Get life changing restorations
Commonly known as mini implants, or narrow platform implants is what I typically call them, they’re implants that we can utilize to help retain a denture. These are terrific options for…if there’s not adequate bone. And I would also say for our older patients. When mom is sent to the nursing home and having a hard time because of dentures or abstaining, these are the type of cases that do really well in terms of regaining some functionality so she can eat and enjoy her food. And one of my favorite cases that we had was a son had brought his dad, he knows that his dad had significant weight loss, and it was pretty much just eating gravy because he couldn’t eat anything else. And so we were able to place some of these narrow platform or mini implants in there and get his denture to attach, and he started putting on weight because he was able to eat, and he’d like to come back out to lunch with his sons. Those are the fun times to really see that quality of life improve.
