Dental implants are in a word – miracles. No longer do patients have to suffer with missing teeth or a lower denture that moves (they all do, no matter how well-made) or gagging issues with an upper denture. Patients with sufficient bone can often have dental implants placed to replace one or more missing teeth or to secure a full or partial denture. Mini-implants are very affordable and most patients with limited bone prefer this option to secure their dentures. Regular size implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth or to secure full or partial dentures. The procedure is virtually pain-free, healing is very comfortable and, in most cases, the dentures can be secured to the implants on the day they are placed.
