…upset about missing teeth?
…sick of dentures that slip and slide?
…ashamed about the problems in your mouth?
…looking for a compassionate dentist in New Mexico who can improve your life?
Then you will love what we can do for you! We are all about restorative dentistry! And we understand that any kind of tooth loss as an adult will be a traumatic experience that cries out for a good solution. In earlier eras, your options would have been slim.
Luckily, replacement options for teeth have only gotten better through the years. Dentures, implants, and the like have helped folks immensely. But today we want to look at something really special: a mini dental implant.
Tell Me More!
You may have already figured out that the primary distinction between traditional dental implants and mini dental implants is really just the size of the hardware.
It turns out that mini dental implants are several millimeters smaller in diameter than standard dental implants. That said, both of these styles of implants are made from titanium that naturally bonds to your jawbone through a process known as osseointegration. That is the nice thing.
In dental circles these minis are referred to as denture-retention implants. That’s because mini dental implants are mostly called upon to stabilize bottom dentures. Still, the smaller-diameter implants can be used in other areas of your mouth too.
Why bother with the little guys? Well, around here, we first started offering dental mini implant procedures after seeing a rise in patients who were not good candidates for traditional dental implants.
In case you didn’t know, in order to receive dental implants, you need to have a certain amount of jawbone and be in good health, generally speaking.
The cool thing is that, in contrast to standard dental implants, our mini dental implants for dentures can be placed for patients who have a thin jawbone as it will not necessitate major oral surgery.
When all is said and done, mini dental implants provide us with a great way to stabilize your dentures and preserve your jawbone, giving you a more vibrant look, while allowing you to eat all the healthy foods you love.
What Does It Entail?
There’s really nothing to it. To place mini dental implants, we just create a tiny hole in the jawbone and then place the titanium rods. After the implants have sufficiently fused with your jawbone, we’ll place durable and great-looking dentures.
The functionality of our mini dental implants is strong and dependable, and the treatment is far more affordable than conventional dental implants.
What more could you ask for?
