3 Major Benefits of Mini Dental Implants
Dental implants are a revolutionary tool in dentistry. This tool can help patients without ANY teeth get function and beauty back in their mouth. Dental implants are nothing short of life-changing. Parkway Dental, your Snellville GA dental office, is providing elite both traditional dental implants and mini dental implants — the same as traditional implants but only smaller in diameter — to restore your smile.
If you have missing teeth, dental implants might be the answer to your problems. You can schedule your FREE consultation by calling us at 770-676-1122. During that visit, we’ll show you some of the major benefits of dental implants when it comes to function and appearance. To be a candidate for traditional dental implants, you’ll need to be in good oral overall health and have enough jawbone to support the implant. A mini dental implants might be an appropriate option for a patient with thin jawbone or jawbone recession. Today we want to showcase some of the benefits of mini dental implants.
A Less Expensive Full-mouth Reconstruction
Dental implants are typically used for full-mouth reconstructions, or when the person has no more of their remaining teeth. These types of procedures are not cheap, but Parkway Dental still strives to give you a better smile with affordable dental services. Every dental office is different, but a mini dental implant is typically less than half the cost of a traditional dental implant. If you’re looking to replace an entire arch of missing teeth, then mini dental implants can save your thousands of dollars.
And remember, mini dental implants also merge with the jawbone, so you won’t have to sacrifice function!
Less Invasive Procedure
Replacing teeth with dental implants can sometimes be a multi-phases process. Whenever the teeth are lost, the jawbone will recede. That jawbone recession will drastically change your face and make it difficult to find a good fit for your removable dentures. Bad dentures are probably the number one reason patients request dental implants. But often we see patients with significant jawbone recession. When the recession reaches a certain point, your mouth may not be able to support traditional dental implants. In many cases, you’ll need to go through additional oral surgery to build up the jawbone through grafting to support a regular implant.
Mini dental implants are used to help patients forego additional bone grafting, which adds time and recovery to your procedure. The less invasive the procedure, the better.
Better Function Means Healthier Smile
We mentioned earlier that patients using removable denture see changes in their mouth and complain about their dentures moving around in their mouth. Dentures only provide about 25 to 50 percent of the biting force of natural teeth. With the reduction sin biting force, it’s difficult to maintain a healthier diet. Whenever we place mini dental implants, we can give you function close to natural teeth, So you can eat whatever you want again, and open up your diet to healthier foods.
These are just three benefits of mini dental implants. Give us a call today at 770-676-1122 to book your first consultation with us.
