Mini dental implants can be an excellent alternative for patients who seek to restore a misplaced tooth without having to settle for traditional restorations. A lot of people choose to shun the invasive surgery needed for standard dental implants, while for others, they barely have enough bone mass in their jaws to secure them properly.
We can help restore misplaced teeth through the use of bridges, dental implants, or dentures. Dentures and bridges are artificial teeth that sit on the gum’s exterior, and they don’t promote jawbone growth.
On the other hand, Dental implants are attached to the jawbone to ensure that they are well secured. The surgical procedure to fix a titanium post into your jawbone is carried out by Dr. Pandya, and it takes about three to six months for the bone to fuse around the implant.
Immediately the implant has been inserted into your jawbone, we unmask the implant and append a small post to provide support for the dummy tooth.
One key reason why most patients choose dental implants over dentures is that dental implants don’t shift or slip compared to dentures that are prone to this, much to the discomfort of its wearer. However, to achieve the best results, you require reasonably healthy bone in your jaw to provide adequate support for the dentures or restorations.
