Mini dental implants are an effective treatment option for individuals missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or they can be used to help patients keep their dentures firmly and securely in place. This allows them to feel more natural when chewing and speaking, and the procedure can be performed in one short office visit with virtually no discomfort. You will be able to go back to work and enjoy your day with a beautiful new smile!
One of the biggest benefits is that they can minimize the occurrence of bone loss and receding gums that can occur with dentures and bridgework. Additionally, unlike traditional bridgework, they don’t require the removal of a large portion of the surrounding teeth when they are put into place. They also tend to have a more natural appearance!
Mini dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or several teeth. They can also eliminate the need for temporary dentures and can be used to help provide support for dentures. It’s important to remember, however, that implants require the same oral hygiene care as regular teeth. Brushing, flossing and regular dental checkups will be necessary to ensure that your implants stay healthy. If you have a condition that would prevent this, you may not be a candidate for mini dental implants.
