When it comes to dental implants, you have two options: regular dental implants and mini dental implants. Mini dental implants are like regular implants, but they are smaller. They are beneficial restorations that can help you replace your missing teeth by supporting dental appliances, like dentures, dental bridges, and dental crowns. They can also stabilize loose and lower arch dentures.
Mini implants are great tooth-replacement options when gum disease or other issues have compromised your underlying bone structure. If you have weak bones, they won’t be able to support regular dental implants. However, they should be able to support mini dental implants. Fortunately, our dentists can place the mini dental implants in one appointment at our office, Dayton Comprehensive Dentistry. During the appointment, you will use anesthesia and won’t need sutures.
After you have the implants placed, you need to take good care of them. Luckily, caring for them is just like caring for your natural teeth. All you need to do is brush them twice a day, floss them once a day, and rinse the mouth daily. It’s also vital to visit our dental team every six months for a routine dental cleaning and checkup. These things can help you have top-notch mini dental implants.
