There are many ways to lose a tooth, like injury or gum disease. Losing a tooth can be a disheartening experience, impacting your confidence and oral health. However, traditional tooth replacement options like bridges and dentures have drawbacks like slippage and chewing inefficiency. Fortunately, mini dental implants are changing modern dentistry.
At Hope Dental, Dr. Ras and his team have the experience to replace your missing tooth or teeth quickly and skillfully. Using mini dental implant technology, restoring your smile and confidence is a simple process with many benefits.
What Are Mini Dental Implants?
Mini dental implants are slender, titanium posts, smaller in diameter than standard dental implants. Unlike their larger counterparts, mini implants are incredibly versatile and capable of being placed in areas with limited bone density. They offer a stable anchor for replacement teeth and are often used to support crowns, bridges, and dentures.
The secret behind their success lies in their unique design. Mini dental implants have a ball-and-socket attachment system that differs from traditional implant models. The mini implant design offers patients secure, functional, and efficient solutions for tooth replacement.
Additionally, Dr. Ras can place mini implants with a minimally invasive technique that typically takes just one visit to complete. You can look forward to immediate results, a quick recovery, and a long-lasting smile with mini dental implants. By replacing your missing teeth with these tried and true devices, you’ll experience enhanced chewing efficiency and speech clarity without the hassles of traditional implants.
Tooth Replacement Using Mini Dental Implants
- Consultation and evaluation: The first step to a confident smile begins with a consultation with Dr. Ras. During this visit, he will evaluate your oral health, assess your bone density, and discuss your treatment options. A personalized treatment plan will be developed if mini dental implants are deemed suitable.
- Tooth extraction (if needed): Next, in cases where the damaged or compromised tooth is still in place, a tooth extraction may be necessary. Dr. Ras will carefully remove the tooth to make way for the mini dental implant.
- Implant placement: Once you’re ready for the procedure, Dr. Ras will numb the treatment area to ensure your comfort. Then, he will place the mini dental implant directly into the jawbone using a minimally invasive technique. This implant serves as the foundation for your new tooth.
- Temporary placement: Then, Dr. Ras typically puts a temporary restoration on the implants right away, offering immediate results. After this step, he takes impressions of your teeth to send to the dental lab.
- Final restoration: Once your custom-made restoration is ready, Dr. Ras will attach it to your implants. This could be a single crown to replace an individual tooth, a bridge for multiple missing teeth, or an implant-retained denture for full arch replacement. The result is a seamless, natural-looking smile that restores your teeth’s appearance and function.
