Benefits of Mini Dental Implants

Men and women throughout Sacramento, CA who have visited Andrea Joy Smith, DDS because of broken, damaged or missing teeth are experiencing the fantastic benefits that mini dental implants have to offer. Approved by the FDA as a long-term method of denture stabilization and tooth implantation, mini dental implants have become increasingly popular among dentists and patients alike. Discover the many benefits this implant procedure provides and see if MDIs are right for you:

Size. Mini dental implants are much smaller than traditional dental implants, making it easier to replace as little as a single tooth. MDIs can replace, one some or all of a patients teeth quickly and easily. The small implant size also allows more patients to undergo the procedure. With traditional implant procedures, patients often required bone grafts to thicken the jawbone and allow for implantation. The mini dental implant size greatly reduces the need for bone grafts, making the procedure quicker, easier and less invasive.

Time. Traditional dental implants take months to complete. The implant must first be placed and must fuse with the bone in order to create a permanent structure. After months of healing (typically three) the implant can then be attached to the bone, which then allows the prosthetic tooth to be placed. Unlike standard implants, mini dental implants allow for immediate loading. This means that patients can walk out of Dr. Smith's office on the day of the procedure with an implant in place that is not only stable, but also can be used immediately.

Versatility. Mini dental implants are more than just implants. MDIs can be used to replace missing teeth, but also aid in other dental procedures such as dentures and crowns. Mini dental implants, above all else, provide support for long-term dental prosthetics.

Whether used to support crowns, dentures or as a permanent tooth replacement, MDIs have many benefits for patients who are looking to rectify tooth loss. For more information or to set up a mini dental implant consultation visit Andrea Joy Smith, DDS in Sacramento, CA today.
