I’m Gerry Casazza of Future of Dentistry in Wakefield. Today’s topic is mini dental implants, sometimes called “immediate implants”.
Though they are not as well known as traditional dental implants, mini implants are also being used successfully in the Wakefield area to improve smiles. Like their larger diameter counterparts, mini implants can support a restoration for one or more missing teeth or replace a bridge or fixed denture. Denture wearers benefit greatly from these slip-free dental implants that are anchored securely in the jaw bone.
In some cases, a patient is unable to receive traditional full-size dental implants due to insufficient bone thickness. There are also mini-implant patients who are not able to undergo dental implant surgery due to health issues. These patients are often excellent candidates for the mini version.
The placement of toothpick-size mini dental implants can sometimes be done in one dental visit. The placement usually requires no incisions or stitches. Recovery time, if needed, is frequently very short. Most patients are able to eat dinner that evening.
Don’t let the word “mini” fool you; your smile can receive a maximum upgrade with mini dental implants. Call Future of Dentistry at 781-245-2299 to schedule a consultation.
