If you’ve lost one or more teeth, that doesn’t mean you can’t smile confidently again. Dental implants are a restorative treatment and permanent way to replace your missing teeth, whether it’s just one or a full arch.
Dental implants are small screws typically made of titanium and used as a replacement for a missing tooth root. They are placed right into the jawbone and will eventually fuse with it to create a steady foundation. An artificial tooth, or crown, is placed on top of the implant.
Mini implants are just like regular implants, but smaller. Plus, the healing process is even faster. They are a great option for those who don’t want invasive surgery. They are also an alternative option for patients who don’t have enough bone mass in their jaws.
Dental implants are meant to be as close to your original teeth as possible. That means you should be brushing and flossing the same way. If you continue to maintain great dental hygiene and continue with regular checkups, your implants can last for decades – a lifetime even!
