O’Fallon Mini Dental Implant Dentist Reviews How Mini Dental Implants Can Restore Your Smile

Written by Dr. Brace on Feb 11, 2014

If you lose a tooth, it is very important that you are able to restore your smile with professional dental options. Our O’Fallon dental implant dentist office provides a number of restorative treatments from which you can choose. Standard dental implants, dentures, and mini dental implants can all help patients transform their smiles after the devastation of tooth loss.

Today we are talking about one of these options in greater detail—the mini dental implant. Read on to learn more about how mini dental implants can help you reclaim a stellar smile.

Both conventional dental implants and mini dental implants are embedded into the patient’s jawbone. As you can imagine, this makes it very easy to speak, eat, and care for dental implants—you can basically treat them like natural teeth!

So, for example, if you lose a tooth that is particularly small, or sat in a small space along your gum line, you may benefit from a mini dental implant. The mini dental implant root is much thinner than the standard implant root, and thus can squeeze into tight spaces in your mouth. Once the mini dental implant is inserted, it will be capped with a dental restoration (which resembles a real tooth).

Another option is to use mini dental implants, with modified dental crowns, to hold dentures in place. Our dental team can retrofit your dentures to fit into the mini dental implant cap. Your dentures will then snap into place over the mini implant, and your dentures will be held firmly in place. It only takes a few mini dental implants to keep a denture in place.

Our O’Fallon mini dental implant dentist will be able to help you decide whether mini dental implants are right for you. Just give us a call to get started restoring your smile!
