Why Mini Implants?
The mini dental implant procedure is a much less involved process than the placement of conventional dental implants. For this reason, the procedure can usually be completed in one simple dental appointment.
In addition to saving time in the dental office, you will have far less discomfort following this procedure due to the minimally involved dental procedure usually requiring no surgical flaps or sutures.
Because the mini dental implants are so time efficient, Dr Wahlstrom is able to perform these procedures at a lower cost as opposed to the larger conventional dental implants.
Benefits of Mini Implants:
- Simple, gentle, non-surgical procedure
- Immediate results
- Restored confidence with speaking and eating
- Improved attractiveness of your smile
- Cost effective
- Anchoring for dentures or cemented crowns & bridges
- Preserve bone and facial structure
Replace your missing teeth instantly!
Mini dental implants have been used for many years to hold dentures in position, providing the patient with the ability to eat, smile, and speak with confidence and comfort.
Today, use of this non-surgical mini dental implant technology has been expanded for anything from replacing a single tooth to a full arch of teeth. Thousands of implants have been placed with over a 95% success rate .
The entire process consists of a consultation visit to Dr. Wahlstrom with x-rays and impressions being taken. Then at one treatment visit, Dr. Wahlstrom will place the mini implant(s). In about 45 minutes, a single tooth can be replaced without the long healing times and high costs associated with conventional implants. This same procedure can be used to replace multiple missing teeth usually in approximately an hour.

Denture Retentive System
Your denture can be fabricated as a normal denture and then later on be fitted with mini implants for better retention. Four or more implants are placed in one visit. The procedure requires a minimal amount of local anesthesia. Each implant is placed quickly and easily. Your denture is then retro-fitted to snap on the mini implant retention heads. The mini implant system requires no extensive surgery, and usually the mini implants are ready for immediate use. Then you will be able to laugh, smile and speak with confidence and comfort.
