Miniature implants are also available for denture wearers. The smaller implants allow the denture to ‘snap’ into place which provides a strong bond to the gums of the denture wearer. A smaller denture can be used if mini implants are in place.
Implants can also be used to hold a bridge or partial. In the event that a patient is missing several teeth an implant or implants can be placed at either end of the row of missing teeth and can then secure a bridge or partial.
