A mini dental implant is an extra tiny screw which is inserted in the place of a missing tooth. It is made up of titanium so that the jawbone accepts it and allows it to become part of the human body. A prosthetic crown is attached on top of the mini implant so that it fills the gap left by the missing tooth.
It is safe to have a dental implant if the principals of surgical and restorative dentistry are followed.
You have the option of having conscious sedation so that you don’t recall the procedure.
A mini implant tooth will look good, can be chewed on and last many years, providing it is well looked after.
Multiple mini implants can be used to support a longer span of missing teeth. They are simply connected together like a bridge.
The advantages of mini implants:
-less time in the dental chair
-less invasive, therefore quicker healing period
-avoids important structures, such as nerves and sinuses
We will assess your suitability for a mini dental implant at the time of your implant assessment appointment.
