You have probably heard of dental implants, but have you heard of mini dental implants? These are similar to regular dental implants—only they are smaller. Mini dental implants are often used to support dental restorations which replace missing teeth, including dentures, dental bridges, and fixed crowns. Mini dental implants are also good for stabilizing loose and lower arch dentures.
Why are mini dental implants used? They can help those patients lacking strong supportive bone to support a normal dental implant. Your dentist can use the remaining healthy bone structure to replace missing teeth and support a mini implant to restore your healthy, beautiful smile.
Another benefit to mini dental implants includes time; Dr. Michael Sanchez, DDS can install these restorations within one visit at Renaissance Dental with the help of anesthesia and without using sutures, so, no stitches are required.
To care for your mini dental implants is very much like caring for your natural teeth. You simply brush them twice a day, floss once a day, and rinse daily. In addition, you will still want to attend your routine dental cleaning and checkups every six months. These simple actions will make sure that your mini dental implant, just like your smile, is well cared for.
