What Are Mini Dental Implants?
Posted August 29, 2017.
Mini dental implants are similar to regular dental implants, only smaller (as you may have already guessed). They have the same structure and they can support dental restorations that replace your missing teeth, like dentures, dental bridges, dental crowns, loose dentures, and even lower arch dentures. They can help you fill the gaps in your mouth and achieve the beautiful smile you desire.
These implants are beneficial when your underlying bone has been compromised by gum disease or other dental issues. For this instance, the bone can’t support a full dental implant but it should be able to support a mini dental implant. When placing the mini implants in the mouth, your dentist, Dr. Tyler Williams, can install them in one appointment at Pinecrest Dental with the use of anesthesia and sedation (if necessary) and without the use of sutures.
Once the implants are placed in the mouth, you need to care for them like you would care for your natural teeth. This means you need to brush and floss them as well as rinse your mouth regularly. In addition, it’s vital to visit our office every six months for your professional dental cleaning and exam appointments.
