Just completed a palateless upper denture on Mrs. D.P .this afternoon. We used 6 mini implants, and when I called her tonight to see how she was doing, she claims she did not even take any of the pain meds I gave her. She absolutely LOVES tasting her food again and she will NEVER, EVER have to use those gooey denture adhesives again. Also, she can keep her dentures in her mouth 24 hours a day. She takes them out once a day to rinse her mouth and that is it. The entire treatment took about an hour with NO discomfort whatsoever.
I sure wish more denture wearers would avail themselves to this technology. There is no pain involved, very little bone is needed, you get your teeth right away and the cost is less than one-half what conventional implants would cost. And the other great thing is we offer a FREE Mini Implant consultation including any necessary x-rays. What do you have to lose?!
