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 Levittown & 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 14 years, since 2004, 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 is placed in the bone and acts like the root of your tooth. The head of the mini implant is shaped like a ball. This ball-shaped head fits snugly inside a connector or housing that is placed inside your denture. The denture connector has a rubber O-ring or a gasket that snaps onto the ball-shaped head of the mini implant, holding your denture firmly and securely in place when eating and talking.
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.
