Find out if mini implants could be the answer to your tooth loss problems.
Are you dealing with tooth loss and looking for a long-term solution to your dental woes? Is the idea of dentures or dental bridges just not enough to give you the stability and comfort you need for your smile? Do dental implants sound like a great option until you realize the time commitment and extensive procedures required to get them? Then find out more about mini implants from your Geneseo dentist Dr. Sandra Eleczko and how they could restore your smile quickly.
What are mini implants?
Mini implants look similar to regular dental implants, which resemble titanium screws or posts. The only difference is that mini implants are smaller than normal implants and are often used to replace small teeth and incisors.
Who is a good candidate for mini implants?
Good candidates for traditional dental implants are those who have strong, healthy jawbones. Luckily, mini implants now make it possible for those who lack the same bone density or don’t have enough gum tissue to still replace their missing teeth. Mini implants can also be used to replace several or all of your missing teeth by holding a bridge or denture firmly in place. So whether you are missing one or all of your teeth, mini dental implants might be the right treatment for you.
What should I expect when I get mini implants in Geneseo?
Getting mini implants is much easier and faster than traditional implants. While regular dental implants require multiple surgeries and several months of healing to finally get your new tooth, mini implants expedite the process.
You can get your new tooth in just one procedure, which takes about one to two hours to complete. It’s performed under local anesthesia so you won’t experience any pain or discomfort. Also, since this procedure is less invasive you will have a shorter recovery time. Once the mini implants are placed you can start to use them immediately.
What are the benefits of mini implants?
Mini implants give you a complete smile once again so eating and speaking are significantly easier. Furthermore, mini dental implants function and look just like a normal tooth so you won’t even be able to tell you are sporting a false tooth.
Also, because mini implants are smaller they often cost less than traditional implants. Feel free to your Geneseo dentist Dr. Eleczko about a payment plan to make mini dental implants more affordable option for you.
