Injury, illness, and gum disease are some of the ways that people can lose their teeth. Losing teeth can be a traumatic experience. It can also cause a person to develop low self-esteem. Fortunately, people have the option of getting mini implants.
What are Mini Dental Implants?
Mini dental implants are a lot like traditional dental implants. The only major difference is that mini implants are a lot smaller. Regular dental implants are about 3.4 to 5.4 mm wide. However, mini implants are about 1.8 to 3.3 mm in diameter.
The process of getting mini implants is a lot simpler than getting traditional dental implants. It can take several months to complete the process of dental implants. There are also some patients who cannot get traditional implants because they do not have sufficient jaw bone. Additionally, some people are not able to tolerate invasive surgery.
Mini implants can typically be installed in one appointment. They do not require sutures, and the dentist will use sutures. You will be able to use your new teeth the same day.
The Process of Placing Mini Implants
There are a few steps that are involved in taking mini implants. The first thing that your dentist will do is administer the anesthetic. After that, your dentist will drill a small hole in the jaw bone. The next step is to screw the implant into place. A ratchet will then be used to stabilize the implant.
The denture will be placed after the implant is placed. Your dentist may have to send the denture to the lab in order to ensure that the denture fits properly.
How to Care for Mini Implants
You care for your mini implants the same way that you care for your natural teeth. You will be able to preserve your mini-implants as long as you are brushing and flossing regularly. You will also need to see a dentist regularly.
