What are Mini Dental Implants?
Mini dental implants are similar to traditional implants. Dental implants have been around for years and have successfully treated many different types of oral health conditions. Both mini and traditional implants provide a base to support an artificial tooth that replaces a missing one. They tie into the jawbone through the gums, and the artificial tooth is cemented onto the implant. The result is a functional, great-looking match for your smile and natural teeth.
Like their name sounds, a mini dental implant is a smaller or “mini” version of traditional implants. The smaller size can be a determining factor in whether or not they’re suitable for you.
Mini implants are attached to the jaw bone through the gum. For those needing dentures, the denture is snapped into place onto the implants. And, for those patients needing single teeth or wanting more permanent options, the teeth are cemented in place. In any instance, a mini dental implant holds the teeth securely in place.
Chew Your Food Without Worry
If you formerly had dentures, you know they can come loose when you least expect it. Mini dental implants provide affixed dentures. They secure your new teeth, preventing them from coming loose. You’ll no longer need to worry when chewing hard and sticky substances.
How to Know if Mini Dental Implants are Right for You
Many factors may or may not make you a mini implant candidate. For example, if you need a tooth replacement in a narrow space, they can serve well. If you have lost some bone in your jaw over the years, they can be a great option where traditional implants are not. Since the mini implant procedure is fast, you can immediately gain a new smile full of beautiful white teeth.
