Mini-Dental Implants

What are Mini-implants?

mini-implantMini dental implants are very strong, small, titanium screws that are approximately the size of wooden toothpicks. They can be used to anchor a bridge or denture, or for single tooth replacement.

Dr. Kopczyk, Dr. Vieth, or Dr. Majors will first do an exam or consultation to determine how many mini-implants you will need. Then under mild anesthesia the mini-implants are gently placed. If you have a denture it is then created to fit over and "snap" onto the implants, resulting in a tight fitting denture that doesn't "float" around the mouth interfering with speech and trapping food underneath.
