What Are Mini Dental Implants?

Dental implants

Dental implants are placed in your gums as a replacement for natural teeth. If you lose a natural tooth for any reason or have to have them extracted, dental implants are a great way to replace them. It is a permanent solution and looks and acts like your natural teeth. A dental implant can potentially last a lifetime if no other issues arise.

However, regular dental implants may not be suitable for everyone. For various reasons, your dentist may suggest against getting dental implants. However, this does not mean that you can’t get the treatment at all. Instead, you can opt for mini dental implants.

Mini Dental Implants

As evident by the name, mini dental implants are smaller than regular dental implants. However, the smaller portion is the one that is fixed inside the gum. This means the portion that is above the gum line – the actual tooth – appears the same as a natural tooth or a regular dental implant.

Do You Need a Dental Implant? 

Having a missing tooth can be embarrassing to some people. It can affect your smile and may even change the shape of your face, possibly affecting your self-confidence. However, it is essential to note that a missing tooth is not only a cosmetic issue.

Even a single missing tooth can wreak havoc in your mouth. It affects the way your jaw works and can cause uneven wear on the rest of the teeth. In addition, it can cause issues as you try to chew, which can further lead to digestive problems.

Overall, if you have a missing tooth, it is crucial to find a solution as soon as possible. And a mini dental implant may be just the thing you need. If you live in Windsor, Greeley, Eaton, Ault, Fort Collins, or Pierce, visit Severance Dental for a free no-obligation consultation today.
