Missing teeth can affect your smile in many ways, altering the way it appears and functions as well as how you speak. In addition, tooth loss negatively impacts your oral health. At the DentaLink in Ballwin and St. Louis, Missouri, we offer many tooth replacement options for our patients who have suffered from tooth loss, including affordable mini dental implants.
Mini dental implants are a versatile tooth replacement option that function much like traditional dental implants but are smaller in size. The implant is a small piece of titanium that is placed in your jawbone using a minimally invasive procedure, rather than the more complex flap surgery that traditional implants require. After it is placed, it fuses with the jawbone to form a stable foundation that acts like a natural tooth root for your new tooth or teeth. While traditional implants typically require the implant to be fully healed before the new tooth is placed, mini implants can often have their new teeth placed on the same day that the mini implants are placed. We use high-quality, modern dental ceramics to create natural-looking replacement teeth that blend in with your smile so no one will ever know you have suffered from tooth loss. In addition to restoring the function, appearance, and health of your smile, mini dental implants can also restore your confidence!
Their smaller size offers multiple benefits and makes them a great alternative for patients who do not have enough healthy bone to support a full-sized implant or for whom a traditional implant is not the best choice for other reasons, such as budgetary issues or treatment preferences. With mini implants, patients can achieve the same stability and function that a traditional implant offers, but they:
While some types of mini implants can be less durable and long-lasting than a traditional implant, we use the advanced Shatkin F.I.R.S.T. mini implants, which are known for being the strongest mini implants in the world.
