…to give our patients smiles which they can be proud of. If you have missing teeth, you may need dental implants. We don’t want you to suffer from a smile that embarrasses you.
Benefits of Dental ImplantsBesides appearance, dental implants are needed for good dental health. Food, plaque, and bacteria will build up wherever you are missing teeth. This buildup can be really hard to clean, so you may end up developing cavities and other dental problems. Dental implants have many other benefits too. It is easier to eat with them. Also, many people find that their speech is much better.
How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants are used to replace your teeth roots. They act as roots (and a base) for permanent teeth that will be placed later. Without implants, your artificial teeth will be weak, and you may end up losing them.
When done correctly and cared for properly, dental implants can last a patient’s whole life. It is still important to brush your teeth, floss, and use mouthwash with implants. It is also important to maintain routine dental checkups to ensure your mouth is still healthy.
Mini Dental ImplantsWe are proud to offer mini-dental implants (MDIs) to our patients. Mini-dental implants, otherwise known as MDIs, are used when regular implants will not work. They were introduced ten years ago and continue to be a good alternative to traditional implants due to their small size. Regular implants are normally 3.75 mm, while mini-dental implants range from 1.8 to 3 mm.
The placement of MDIs is significantly different from traditional ones. Typically you can get the whole procedure done in one day, instead of having to make multiple visits. It is a minimally invasive procedure, unlike traditional implants, which requires cutting into your mouth tissue. Instead, the mini-dental implants are drilled into your gums.
MDIs are used mostly for the stabilization of loose dentures, though they are also used to successfully treat single tooth replacements. They are also used for maxillofacial prosthetics and as temporary anchorage devices for orthodontic therapies.
Mini-dental implants are more affordable since they can be done in one visit and are less invasive.
