Whether have just lost teeth or have been living with traditional dentures for decades, you can have a complete smile with replacement teeth that feel as good as the real thing. One way to do that is by getting mini dental implants.
1. Your New Teeth Are Secure
Traditional dentures can do a great job of restoring your smile. Unfortunately, they also can slip and slide around, which can be embarrassing when you try to speak or attempt to eat certain foods. With mini implants, your dentures — or bridge or crown — are anchored to your jaw. This keeps your new teeth from moving when you bite, chew, or tell your favorite joke.
2. You Don’t Need a Bone Graft
When you lose your teeth, you are no longer stimulating your jaw when you bite and chew. Without roots or implants to replace your roots, your jaw will slowly lose bone tissue. If the bone loss is too great, you may need to get a bone graft before you can get implants.
If you get mini implants, however, you could avoid a bone graft entirely.
3. You Recover More Quickly
Since mini implants are smaller, placing them is a less invasive procedure. This can reduce your recovery time and allow you to enjoy the benefits of your implant-supported replacement teeth sooner.
