For those missing one or more natural teeth, implant dentistry can be a life-saver. This dental specialization involves the use of dental implants to replace a lost, missing or severely damaged tooth. Depending on the size of the natural tooth you are replacing, you might require standard implants or mini-implants.
Standard Dental Implants: Standard dental implants involve the implantation of an artificial tooth. These implants act as support restorations for missing teeth and can improve appearance, eliminate discomfort, boost self-esteem, improve oral hygiene, prevent jaw bone loss and improve speech.
Mini-Implants: A specialty in implant dentistry, mini-implants allow you to replace missing teeth in small and/or narrow spaces. Perfect for replacing small teeth such as incisors, mini-implants are increasingly common for their many benefits. For example, mini-implants don’t require bone grafting or flap surgery, and they are far less invasive and offer a shortened healing time when compared to standard implants.
The procedure needed for a dental implant sounds much worse than it is. With today’s equipment and technology, dental implants can be a simple outpatient procedure that requires minimal healing time. The first part of most dental implant procedures is to map the jaw and plan the exact location of the new tooth implant. Next, the periodontist will make a small incision and drill a small hole into the jaw bone at the insertion site. After space is allotted, the implant will be placed into the mouth where the root will then fuse with the bone over time creating a permanent tooth structure.
