At Loberg Professional Dental Corporation in Laguna Hills, our professionals assist patients with restoring their smiles when problems arise. When tooth loss becomes an issue and individuals are seeking ways of replacing them for function and beauty, they may be introduced to the idea of mini dental implants.
Mini dental implants are restorations used to replace a single tooth, anchor a dental bridge, or stabilize dentures. Because they are incredibly versatile, they are often the first choice for patients who need to address missing teeth. Without our teeth, it can be difficult to eat, speak clearly, and feel confident about our appearance. With replacement options, patients will learn that they can keep their smile looking and functioning great and enjoy the benefits of quality dental care.
Mini dental implants are made of titanium. These posts, which look like screws, are placed into the bone of the jaw during oral surgery. If patients are replacing a single tooth, the mini dental implant will have an abutment placed and a dental crown over the top. If a dental bridge is intended, the restoration is made and then the implant is used for support of one or both sides of the bridge. In the case of dentures, the doctor will place several implants along the dental arch and then have a full denture made to snap over the implants for optimum stability.
Patients who are interested in mini dental implants need to have a series of x-rays completed so the dentist can check to see if they are appropriate candidates. Most patients with insufficient bone for traditional dental implants may be perfect candidates for mini dental implants. Mini dental implants do not require as much bone as traditional implants. They can also be restored the same day in some instances, so this should be considered for patients seeking a permanent solution and an alternative to dentures and bridges. Dr. Loberg of Loberg Professional Dental Corporation encourages patients to book a consultation visit with his team to find out if mini dental implants can repair their smiles.
