Secure Your Dentures With Swedesboro, NJ Mini Dental Implants
To get dental implants, you need a jaw strong enough to support them. This can be a problem if you have lost teeth, especially if it’s been a while. That’s because bone density diminishes when your teeth are missing. You can likely still enjoy the benefits of implants, though, with mini dental implants.Doctor Elizabeth Kilpatrick Fox on mini dental implants Read Transcript
Elizabeth: Mini implants are a great option for some patients. Specifically when they're for smaller teeth. So front teeth, upper or lower, they can be a great replacement. And the best part about mini dental implants for patients who may have dentures, if we can put a couple of those in there, it can help support and secure those lower dentures, which patients can't stand, and it really helps them eat and chew better when those dentures aren't flopping around.
So the mini dental implants are great, and we do them here at the office, and they work out fabulously. And the patients who've done them love them.
One of their most popular uses is mini dental implants for dentures. But Swedesboro, NJ dentist Dr. Elizabeth Fox may suggest them for other uses too. You can trust her recommendations, as she has been placing and restoring implants since 2000. She is a Fellow in the Misch International Implant Institute and a Diplomate in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Both honors require an advanced level of achievement.

Enjoy These Mini Dental Implants Advantages
Though they are smaller than conventional dental implants, mini implants offer many of the same advantages – as well as some of their own:
- Since they are not as large, they are quicker and easier to place.
- Recovery time with mini implants is also shorter.
- They are often more affordable than full-size implants.
- Mini implants are useful in areas where space is tight or bone isn’t strong enough for full-size implants.
- They can often be used to stabilize your existing dentures.
Stay Comfortable During Your Mini Dental Implants Procedure
Since placing mini implants is a quicker and less complex process than full-size implant placement, you will likely only require local anesthesia. But if you’re feeling anxious about the procedure, you can get a pill to calm your nerves and help you relax. You can also get comfortable with a pillow and blanket. To distract you from the sensations and sounds, you can watch TV or listen to music using headphones.
