Dental implants are a substitute for missing teeth. In many ways, they are the best alternative to your original teeth. Dental implants can be used for one tooth or multiple teeth. They can also be used to attach your dentures or, primarily replace your dentures. Implants are made of biocompatible materials, much like the materials used in hip implants and many other procedures. Dental implants will feel and act like real teeth. You can eat and chew without pain. There is no need to use glue when you anchor your dentures to the implant. Dental implants also maintain your bone structure and support your facial tissues.

There are two phases to the dental implant procedure. In phase one, a small incision is made in the gum tissue. This is followed by creating a small pilot hole which is then enlarged to the proper size. Then, the dental implant is placed in the jawbone. The gum tissue is now closed and the healing period begins.
In phase two, an abutment is placed on the implant. Then, the new tooth crown is placed on the abutment. Phase two is now over. Dental implants will feel and function like your natural teeth.

Mini Dental Implants
In some instances, a ‘mini’ dental implant may be necessary. It is quite often the case to use mini dental implants for situations that require a smaller implant. Usually, a mini implant would be used for smaller teeth or incisors.

The mini dental implant is also used to hold dentures securely in place. This process greatly affects the way your dentures feel. Your dentures will feel much more usable.

Mini implants are smaller and cost less. They do not use screws as traditional implants do. And, the process is less invasive. You will heal faster and be ready to smile once again.  Contact us for further details.
