Questions About the Mini Dental Implant Procedure
If you are interested in receiving mini dental implants, you may have a lot of questions. The following are the most frequently asked questions regarding the mini dental implant procedure. Please keep reading to get your questions answered. When you are ready to meet with a lawyer, please call our office today to schedule your free consultation.
What Are Mini Dental Implants?
Mini dental implants are the leading solution for replacing missing teeth. Placing a mini dental implant involves attaching a small screw to the jawbone.
This part of the procedure should not be painful because the area is numbed, and your jawbone does not have pain receptors. Once the screw is implanted, a prosthetic tooth is placed. You can bite into an apple the same day you have a tooth replaced with a mini dental implant.
Am I a Good Candidate?
A great candidate for mini dental implants is someone who wants to replace one or more missing teeth but does not want to have a complex procedure or a bone graft. A great candidate is also looking to save money on their procedure and wants fast results.
You may want to consider alternative treatment options if you have diabetes, gum disease, a blood clotting disorder called hemophilia, or bone disease. If you can get your gum disease under control, you may be able to become a good candidate for the mini dental implant procedure.
What Are the Benefits of Mini Dental Implants?
Several differences between a traditional dental implant and a mini dental implant procedure highlight its benefits.
A dentist may have told you that you are either not a good candidate for a traditional dental implant, or you would need a bone graft in order for your jawbone to hold the screw. With mini dental implants, you do not have to have as much bone mass because the screw that is used is much smaller.
Compared to a traditional dental implant, mini dental implants are more affordable, which makes them better for your budget.
What is the Recovery for a Mini Dental Implant Procedure?
Recovering from a mini dental implant procedure usually does not take very long. You may want to avoid certain foods out of comfort, but your life won’t need to change all that much while you heal from the procedure.
Most patients are back to normal after a day or so. If you have any pain, it can typically be managed with OTC pain relievers as recommended by your dentist.
