When are mini dental implants used?
Mini dental implants are used to replace missing teeth in patients with compromised bone tissue. Mini implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or to secure a dental bridge or denture. Mini implants are a product of recent advancements made in implant dentistry. Mini implants make it possible to replace teeth with implants in patients that were once unqualified for a traditional implant due to deterioration in the jaw bone.
Mini implants are much smaller than traditional implants and can be secured in less bone tissue. Plano, TX restorative dentist Dr. Sowell has advanced training in the planning, implantation, and success of mini implants.
