What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a proven alternative for patients who are unhappy or uncomfortable with dentures or partials.

Much like natural teeth, dental implants are rooted to the jawbone and capped with durable, attractive, prosthetic teeth. They perform much like regular teeth, restoring your ability to chew, talk and smile while also preserving the health of your jaw.

Advances in medical technology have led to many new implant options, including mini implants, for replacing one tooth, a few teeth, or an entire row.

What Are Mini Implants?

Mini implants are a new, tested approach to dental implants.

Just like traditional implants, they anchor medically-safe, artificial roots to the jawbone and cap them with attractive replacement teeth. However mini implants, as the name implies, use smaller roots and are attached to the jawbone in a less invasive way.

This allows patients to get a stable restoration in fewer steps and does not require the same jawbone density of traditional implants.

It’s good news for people who didn’t think dental implants were an option due to reasons of health, evidence of bone loss, or financial constraints.

If you have these concerns, schedule an appointment with us to review your options.

Traditional vs. Mini Implants

For both traditional and mini implants, artificial roots are permanently attached to the jawbone. This creates a powerful chewing surface, supports a natural smile, and plays an important role in preserving oral health. Because the roots are permanent, they don’t require any adhesives or special care.

However, the traditional dental implant procedure involves a more complex surgery, office visits, and healing time. Also, patients need to meet certain criteria including having sufficient jawbone density and good general health. Traditional implants offer unmatched stability and long-term success.

Mini implants anchor to the jawbone using a procedure that is less involved and somewhat less invasive. The roots are smaller but still strong enough to support normal chewing. Mini implants are an important alternative for people who have already experienced some bone loss or who have concerns about more invasive or expensive procedures.
