of flavorful foods. In many cases, mini implants can help people whose age or health status disqualifies them from undergoing traditional implant surgery.

If you and the doctor determine that mini dental implants are right for you, you can walk into your appointment with problematic removable dentures and walk out with a secure, functional set of mini implant-secured dentures.​

After the mini implants are secured, Dr. Ajmo will attach your dentures and check the fit. Your dentures will still be removable, but much more secure.

For some patients, mini implants offer a number of benefits, including:

  • No downtime
  • No need for denture adhesive
  • No more dentures that slip, slide, or shift while eating and speaking
