What You Should Know about Mini Implants
Dental implants can be an effective means of replacing one or more missing teeth. With this type of dental appliance, a false tooth root is implanted into the jawbone of the patient. After a recovery period, a false tooth is affixed to the root. In many ways, getting a dental implant is just like getting a brand new tooth.
Mini implants are an excellent alternative to regular-sized dental implants. Typically, mini implants are used with full upper or lower dentures. In these circumstances, a row of mini implants (usually 4 to 6) are placed along the gum line to serve as a base for the denture. This helps hold the dentures in place securely. Mini implants are also suitable for a narrow space in a patient’s mouth, where a normal size implant may not fit.
The Procedure Involved with Mini Implants
Although mini implants to have some similarities with regular-sized dental implants, the procedure involved in fitting a patient with mini implants is quite different. Because these dental appliances are so small, they can usually be inserted right through a patient’s gum and into the bone, with no incision necessary. This eliminates the need for a recovery period, which can be quite lengthy with regular implants. Without a long recovery period, the restoration can typically be placed right away or shortly thereafter.
Another advantage of mini implants is that they are less expensive than their regular-sized counterparts. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Robertson today to find out if mini implants are a good choice to resolve your dental issues.
