Mini dental implants are a great alternative to regular dental implants, if the area you are looking to fill is smaller or more narrow than regular sized dental implants will allow.
If you have areas in your mouth that are too narrow for traditional dental implants, mini dental implants can be used.
How Do Mini Dental Implants Work?
Mini dental implants differ from traditional implants. For example:
- Mini dental implants are less expensive than traditional dental implants.
- Mini implants are considerably smaller than traditional implants.
- Mini implants can fit hard to reach or narrow areas when traditional implants can not.
- Mini implants can be used on smaller teeth and/or incisors.
Not all Salt Lake City dentists provide mini dental implants, but at The Sugar House Dentist we do! We believe mini implants are a great benefit to help replace teeth in smaller or more narrow spaces.
Similar to a traditional dental implant, a mini dental implants is an artificial titanium tooth root that is surgically anchored into your jaw bone. After the root is anchored and it fuses to your jawbone, the root can be used to anchor an artificial tooth. A mini dental implant provides you with a brand new, healthy artificial root and tooth.
Once the artificial root is infused, which may take several months, the root can be used to hold a dental crown, a dental bridge, or a denture. Mini dental implants are a great option for those with narrow or small missing teeth due to trauma, decay, or age.
