DIA Dental Implants Centers‘ Mini dental implants have been called the most advanced implant technology in the world, though every “best” is debatable. What is certain is that these implants have helped millions of denture wearers secure their dentures in place, thus beginning an entirely new life for themselves.
The beauty of mini dental implants is that they work alongside dentures to give people a middle of the road solution to restoring tooth function. Mini dental implants are implanted into the gums and the denture is securely fixed to the implants. This means that denture wearers can enjoy the benefits of dentures along with the fixed functionality of implants. It’s a best of both worlds solution that restores the teeth to a more natural state.
When people lose teeth, they lose a great deal of freedom they might not have considered before. People are no longer able to talk normally. Eating becomes more difficult and eating some things becomes impossible, depending on where the tooth loss has occurred.
These difficulties get worse over time. Dental implants are one of the best ways to conquer the problem of missing teeth and return to a more comfortable life. An implant dentist can evaluate a patient for mini dental implants and determine whether or not the patient is a good candidate for this type of tooth replacement. The dentist will discuss all replacement options, strongly emphasizing the new breakthrough of mini dental implants.
At the end of the visit, the patient can decide what course of treatment to restore tooth function. The dentist will describe the procedure, prepare the patient for performing every necessary action for a positive outcome, and answer any questions that the patient has about their implants. When this is taken care of, the procedure is scheduled and all the patient has to do is show up to the office to get his dental implants in Los Angeles.
The entire procedure takes only a few hours and is extremely comfortable to the patient. At the end of the procedure, the dentures are stabilized by the mini dental implants and the patient leaves the office with a brand new life.
Mini dental implants are a smaller and more versatile alternative to traditional dental implants. At about half the diameter of their counterparts, mini dental implants can be used in situations where other implants cannot be placed. They are perfect for narrow spaces, for anchoring bridges and dentures, and for patients who have lost bone mass in their jaw. With mini dental implants, specialists have opened the door to a whole new world for patients who were previously ineligible for this type of treatment.
Mini dental implants are most commonly used to hold full sets of dentures in place. Four to six mini implants are inserted into the jaw and act as a base. A full bridge is then snapped permanently into place. Because mini implants are so small, an incision is often not required, and if it is, it is very small. This means the procedure is minimally invasive and eliminates the lengthy recovery of other implant procedures. Patients who opt for mini dental implants are able to eat the same day as their procedure, even when the procedure is used to replace a full set of teeth.
Why Choose Mini Dental Implants?
Mini dental implants are extremely versatile and can be used in situations where a patient has been previously told they were ineligible to receive dental implants. The dental implants specialists at Dental Implants might recommend them to a patient for several reasons. Because mini dental implants don’t require as much jaw mass for support as traditional implants, they can be used on patients who have been missing their teeth for quite some time.
Their small diameter means that mini dental implants can be used to fill small spaces. Some patients have tiny gaps, either because their teeth are small or because their teeth have shifted. Mini dental implants are only 1.8 millimeters in diameter, which means they can go where traditional implants cannot. They are also very useful for anchoring partial dental bridges in place.
Some other advantages of choosing mini dental implants
Minimally invasive – The incision to place mini dental implants is extremely tiny, which means less post-procedure discomfort and faster heeling time.
Fewer trips to the dentist – Because mini dental implants can be placed in one visit, they require less overall time in the dentist’s chair to maintain.
More patients are eligible – Patients who previously thought they couldn’t support implants are eligible for mini dental implants.
Can replace one tooth or all teeth – The uses for mini dental implants are so vast that they can be used to replace just one tooth, a few teeth, or all of your teeth.
Often a more affordable option – Mini dental implants are often an affordable alternative to traditional solutions, reducing the cost by as much as 50% in some cases. Because mini implants are less expensive, more patients can choose to stabilize their loose dentures or replace their dentures entirely.
Comfortable – Mini dental implants are extremely comfortable. The rubbing, sliding and pinching of removable appliances will be a mere memory.
Ease of care – Every mini dental implant treatment is unique, but you will care for your new teeth by brushing and flossing twice a day, and by visiting your dentist twice a year. There are no extra steps.
Mini Dental Implants Can Stabilize Dentures
One of the biggest complaints among dentures patients is discomfort and the fact that their dentures make them feel just as self-conscious as they were before they replaced their teeth. Dentures can slip and slide around the mouth causing not only pain, but also severe anxiety. Nobody wants their dentures to pop out of their mouth during a party or other social gathering. For this reason, many denture wearers suffer alone. But mini dental implants can give you a new outlook on life. The implants can be used to anchor a full set of teeth into place. Your new teeth will not only stay in your mouth, but they will look and feel far less bulky than traditional dentures.
