Patients who are missing teeth have lost more than their smiles. Even if you have standard dentures, you may be well aware that they are not the same as having natural teeth. At Drew Family Dentistry, we have seen that mini dental implants can give some big benefits if you or someone you love is looking for something better for your replacement teeth.
1. You can smile with confidence
Like standard implants, mini implants can support and secure restorations including crowns, bridges, and dentures. With mini implants, you can trust that your replacement teeth will look natural and stay in place. Knowing this, you can trust that your smile will look complete.
2. You can eat what you want
Mini implants connect your restorations to your jawbone. This allows you to put more power into every bite and chew. As a result, you are able to eat a wider variety of food than you could with standard dentures and adhesives.
3. You can save time and money
Bone loss in the jaw often occurs when someone loses teeth. If the bone loss is too great, you won’t be able to get dental implants unless you have a bone graft first. That means the expense of another procedure and time to recover before you can get your new teeth. Mini implants can fit where standard implants won’t. As a result, you may be able to get your implant-support restoration without waiting to heal from a bone graft.
