What are Mini Dental Implants
Mini implants are slightly smaller than regular dental implants are made from titanium, just like the larger ones, and are 10 to 15 mm long and 1.8 to 3.3mm in diameter.
What They Replace
Supporting most types of replacement teeth, including fixed crowns, bridges and dentures, mini dental implants can also be used to secure lower and loose arch dentures.
Regular dental implants can take several weeks or months and will require two or more appointments with your dentist. If you require bone grafting, you will need additional dental appointments. If you are unable to have invasive surgery, would like to forego numerous dental appointments, or don’t have enough bone in your jaw for full sized implants, mini dental implants could be the perfect fit. Mini implants can usually be fitted on the same day, without anesthesia or stitches. Best of all, you can use your replacement teeth the same day.
Mini dental implants are one of the best replacements for missing teeth, and can give you a reason to smile again. Your dentist in East Greenbush has the experience and the expertise give you back your self-confidence.
