Better Smiles in Calgary & Surrounding Areas of Alberta with Mini Implants
Mini implants are a great option for most patients who want to replace one or more missing teeth. You should be in good general and oral health to be considered an ideal candidate for this procedure. If you have periodontal disease, you will have to treat it before placing the mini implants.
Compared to conventional dental implants, mini implants are much smaller in size and require less bone structure for placement. This makes them an ideal solution for many patients who lack sufficient jawbone for a full-sized dental implant. Mini implants also have a very short recovery time, thanks to their minimally invasive nature. This makes it a perfect alternative for patients who don’t want to go through the long healing period that comes with conventional implants.
However, there are certain issues that could make you ineligible for mini implants. They include a history of radiation treatments in the jaw, uncontrolled diabetes, and immune deficiency diseases.
Dr. Jennifer Silver, a Calgary dentist, has placed mini implants in many patients who have worn dentures for years and want a better fit for them. The use of mini implants to support dentures conserves more of your healthy bone structure and improves the stability of your dentures.
