A More Convenient Tooth Replacement Option
Do you have a tooth or teeth that need to be replaced and are struggling to choose a replacement method that feels like a good fit? Perhaps you love the idea of implants but aren’t too happy about the cost or recovery time. You may also be considering dentures but are looking for something a little more permanent. If this sounds like you, we may have the solution you have been looking for. Read on to learn about a tooth replacement option you may not have heard of yet.
What are Mini Implants?
If you love the idea of dental implants, but are holding off on this option because of the overall cost and treatment time, you may be interested in learning about mini implants. Similar to traditional dental implants, mini implants are just as their name implies, a smaller dental implant. Mini implants are implanted into the jawbone without the invasive surgical procedure required with traditional implants. They also fit into smaller spaces and are a great option for replacing incisors or premolars.
Benefits of Mini Implants
One of the biggest benefits of dental implants is the treatment and recovery time. Traditional dental implants require numerous, invasive procedures as well as months of recovery time. Patients can see quite a few months pass from the start of treatment until completion. With mini implants, the treatment can be completed same day or in very few appointments, and the healing time is only a few days instead of a few months. Other benefits of mini implants include:
- More affordable compared to traditional dental implants
- Entire treatment can be completed in our office
- No bone grafts or flap surgery required
- Comfortable in the mouth
- Look and feel like natural teeth
