Are Dental Implants Right for You?

Dental implants are a modern and permanent alternative to dentures and bridges. They are a solution to the often-embarrassing issue of missing teeth and can help restore your smile to the brilliant, beautiful shine that you want.

What can you expect from your dental implants?

  • Replace single or multiple missing teeth
  • Utilize titanium rods to attach the implant base to the jawbone, using an abutment to attach the implant
  • The jawbone implant is permanent. It takes 3-6 months to heal and completely bind with the jawbone before the permanent tooth implant is attached
  • Dental implants feel like real teeth when chewing, talking, etc.
  • They can help to halt bone loss and prevent further bone decay
  • Prevent tooth movement and help to maintain smile structure
  • Permanent alternative to bridges and dentures

Why Choose Mini Implants?

Mini implants are often a more affordable and less invasive solution to dental restoration. They provide an option for those who still have some bone density in the jaw and don’t need as extensive repair to their smile.

The benefits of choosing mini dental implants include:

  • A smaller version of regular/traditional implants
  • Do not require the extensive bone connection or a much smaller section of bone graft
  • More affordable, smaller, and less invasive than standard dental implants
  • Faster recovery time than standard dental implants
  • A better option for when the jawbone is decayed, damaged, or missing
  • Can be used in smaller areas of the mouth
  • Perfect for single tooth replacements
