Welcome to another June installment of the Advanced Dental of Las Cruces blog! We are happy that you stopped by our online home. We can’t wait to see your smiling face in one of our chairs this summer. It’s alright if you aren’t in the mood to smile right now, we can probably fix that while you are here.
If you have ever experienced tooth loss and grown sick and tired of having to deal with slippery dentures, our compassionate crew of oral health care professionals can get you some relief.
The good news is that Dr. Reiter is something of an expert when it comes to restorative dentistry. Additionally, you aren’t as limited for treatment options as you would have been in the good old days of dentistry. In fact, replacement solutions for adult teeth have greatly improved.
With today’s post, we want to explore something really unique: a mini dental implant. When you are finished with our brief overview, make sure you let us know if you have any lingering questions or in the event that you are ready to move forward.
How Is It Different?
The only distinction 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. Try saying that 3 times!
We often call these minis denture-retention implants, because they do just that: bring stability to your bottom dentures.
There are other uses too. And we initially began offering dental mini implant procedures after seeing a rise in patients who were not good candidates for traditional dental implants.
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.
What Is The Process?
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 best part 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.
