  • What Are Mini Dental Implants?

    Because mini dental implants are somewhat new in the field of dentistry, many patients are not familiar with what they are. When we recommend them as a treatment option, the majority of our patients ask, “What are mini dental implants?” A mini dental implant is only 2.5 millimeters in size, much smaller than traditional dentures. Even so, this procedure offers numerous benefits for patients who need to replace missing teeth and who may not be a good candidate for typical dental implants.

    A Fast, Non-Invasive Procedure

    With traditional dental implants, a dentist must cut into your gums and jaw to install the new artificial tooth roots. After that, you must wait several months before he or she can attach your new teeth to the rods of the tooth roots. This is necessary to allow your gums and jaw sufficient healing time. No waiting time is required with mini dental implants. In fact, you can go home with them the same day. Dr. Mashnouk of Cass Family Dental does not need to do any cutting or stitching to place them. If you have existing dentures, mini dental implants help to hold them in position.

    An Ideal Tooth Replacement Option for Patients in High-Risk Categories

    People who smoke, have a blood clotting disorder, have poorly managed diabetes, and those with a history of recent heart surgery are considered high-risk to receive traditional dental implants. This is due to possible complication from receiving general anesthesia or incisions. However, Dr. Mashnouk is happy to install mini dental implants for patients who fall into these categories. Because it is a quick outpatient procedure, the risk of complications is non-existent.

    Budgetary concerns are another reason that people may prefer mini dental implants to traditional ones. They also tend to be more comfortable than traditional dentures because of a firmer fit. If you are considering this procedure, we encourage you to contact the scheduling department at Cass Family Dental to request a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Mashnouk. This gives you the opportunity to have all of your questions answered so you know if this procedure is right for you.
