Dental Implants are the latest innovation in tooth replacement. You are a candidate for dental implants if you have lost one or more teeth. When you have missing teeth, you are putting your mouth at risk for additional complications, also you might be reluctant to smile and often have to miss out on eating your favorite foods. A tooth implant creates a secure way to replace missing teeth and have a natural-feeling, beautiful, smile again.

What are Dental Implants?

  • Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically positioned beneath your gums in the jawbone. The tooth implant will fuse with your jawbone over time, giving you a very secure artificial tooth root.
  • Once the tooth implant is in position in the jaw, an abutment can be placed that is permanent and allows your dentist to make adjustments.
  • A porcelain dental crown is then attached to the abutment to give you a beautiful natural looking tooth which is now stable because of the dental implant that has been secured in your jawbone.

Mini dental implants are another option to fit narrow spaces in your mouth. Mini implants can be used for incisors or smaller teeth. A few core differences between the normal size implants and mini implants include:

  • Unlike the more traditional implants, mini implants do not contain a screw but still maintain a solid structure and offer an excellent source of security for replacement teeth.
  • The mini implant is not fully submerged during the procedure.
  • Traditional dental implants are twice the size of a mini implant.
  • Mini implants are less expensive.
