Are you worried that your jawbone density may not be full enough for a regular dental implant? Do you worry about bone grafting and additional surgeries? We offer mini dental implants for the convenience of our patients.
What Are Mini Implants?
Have you heard of mini dental implants? The reason behind a smaller titanium post is to make implants more available for patients who don’t have the jaw density needed for larger implants. Instead of having to worry about bone grafting, a smaller post is placed in the jaw.
Benefits of Mini Implants at Hillsboro Dental Excellence
At Hillsboro Dental Excellence, we have your health in mind. If a mini implant will work for you, we want you to have the advantage of a dental implant without all the hassle and cost. A mini implant provides a stable base for your prosthetic tooth, so you can still enjoy the stability of a dental implant.
Dental implants can also help with the following:
- Encouraging bone regrowth.
- Restoring your full smile.
- Increasing your confidence.
- Improving your facial structure.
- Providing stability for your replacement tooth.
While traditional bridges may seem less stable or strong, a mini implant provides a stable base for your new tooth.
How Do Mini Implants Work?
The mini dental implant post is about the same circumference as a toothpick. This miniature post is made from titanium alloy and provides a strong, secure anchor for your replacement tooth. Because the post is small, some prosthetic teeth can be placed almost immediately.
The mini dental implant also has a small ball at the end of the post. Your denture or the new tooth can then snap into place over the ball. This crown is made to look and feel like your natural teeth and is designed to create a secure attachment with the implant.
Can I Use a Mini Implant With Dentures?
Many patients with mini dental implants have them placed in the lower jaw when using them for a full-arch denture. However, a mini implant can also be used in the top arch, especially if placing for just one tooth.
Why People Love Mini Dental Implants
Aside from the stability offered by a mini implant, our patients can also benefit from the following:
- Implants keep food out, whereas traditional dentures or dental bridges can trap food underneath.
- Most patients can speak or chew their food without worrying if dental work will come flying out.
- Implants are easier to clean.
- Many patients enjoy the more natural, more definite fit.
- No worrying about dental bridges or dentures slipping or wiggling unnecessarily.
Mini implants can help some of our patients enjoy the benefits of dental implants without worrying so much about bone density. Once the implants are placed, bone density is likely to improve on its own.
How Much Do Mini Implants Cost?
We understand you are concerned about the cost of dental implants. Our goal is to provide a way for you to get the smile you’ve always wanted. We can work with your dental insurance company to see how much of your implant work is covered to minimize your out of pocket expenses.
We also offer payment plans and different forms of payment. If you are concerned about cost, please call us, and we can work out the best payment plan for your situation. You deserve to chew and smile your best!
