If you don’t want to wait months for a beautiful smile, our dentists may recommend mini dental implants to replace missing teeth.
Unlike regular dental implants, mini implants only take one appointment to place. This means that you’ll be able to use your new false teeth to eat, talk, and smile the same day. Mini dental implants are smaller in diameter compared to their full-sized counterparts.
This means that the procedure to place mini implants is significantly less invasive while requiring less recovery time. If you don’t have sufficient jawbone tissue for a full-sized implant, our dentists may recommend mini implants to restore your smile.
Benefits of Mini Dental Implants
A mini implant is comprised of a titanium rod with a ball on the end. This ball allows a tooth restoration with a rubber O-ring to snap into place. With mini implants, we are able to secure crowns, bridges, and dentures. If you have several missing teeth, you may want to consider implant supported dentures.
Take care of your mini dental implants like you would natural teeth. This means making sure to brush teeth twice a day and floss once daily. If we find a lot of plaque and tartar buildup during your next teeth cleaning, we may recommend adding a fluoride mouthwash to your daily routine.
Our dentists offer restorative dentistry options like mini dental implants to help patients smile again after tooth loss. To schedule your appointment with one of our Westland dentists, call Parkside Dental Team at (734) 261-6060.
