Dental implants are common procedures performed when your smile is missing a tooth, or a tooth has been extracted. These permanent replacement teeth come in two forms – a regular and a mini dental implant. A mini implant, roughly half the size of a regular implant, is used predominately to install full upper and lower dentures.
If you are interested in learning more about mini dental implants near Fairfax, VA then call our office today. There are big benefits to going with mini dental implants which regular implants can’t compete with. One big benefit is that a mini dental implant can be used in situations and in locations where a regular implant is too large to fit. A small mouth, narrow spaces, and around crowded teeth are perfect places where mini implants are required.
When a full set of upper and lower dentures are placed, in which mini implants are perfect for use, a set of these mini implants are placed along the gum line – between 4-6. With this strong base the entire lower and upper set of teeth can be placed directly on the gum line.
Do mini implants sound like something you need? We can help you decide on mini dental implants in Burke, VA at our friendly office. Yet another great benefit to a mini implant is the fact that no incision needs to be made in order to place your new implant. This, of course, eliminates the need for a huge recovery period and the new ‘teeth’ can be placed immediately or after an extremely short amount of time.
