Benefits of Mini Dental Implants

Posted by Healthy Smile Dental Care on Mar 11 2022, 08:31 AM

Mini dental implants offer the same benefits as standard implants. But unlike traditional implants, you can use your artificial tooth or teeth right away. Dr. Judex Ramirez and Healthy Smile Dental Care can handle your dental concerns.

What Is a Mini Dental Implant

A mini implant is a one-piece, solid screw with a smaller diameter than a standard implant. Mini implants are commonly used to secure a lower denture, but they can be used anywhere in the mouth. 

Mini dental implants can be used if you have lost significant jaw bone mass. If you do have any of the following, you are eligible:

  • Lost teeth and haven't gotten them replaced.
  • Have had gum disease
  • Have crooked teeth
  • Suffered an injury that resulted in a tooth being knocked out or broken

Advantages of a Mini Dental Implant

Minor Surgery Needed

Mini implants are for patients who are unable or unwilling to undergo complex surgery. The mini implant procedure is less invasive, and the artificial tooth can be placed in a matter of hours, with a shorter healing time.

Maintains Facial Appearance

Mini implants, like standard implants, are fixed into the jaw bone to serve as a replacement tooth root. This avoids facial collapse caused by bone mass loss in the absence of stimulation from a tooth root.

Reduced Discomfort

Because there is less disruption of soft tissue and bone, most patients only require over-the-counter pain relievers for a day or two after the procedure.

Increased Convenience

In most cases, the mini implant procedure can be completed in a single appointment. Most patients are able to resume normal activities the following day, with no dietary restrictions.

Improved Denture Fit

Mini implants, unlike dentures, do not feel awkward or slip. They can, however, be used to re-align dentures so that they fit better.

Appropriate for Elderly Patients

Because the procedure is quick and easy, the elderly can benefit from mini implant treatment.

Complications Are Unlikely

Complications from mini implant treatment are uncommon, especially in the hands of an experienced dentist.
