The Difference In Style
Dental implants are your best bet for replacements following tooth loss as an adult.
The only difference with the minis is that mini dental implants are several millimeters smaller in diameter than conventional dental implants. Both of these styles of implants are made from titanium that naturally fuses with your jawbone through a process known as osseointegration.
We often call these minis denture-retention implants, because they do just that: bring stability to your bottom dentures.
But there are other uses as well. In fact, we first began offering dental mini implant procedures after seeing a rise in patients who were not good candidates for traditional dental implants.
In order to qualify for dental implants, you need to have a strong jawbone and be in good health overall.
Here’s the thing that makes minis make sense: our mini dental implants for dentures can be placed in patients who have a thin jawbone as it will not necessitate major oral surgery.
How Does It Work?
In order to install mini dental implants, we simply establish a small hole in the jawbone and then place the titanium rods. After the implants have sufficiently fused with your jawbone, we’ll insert durable and nice-looking dentures.
The functionality of our mini dental implants gets good reviews, and as a bonus, this procedure is far more cost effective than regular old dental implants.
The nice thing is that you’ll be in good hands throughout the process. Dr. Harvey Reiter has nearly five decades of experience in the dental field, with advanced training in restorative services.
You owe it to yourself to see what Dr. Reiter can do to help you restore the health and appearance of your smile, not to mention addressing your desire to eat the foods you love confidently.
