Mini Dental Implants

Single Tooth Implants | Implant-Supported Bridges | Implant-Retained Dentures

If you are looking for a solution to replace missing teeth or are tired of wearing dentures, you may want to consider mini dental implants. The state-of-the-art restorations continue to grow in popularity as the most effective, long-term solution for tooth loss. We invite you to visit Sensible Dentistry to determine if implant dentistry is right for you.

What Are Mini Dental Implants?

Mini dental implants are screw-like titanium posts that serve as substitutes for missing tooth roots. They provide an incredibly stable and secure foundation to support implant restorations made to look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. Implant dentistry is today's gold standard for replacing missing teeth with superior, incredibly lifelike results. Mini dental implants are a minimally invasive, cost-effective solution that can be completed in a fraction of the time compared to conventional dental implants.

Why Choose Mini Dental Implants?

The development of mini dental implants is considered one of the most significant advances in dentistry, providing results only second to healthy, natural teeth. Your new implant restorations will improve your chewing function, allow you to speak clearly, enhance your facial features, and lower the risk of cavities or sensitivity in nearby teeth.

The most significant advantage implants offer is that they mimic the function of natural tooth roots, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs after tooth loss and enhancing your oral health. Implant dentistry comes with a high success rate, and with proper care, your implant restorations can last a lifetime.

Who Is a Candidate for Mini Dental Implants?

The following are the ideal candidates for dental implants:

  • Healthy Gums: It's essential to have healthy gums for the implant procedure's success. If you have periodontal disease, we may discuss treatment options to allow you to benefit from implant dentistry.
  • Sufficient Bone Density: Dental implants require adequate bone density to support and anchor them.
  • Excellent Oral Hygiene: Patients considering implants must be devoted to maintaining good oral hygiene care. That includes daily brushing and flossing and regular, twice-a-year dental exams and cleanings.
  • No Tobacco Use: Smoking or using tobacco interferes with healing and can decrease the chances of a successful implant procedure. If you currently smoke, consider quitting to safeguard your oral health.

What Are the Types of Implant Restorations?

Sensible Dentistry of Canton is pleased to offer implant crowns, bridges, and implant-retained dentures.

  • Single Tooth Implants: If you are missing a single tooth, a dental crown placed on an implant will restore your healthy smile with incredibly lifelike results.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: An implant-supported bridge restores two or several adjacent teeth, with results comparable to natural, healthy teeth.
  • Implant-Retained Dentures: These removable overdentures rely on several strategically placed implants to replace multiple teeth or complete arches of missing teeth, with incredible stability, function, and durability.

What Is the Implant Procedure?

Dr. Evans will start with an evaluation of your unique needs to determine your jawbone's condition and the best implant procedure. If your bone mass is adequate, Dr. Evans will place an implant in your jawbone and wait for the area to heal, which can take up to three months. During this time, the implant will fuse to the bone in a process called osseointegration, and the implant will become a part of your natural gum line. 

Once the implant is stable enough, Dr. Evans will take an impression of the area to have your final restoration made. The last step is attaching the implant restoration to the implant, leaving you with stunning results.
