Everything You Need To Know
Mini Dental Implant Solutions
The newest breed in implant dentistry.
Replacing a single tooth with a single tooth implant does not endanger the health of the neighboring teeth. Because a dental implant will replace your tooth root, the bone is better preserved. Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact.
Several missing teeth can also be replaced with individual implants. With this method, a dental implant will be placed at the site of each missing tooth, providing ideal replicas of your lost teeth. Multiple teeth may also be restored with an implant bridge, which is a prosthetic comprised of three or more crown units, depending upon the number of missing teeth.
One of the most rewarding and exciting new procedures in dentistry today is the system for making loose dentures tight and comfortable. Mini dental implants provide denture patients with the ability to eat, smile and speak with confidence. In as little as 1 hour, 4-6 dental implants can be placed and your dentures can be fitted over the implants. The patient leaves the office with stable dentures that can be used IMMEDIATELY.
In addition, placement of these implants results in little to no post operative discomfort. Many patients who were not candidates for conventional implants because they didn’t have enough bone or because of finances are now mini dental implant candidates.
Made of Hybrid Resin or Zirconia, the removable bridge involves placement of between 6-10 implants, determined by bone volume and bone quality. This is a fixed hybrid bridge that can be detached by the dentist as needed at recall cleaning visits.
The Fixed Roundhouse Zirconia Bridge involves placement of between 10-12 implants, determined by the bone volume and bone quality. The final bridge is tried in for patient comfort and aesthetic approval and then cemented in place. You no longer need to worry about your teeth moving or falling out because this is a cemented zirconia bridge.
The Mini Implant Advantage
Half The Size
Mini dental implants are about half the size of traditional implants, and therefore don’t require extensive, painful surgery.
Without the lengthy healing time of traditional implants, mini dental implants allow you to get your new teeth same-day.
No More Decay
Mini dental implants are made out of titanium and they are not subject to decay and periodontal disease.
Quicker Healing Time
A less invasive procedure that results in faster healing time, virtually no discomfort, and way less visits to the dental office.
Half The Cost
In most cases, the mini dental implant procedure is less than half the cost of a traditional implant case.
Preserves Bone Structure
If you have missing teeth you may have lost a large portion of the bone in your jaw. Mini dental implants will halt bone loss.
