Dentist in Putney describes Mini Dental Implants

A dental implant is a component in cosmetic and restorative dentistry that allows for patients to replace missing teeth. A traditional implant is typically long and wide in diameter and used as a false tooth, but does require patients to have enough bone structure for it to hold. However, when elderly patients need tooth replacement options, or patients who have lost bone due to periodontal disease, they may not have sufficient bone for a traditional dental implant to be placed. This is when the team of Gentle Dental Putney will speak to patients about the benefits of placing mini dental implants instead.

In Putney, many patients will be acceptable candidates for mini dental implants. Patients who do not have enough bone or would require bone grafting for conventional implants will benefit from having mini implants placed. At Gentle Dental Putney, we can provide the appropriate diagnostics to determine if patients can enjoy the placement of these dental implants for tooth replacement or denture stabilization.

Mini dental implants are convenient. They are quickly placed in the mouth with local anesthetics and have much less healing time than traditional implants. Patients find these brief, non-surgical appointments to be much less nerve-wracking than full-fledge oral surgery required for the alternative, and are excited to learn that mini dental implants can provide many of the same advantages. Traditional implants also require several weeks or months to allow the process of osseointegration to occur to hold the implant firmly in place, while mini dental implants can be restored right away with dentures or dental crowns. This allows patients the chance to boost the appearance of their smile without having to wait an extended period of time for the final results.

If you have been turned down for traditional dental implants but are still interested in having them done, the team of Gentle Dental Putney is here to provide you mini dental implants as a wonderful alternative. Contact our team today to book a consultation appointment and learn more about the advantages of mini dental implants over traditional restorations.
