Creating a future for someone that they would not have had otherwise is one of our favorite things about dentistry. We love the look on our patients’ faces when they realize that their new smile really is theirs! We see a lot of patients who really want dental implants, but they have been without teeth for so long that their jawbone is too thin to support standard implants. That’s why we love mini dental implants. The smaller implant is available for thinner jawbones!
Previously, if a patient came in without adequate bone width, we would have to do painful bone grafts. Sometimes we would have to do 2 or 3 bone and skin grafts to get the jaw in shape enough to take dental implants. This process could take a year or more! With all of the healing that was required of the patient, eating nice meals really went by the wayside. We needed a new solution, and that’s when mini dental implants arrived on the scene!
The Mini Implant Benefit
For patients who want dental implants but have been told their jaw is too narrow, it’s time to come see us! We can give you the dental implant results you’ve been wanting without the painful bone grafts! Mini implants are much smaller than traditional implants, which allows us to effectively place them even when the bone is scarce! You can still get the smile of your dreams, and that’s something that we love doing!
If you’ve been told that you need bone grafting in order to hold dental implants, it’s time to come see us! We can place mini dental implants, which will hold your dentures or crowns just as well as regular implants. Contact us today to learn more about mini dental implants and what they are capable! We can’t wait to see your smile!
