A typical dental implant is a titanium post that looks like a tooth root. The implant is surgically positioned into the jawbone underneath the gum line. In order to qualify for dental implants, you must have healthy gums and sufficient bone to support the implant. For patients who are looking to replace their lost tooth, but do not want conventional restorations, mini dentals are the best option for them.
Mini implants have the structure similar to regular implants. However, they are slightly smaller in form. The procedure for mini implants can be completed quickly at a much lower cost. Further, the recovery or healing time is quite shorter because smaller incisions are required due to the smaller size of the implant device. Mini implants may be required in various circumstances by individuals with: gaps in areas of their mouth due to the failure of growth of adult teeth, broken teeth or teeth damaged beyond repair, etc.
After a successful implantation, mini dental implants require the same care as natural teeth. If you are considering going for this type of dental implant make certain to consult a professional and well-experienced dentist.
