Dental implants are a durable, long-lasting way to restore your smile. While traditional implants work great for many of our patients, we also offer mini dental implants in Shelby Township, Michigan, as an alternative. Visit our dentists, Drs. McKinley and Holloway, to learn more!
What is the between mini and traditional teeth implants?
As the name implies, mini dental implants are smaller than traditional implants. Most often they are used to secure dentures and an entire dental arch. Overall, a mini implant procedure takes less time and is less invasive than traditional procedure. Some patients are even able to receive their dentures the same day of the mini implant post, enjoying a beautiful smile right away. If you are looking for a more conservative, more affordable alternative to dental implants, come in to our office today!
What are the benefits of mini implants?
Like traditional implants, mini implants can provide a long-lasting restoration. When dentures are secured by this restoration, they look and feel like the patient’s own teeth. With implant-supported appliances, patients can eat and speak without fear of slippage. Also, because all implants are secured by a titanium post, they provide stimulation to the jawbone following the loss of a tooth. This prevents the bone from eroding or becoming reabsorbed and causing the cheeks and other facial features to collapse.
