Do you suffer because of loose, ill-fitting dentures? Do you experience a lack of confidence due to dentures dropping down or getting loose during an important conversation? Do you have to hold yourself back when laughing out of fear that your dentures will get dislodged? Don't you hate that sticky mess on your gums from all those layers of denture adhesive you have to apply to hold your denture in place?
Now there is hope, as Dr. A. F. Paghdiwala, at Mini Dental Implants Newtown places mini dental implants that provide great comfort and confidence to denture wearers. Dr. Paghdiwala has received advanced training in mini dental implants. He has been placing dental implants for over 12 years and has a Masters in Implant Dentistry from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI)..
WHAT ARE MINI DENTAL IMPLANTS?
A Mini Dental Implant (MDI) or a mini implant is a titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and has a connector that is placed into the base of your denture. The denture connector snaps onto the mini dental implant and your denture is held firmly in place. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball and the mini dental implant holds the denture tightly and securely in place. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue. The implant fixtures allow for ideal micro-mobility while withstanding natural lifting forces, thus keeping the denture in place while eating and talking. The connector acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated.
We pledge to provide the comfort, security and confidence of mini dental implants to denture wearers who cannot get standard wider implants, either because their bone condition is not adequate for the wider implants or they cannot tolerate conventional implant surgery or cannot afford the costs of standard implants and restorations.
"I had the mini implants put in by Dr. Paghdiwala about 10 years ago, they're fantastic. They haven't given me any trouble, my teeth are still in solid, they hold on and I can eat anything I want, even an apple, believe it or not"-- Veronica D.
