MINI DENTAL IMPLANTS
Many people put up with dental issues – along with the associated impact on their quality of life – in the false belief that a corrective procedure would be too time consuming, painful or expensive. However, in many circumstances it is possible to place dental implants and a temporary set of teeth during just one appointment. Mini dental implants can be used in some cases to facilitate the procedure.
When would we use mini dental implants?
Mini dental implants are a screw-type device, generally made of titanium, used to provide temporary support for fixed teeth and to help stabilise removable dentures. To be fair, mini dental implants would not be the choice of treatment for permanent teeth as they do not have the same documented success or reliability as conventional dental implants. So they can be effectively used as a compromise solution for temporary support for fixed teeth or to help stabilise removable dentures.
If you are considering having a dental implant it is essential to find an expert and experienced implant dentist, as not all practitioners are sufficiently skilled and experienced to perform optimum implant and advanced treatments.
