Dental Implant

Mini dental implants are similar to traditional dental implants, but they are used for narrow or smaller spaces. This type of implant is perfect for patients that naturally have smaller teeth. Mini dental implants can be used for single tooth restorations or full arch restorations. The procedure for mini dental implants is typically less invasive compared to traditional implants, and is usually a less expensive option.

Traditional dental implants are made of two pieces. The first piece is a screw that acts like the tooth’s root, and the second is an abutment piece or connector that holds the crown in place. Mini dental implants only have one piece that is screwed down into the jawbone. The implant has a ball on top, and this is what allows the crown to affix securely to the implant.

If you have been recommended for mini dental implants there are many benefits to consider.

What Are the Benefits of Mini Dental Implants?

  • Mini dental implants are more affordable compared to other implant solutions.
  • Healing time tends to be reduced because the procedure for mini dental implants is not as involved.
  • The procedure is less invasive compared to other options.
  • Bone grafting may not be needed with mini dental implants even if the patient’s jaw has low bone density.
  • Provide a quality solution for single tooth restorations as well as smaller spaces.
  • Mini dental implants can last a lifetime with good oral hygiene at home.

Am I A Good Candidate for Mini Dental Implants?

Patients that tend to have bone loss are typically good candidates for mini dental implants. Other criteria we look at include patients that do not smoke, grind their teeth, or have gum disease. If patients smoke or have other medical conditions, this increases the chance of implant failure.

During our detailed consultation process we will discuss what the requirements are, and take a good look at your teeth and mouth. This will allow our team to recommend which restorative solution is best for you.

Oral Surgery

You may have been recommended to have oral surgery, and are concerned if you should go through with it or not. Oral surgery has many benefits, and patients need to weigh their options. Our staff will only recommend oral surgery if it is absolutely necessary, or if the patient is unhappy with their mouth, jaw, or smile.

Our team is here to work with each patient to address their goals, and to keep your teeth and mouth healthy and feeing great. We have an extensive consultation process to discuss all oral surgery options or recommendations. Our team will work with each patient to help them choose the best option.

Why Do You Need Oral Surgery?

When a patient is evaluating their oral surgery decision, it is important to think about why you need the oral surgery. If the surgery is to correct a serious condition or complex issue this should weigh into your decision. Oral surgery does involve recovery, but your oral health is more important than the time it takes for the surgery and recovery.

With our high end technology, our patients receive the very best care. Your surgery can be done quickly and with minimal recovery depending on what is required. Our staff is available to provide you with all of the necessary support and supplies for a successful oral surgery.

What Are Your Alternatives to Oral Surgery?

When deciding to have oral surgery many patients would like to discuss if there are any alternatives instead of surgery. Part of our evaluation process is to discuss what alternatives are available, and give our patients all of their options. For example, if you have issues with snoring we may advise you try a night time mouthguard to help before we explore corrective surgery.

In some cases there are no alternatives to oral surgery, and the situation is serious and needs to be addressed immediately. An example of this type of situation would be an impacted tooth or an infected tooth.

Will Oral Surgery Give Me a Better Quality of Life?

If oral surgery will give you a better quality of life and improve your appearance this is a good reason to go through with your decision. Surgery that corrects facial issues or replaces missing teeth to improve your appearance will benefit you immensely. In addition, if the oral surgery is to remove an infected or impacted tooth there is no alternative, and waiting is not an option.
