Dental mini implants: I have had mini implants for several years now.
I noticed lately that they are not as securing as before. My denture slips in and out very easy. Is there a repair for this? ...Visitor from Las Vegas
Mini dental implants typically use an "O-ring" fastening system.
The o-rings require replacement every few years. Many dentists provide their denture patients with a kit made up of extra o-rings and a tool for replacing them.
Once the o-rings are replaced, everything should fit snugly again. Denture O-rings are manufacturer specific and can only be purchased through a dentist.
