As part of your consultation, you’ll receive full mouth X-rays which will help us determine a specific treatment plan just for you. We’ll go over all available financing options as well as any additional details to help put you at ease with the entire process.
After your consultation, you and your dentist will agree on a created treatment plan specifically tailored to you. Every case is different, so we will have a personalized approach to your specific needs in line with giving you the best smile you’ve had in years.
On your final visit, your mini dental implants are placed and assessed to make sure they are a perfect fit and that they feel comfortable for the patient. Most patients who have missing teeth leave the office with a beautiful and happy smile in as little as one visit.
Mini Dental Implants are often a fraction of the cost of traditional implants. Financing options may also be available.
Replacing a single tooth with a single tooth implant does not endanger the health of the neighboring teeth. Because a dental implant will replace your tooth root, the bone is better preserved. Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact.
Several missing teeth can also be replaced with individual implants. With this method, a dental implant will be placed at the site of each missing tooth, providing ideal replicas of your lost teeth. Multiple teeth may also be restored with an implant bridge, which is a prosthetic comprised of three or more crown units, depending upon the number of missing teeth.
One of the most rewarding and exciting new procedures in dentistry today is the system for making loose dentures tight and comfortable. Mini dental implants provide denture patients with the ability to eat, smile and speak with confidence. In as little as 1 hour, 4-6 dental implants can be placed and your dentures can be fitted over the implants. The patient leaves the office with stable denture which can be used IMMEDIATELY.
In addition, placement of these implants results in little to no post operative discomfort. Many patients who were not candidates for conventional implants because they didn’t have enough bone or because of finances are now mini dental implant candidates.
Made of Hybrid Resin or Zirconia, the removable bridge involves placement of between 6-10 implants, determined by bone volume and bone quality. This is a fixed hybrid bridge that can be detached by the dentist as needed at recall cleaning visits.
The Fixed Roundhouse Zirconia Bridge involves placement of between 10-12 implants, determined by the bone volume and bone quality. The final bridge is tried in for patient comfort and aesthetic approval and then cemented in place. You no longer need to worry about your teeth moving or falling out because this is a cemented zirconia bridge.
