mini dental implants scranton paMini dental implants are just what they sound like: they are small-scale versions of traditional dental implants. The smaller screws of mini dental implants are less invasive and are ideal for replacing smaller or hard to get to teeth.

Mini dental implants can also be more effective in serving as anchors for lower jaw, partial dentures.

These smaller-scale versions of traditional implants are also a better option for those with less bone density in their jaw that would otherwise not make them candidates for traditional dental implants.

Advantages of Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants allow patients to get adequate treatment for their missing teeth or partial dentures. Patients who would otherwise not have been able to afford traditional implants or whose jaw bone density was too poor for regular implants can now get the help they need.

Besides the lower costs, smaller size and non-invasiveness, mini dental implants are easier to insert. While traditional dentures require two visits to the dentist office, mini dental implants can be inserted in only one appointment.

Just because they are small doesn’t  mean that they aren’t as strong and durable as traditional dental implants. Mini dental implants are just as effective and reliable as traditional implants, but for smaller teeth and dentures.

As great as mini dental implants are, they are not for everyone. It is important to talk to one of our dentists to see if mini dentures or traditional dentures are the best option for your specific dental needs.

When considering dental implants, whether traditional dental implants or mini dental implants, have them done by a certified dental professional. Not all dentists are certified to fit patients with implants.

Who uses them? 

The patient we are envisioning has probably gone many years with a hole in their smile. Fortunately, the hole is where a small, premolar was towards the back of theirmouth. Because it is located in an area where it is mainly hidden and unnoticed, they decided not to do anything about it. Until now. 

They realized that eating on that side of the mouth became more cumbersome and the teeth surrounding the gap began to move and shift and become crooked. They thought that a dental implant is their best and only option.  However, now they probably realize they need work done now to avoid the future dental treatments.

Mini dental implants are the perfect solution. Call today to schedule your consultation with your local Cosmetic Dentist in Scranton PA. We can help get you smiling confidently again in no time.
