What are Mini Implants?
Mini implants are small screws measuring 1.8 to 3mm that can be placed in one day for patients. They also act as a tooth root and can retain crowns and bridges. Placing a mini implant is a minimally invasive procedure. The patient’s existing denture is placed on the implants or a new denture is fabricated. Mini implants do not need as much bone structure as regular implants. Mini implants are also cheaper than regular implants.
How is the Mini Implant procedure performed?
The dentist drills a hole in the bone of the patient's jaw. The mini implant is screwed into the bone. The denture is then fitted with metal fasteners that fasten the denture to the ball shape of the head of the mini implant. Mini implants are placed using local anaesthesia or intra-venous sedation. Patients should not feel any pain during the procedure.
Can I travel by air after the placement of Mini Implants?
Patients can travel by air one day after mini implants are placed. They should ask the advice of their dentist before embarking on their journey.
What is the recovery time after the placement of Mini Implants?
Patients recover from a mini implant procedure within a day.
What care is required after the placement of Mini Implants?
Patients should use a soft brush and rinse their mouths gently after mini implants are inserted. They should not smoke or drink alcohol. They should take all prescribed medications correctly. Patients can apply ice packs to the swollen area to bring down the swelling. They should eat soft food or follow a liquid diet for at least a week. They should avoid eating hard food products. They should sleep with their head elevated until the swelling reduces.
