Mini Dental Implants Can Improve Your Smile in Time for Your Wedding

Mini Dental ImplantsIf you have lost some of your teeth, mini dental implants are an excellent way to replace them.  This is a modern dental solution that is far superior to dentures or dental bridges.  If you are getting married or have another special event coming up, it is important for you to be able to smile with confidence knowing that your teeth are in place and secure.  We can give you that confidence well before you walk down the aisle or pose for the camera.

What Are Mini Dental Implants?

When replacing missing teeth, the only real way to do so permanently is through a surgical procedure, namely dental implants.  With dental implants, a small titanium post is inserted under your gums and secured to your jawbone.  Since the body treats titanium like it would natural matter, it will begin to deposit bone around the implant through the process of osseointegration.  This is what makes an implant as secure as a natural root would be.  This is the only procedure that replaces both your missing root system and your missing tooth for a complete solution that does not rely on any of your surrounding teeth.

Why Mini Dental Implants Are Better Than Dentures or a Bridge

If you replace your missing teeth with dentures, your jawbone is going to go through the process of resorption and over time, those dentures will become loose.  This can cause discomfort and it can also lead to awkward moments where your teeth suddenly slip out of place.  If you are getting married, the last thing you need is loose dentures.  On the other hand, a dental bridge is a fixed solution that will remain in place.  The challenge is that in order to have a bridge, two of your natural teeth need to be permanently altered so that dental crowns can fit around them.  This creates a challenge because those teeth will never be able to be exposed again.  They will always need a crown.  Implants are the only solution that can remain permanently in place and without negatively impacting your other teeth.

Why Mini Dental Implants Can Be Better Than Traditional Ones

While traditional implants are incredibly effective, they are not for everyone.  These implants tend to be narrow and long so you need to have enough bone density in your jaw to support them.  If you have lost your teeth a couple of years ago, you may not have this and need a bone graft before being able to have the procedure.  This extends the treatment time by months and also adds an additional expense.  If you are on a time crunch or on a budget, this is not a good solution.  Mini implants are shorter and wider.  They can offer you the same level of support and durability that a traditional one can but they do not require as much bone density.  This makes them an ideal solution for many people.  Additionally, the procedure can sometimes be completed faster, making them ideal if you are on a time crunch.

If you want to look and feel your very best on your wedding day, make sure that your teeth are intact and your smile is beautiful.  We can help you to do so by replacing your lost teeth with implants and giving you a smile makeover.
