What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the most sought after restorative dental treatment today because of their efficiency and convenience. A dental implant procedure is an appropriate solution if you are missing one tooth or an entire mouthful of teeth.
Dental implants experts can give you full mouth restoration with mini dental implants and full dental implants. Regardless of the nature of the problem related with tooth loss, a dental implant treatment can provide a simple solution with proven results.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of bio-compatible materials implanted into the jawbone using a painless and simple procedure. These implants are customized to suit your particular oral situation. They are designed to replicate and feel completely natural while still being fully functional and preventing further tooth decay or trauma to the mouth. Titanium dental implants have biocompatible materials that offer durability and strength for long lasing functionality.

Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are less than 2.5 mm in diameter, which is smaller in size compared to a regular dental implant. However, just because they are diminutive in size doesn’t mean the results cannot be as effective for patients who require implants.
Mini dental implants can be positioned quickly and since they require no incision or stitches they are ideal for certain cases. Additionally an existing denture can frequently be used further reducing time and cost. Dentures can also be secured by the mini dental implants the same day they are placed. A denture cannot usually be secured by regular dental implants for 4 to 6 months after they are placed.
Since no incision or dental surgery is required for mini dental implants, they make an ideal treatment option to high risk groups, including:
- Heart patients with a recent surgery
- People with a severe case of diabetes
- Patients who prefer the lower denture to be more firm
- Those with a limited budget for other options
- Those who are regular smokers
- Patients with blood clot problems
- Patients getting bisphosphonate treatments or medicines for osteoporosis
