Mini dental implants are an option for those who need dental implants but do not have enough bone to act as an anchor for traditional implants. People in Pensacola, Crestview, Santa Rosa Beach and Mary Esther, FL can turn to Comfort Dental Care and Orthodontics for mini dental implants to replace missing teeth and give them back their smile.
What Are Mini Dental Implants?
Mini dental implants are smaller dental implants that work in the same manner as traditional dental implants. Because they are smaller in diameter, it is necessary to have very precise replacement so that they function correctly.
What Should I Reasonably Expect from Mini Dental Implants?
Mini dental implants work in very much the same way as traditional dental implants. They act as an anchor on to which a replacement tooth or other dental fixture is secured. With mini dental implants, patients can feel secure in knowing that the implants fuse into the jawbone and provide strong support so that dentures, bridges, and artificial teeth do not shift or slip out of place.
Are There Advantages to Mini Dental Implants?
One of the biggest advantages of mini dental implants is that they make it possible for patients with significantly less bone structure to have dental implants and ultimately more secure replacement teeth. Other advantages include:
- May be less expensive
- Better breath
- Easier to talk with replacement teeth
- Better denture fit
- No slipping and shifting
- Faster treatment
How Do Mini Dental Implants Work?
The procedure for mini dental implants is very much like traditional dental implants except that they require more precision because of their smaller size. Dentures are modified to fit the mini dental implant and securely affixed. Mini dental implants restore full function to the teeth for people with less bone structure.
How Do I Know if Mini Dental Implants Are Right for Me?
If you were evaluated for dental implants and were told that you have inadequate bone structure for them, you may be a candidate for mini dental implants. During a consultation with one of our dental specialists, your teeth, gums, and bone structure will be evaluated to determine if mini dental implants are the best option.
