Update Your Smile

Mini implants in Jefferson Park are a new way to replace a missing tooth. With mini implants, the support post does not go as deep into your jaw as a traditional implant. The mini post may be an ideal solution if you have lost some of your jaw bone mass or do not have a lot of gum tissue in the area of the missing tooth or decayed tooth that needs to be replaced. If your tooth was extracted a few years or long time ago, the jaw bone may have receded. A traditional implant would require a bone graft. Not all people are candidates for a bone graft. Some people simply do not want the added expense and time that it takes for a bone graft followed by a traditional dental implant. In these cases, a mini implant is a good choice.

Mini implants do not look any different than a traditional dental implant. The titanium post is anchored into your jaw. Since the post is smaller, the healing time is shorter. Your body grows new bone cells around the titanium post, anchoring it in place. The artificial tooth crown is secured to the post with an abutment. The artificial tooth crown is made just for you out of resin and composite materials. It’s created to blend in with the rest of your natural teeth, resulting in a great smile.
