Most people have plenty of things to smile about in their everyday lives, however, there are some people who make sure not to at all costs. The reason can sometimes be that they are ashamed of their smile because they are missing a few teeth. Are you one of those people who covers their mouth when they laugh? Do you keep your mouth closed when someone takes a picture of you? Have you been hiding unattractive teeth for years? It’s time to take care of those dental issues with restorative dental treatments.
Today’s topic is mini dental implants, sometimes called immediate implants in Trinity. Though they are not as well known as traditional dental implants, mini implants are also being used successfully to improve smiles. Like their larger diameter counterparts, mini implants can support a restoration for one or more missing teeth or replace a bridge or fixed denture. Denture wearers benefit dramatically from these slip-free dental implants that are anchored securely in the jaw bone.
In some cases, a patient is unable to receive traditional full-size dental implants in Trinity due to insufficient bone thickness. There are also mini implant patients who are not able to undergo dental implant surgery due to health issues. These patients are often excellent candidates for the mini version.
The placement of toothpick-size mini dental implants can sometimes be done in one dental visit. The placement usually requires no incisions or stitches. Recovery time, if required, is frequently very short. Most patients are able to eat dinner that evening. Don’t let the word “mini” fool you; your smile can receive a maximum upgrade with mini dental implants in Trinity. If you are missing one or more teeth, talk to us about dental implants.
