Mini Dental Implants in Dallas, TX
Mini dental implants are among the latest innovations in dentistry, providing an affordable, effective, and long-lasting solution for missing teeth. You can enjoy a full smile, improved confidence, and better long-term oral health with mini dental implants from Bent Tree Dental.
Versatile Options for Teeth Replacement
As many as 178 million Americans are missing one or more teeth, and around 40 million are missing all of their teeth. This makes tooth replacement one of the most sought-after dental treatments — and one that most people will need at some point in their life.
Mini dental implants provide an effective solution. They can support dental crowns to replace individual teeth, ensuring a solid foundation and lasting oral health. Multiple implants can support a full arch of teeth, alleviating the discomfort and instability that traditional dentures are known for.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you are likely a good candidate for mini dental implants. Schedule a free consultation with Rick Miller, DDS, at Bent Tree Dental to find out more about implants and other restoration options.
Mini Dental Implants vs. Traditional Implants
Traditional dental implants have quickly become a go-to choice for tooth replacement over the past few decades. However, mini dental implants are a newer approach that improves on traditional implants in many ways.
Most notably, mini dental implants are smaller than traditional implants — about half the size. They still rely on the jawbone as a foundation but require a less invasive procedure to place. Many patients who don’t have the jawbone density or size for larger dental implants can still have mini dental implants without the need for bone grafts.
Mini dental implants are a single piece consisting of a screwlike base that is placed in the jawbone and a top that supports an artificial tooth or teeth. They differ from traditional implants, which consist of a base and an additional piece called an abutment that is attached to the base.
With traditional dental implants, you’ll have to wait three months or longer for the implant site to heal before the abutment is placed. But the simpler design of mini dental implants makes it possible to have your replacement teeth attached at the time of implant placement. You can walk out of our office with a full smile on the day of your procedure!
The Benefits of Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants provide a wide range of benefits for individuals with missing teeth. First, you can enjoy a full smile once more and the confidence that comes with it. Whether you’re missing one, several, or all of your teeth, mini dental implants could be the choice for you.
Additionally, mini dental implants are smaller than traditional implants while still providing a solid foundation for replacement teeth. Your replacement teeth will be stable and capable of applying significant bite strength, making it easier to eat and speak normally.
Finally, the less invasive procedure required for mini dental implants provides for faster recovery. It also makes mini implants a significantly more affordable option than traditional implants in most cases.
Restore a Full Smile with Implant-Supported Dentures
Patients who are missing all of their teeth have long relied on dentures to restore their smiles. While better than living with no teeth, dentures cause several issues that implant-supported dentures can resolve.
After long-term use of traditional dentures, many patients undergo jawbone deterioration. Tooth roots provide natural stimulation to the jawbone, keeping it strong. Without that stimulation, the jawbone weakens and can eventually cause a sunken facial appearance.
Mini dental implants help prevent jawbone deterioration because they act similarly to tooth roots.
Additionally, implant-supported dentures have a solid foundation, so they don’t slip when you’re trying to eat or speak. The impact on your day-to-day life and self-confidence can be incredible. These tooth replacements are also easier to care for than traditional removable appliances.
Your Mini Dental Implant Treatment
Your mini dental implant treatment starts with a free consultation with Dr. Miller at Bent Tree Dental. We’ll evaluate your condition and discuss options for tooth replacement. If this is the right treatment option, we’ll prepare you for mini dental implants.
Mini dental implant placement is a minimally invasive procedure. In most cases, only a local anesthetic is required. However, other sedation options are available based on your individual needs.
Dr. Miller will carefully place the implants where they are needed. Once the implants are placed, your dental crown or implant-supported dentures can be attached. Recovery is generally brief, with little to no notable symptoms while healing.
Affordable Financing Options
Mini dental implants are already a more affordable alternative to traditional dental implants. They provide more accessible treatment for a broader range of patients. However, they can still be a major expense.
At Bent Tree Dental, we do everything we can to help our patients access the care they need. This includes working with lending partners to provide affordable financing solutions for our patients.
During your free initial consultation, we will discuss treatment costs and available financing options in detail. You can take advantage of convenient monthly payments and interest rates as low as 0%.
Bent Tree Dental works closely with patients to find solutions that work for their budget. These financing options can make getting the care you need possible. Receiving mini dental implants sooner rather than later can protect your jaw and any remaining teeth from further damage.
