Mini dental implants are just like regular dental implants, except they are smaller and they don’t require as much time to place. They can successfully enhance your smile by replacing your missing teeth. They can anchor to the underlying bone and support tooth-replacement restorations, like dental crowns, dental bridges, and dentures. They can also help stabilize loose dentures and lower arch dentures.
These restorations are handy when you can’t replace your missing teeth with full dental implants because of a compromised underlying bone. The bone can’t support the full implant because it requires so much. Fortunately, mini dental implants are less invasive to place. In fact, your dentist, Dr. Sheldon Kupferman, can place the dental implants in one appointment at our office. Your dentist can do so without the use of sutures and with the use of sedation and anesthesia.
Once the implants are placed in your mouth, it’s important to keep them in top-notch condition. You can do so by brushing them every morning and every night, flossing them once a day, and rinsing your mouth daily. You also need to visit Riverdale Dental Arts every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam.
