In this post from Dental Designs of Owensboro the topic is mini dental implants, sometimes called “immediate implants.”
Like their larger-diameter counterparts, mini implants can support a restoration for one or more missing teeth or replace a bridge or fixed denture. Denture wearers benefit greatly from these slip-free dental implants that are anchored securely in the jaw bone.
In some cases, a patient is unable to receive full-size dental implants due to insufficient bone thickness. There are also mini implant patients who are not able to undergo dental implant surgery due to health issues. These patients are often excellent candidates for the mini version.
The placement of toothpick-size mini dental implants can sometimes be done in one dental visit. The placement usually requires no incisions or stitches. Recovery time, if required, is commonly very short. Most patients are able to eat dinner that evening.
