What are mini implants?

Mini implantsHello, I am Dr. Jorge E. Larrondo of Larrondo Dentistry and I would like to explain how a dental implant can help improve your smile.

In a recent post, I explained how traditional dental implants are used to dramatically improve the lives of my Hemet denture and cosmetic dentistry clients. Today’s topic is mini dental implants, sometimes called ‘immediate implants’.

Though they are not as well known as traditional tooth implants, mini implants are also being used successfully in the Hemet and surrounding area to improve smiles. Like their larger diameter counterparts, mini implants can support a restoration for one or more missing teeth or replace a bridge or fixed denture. Many of our denture wearers benefit greatly from these slip free dental implants that are anchored securely in the jaw bone.

In some cases, a patient is unable to receive traditional full-size dental implants due to insufficient bone thickness. There are also Hement mini implant patients who are not able to undergo dental implant surgery due to health issues. These overdenture patients in the 92543 postal code area are often excellent candidates for the mini version.

The placement of toothpick-size mini dental implants can usually be done in one dental visit. The placement usually requires no incisions or stitches. Recovery time, if necessary, is usually very short. Most patients are able to eat dinner that evening.

Many Hemet aesthetic dentistry clients are happy to learn that mini implants are a lower cost dental implants option. Don’t let the word ‘mini’ fool you; your smile can receive a maximum upgrade with mini dental implants.

One thought on “What are mini implants?
  1. You only go to the dentist one or twice a year if you don’t have any pemblros, and even if you do have a problem, you only go a few times more than that. I’d rather pay 10 dollars for a physician because I go there more often than I do the dentist.Also, dental care is really, really expensive, and it’s hard for dental insurance companies to make money because people put the dentist last on their list of places to go unless they’re in unbearable agony. Braces cost $5,000 and up where I live, and even a regular teeth cleaning costs three figures. We have a good friend who is a dentist, and he has a hard time earning a living because people put off going, and when they do come they don’t like to have any work done anyway.I’m sure there are many other reasons for the copays being so high, but this is just my experience.
