Why an experienced dentist makes the crucial difference between success and failure?
Many people have problems with lower-jaw dentures. These frequently slip out causing embarrassment to patients. These people may need mini implants to fit their dentures securely. Mini implants are increasingly being used to stabilize lower jaw dentures so a dentist who wants fits patients with dentures needs to be either trained in implants or refer to implant dentist for the placement of mini implants if the need arises.
Patients might need treatment before having the dentures done; a failure to treat underlying gum abscess or root problems can spell disaster for the dental implants or dentures. Your dentist will assess you to see whether you are right candidate for receiving mini implants. Mini implants require strong jawbone to be placed securely in place. People who lack strong underlying bone can’t get implants.
Look for dentists who have a good practice with many patients who can vouch for them. Ask to speak with several patients who have had treatment from the dentist to find out about quality of treatment, after care, help with potential problems, patient interaction, help from support staff and so on.
