What are dental implants?
Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots (usually made out of titanium) that are designed to completely replace your natural tooth. To learn more about how they work and all of the different types of dental implants we offer visit our Peabody, MA dental office.
What are mini dental implant?
Mini dental implants are dental implants of a smaller diameter. These dental implants can be placed in certain areas of the upper and lower jaw where there is a reduced amount of bone. Because traditional dental implants require a larger amount of available bone tissue, mini dental implant are considered easier to place and a more likely option for patients who have experienced some deterioration.
Dr. John Argeros has studied with Dr. Victor Sendax, the founder of the mini dental implant system, and is a leading Peabody, MA implantologist. Dr. John Argeros and his dental team can provide a wide range of dental treatments using this amazing dental implant solution. However, as with any treatment, the proper diagnosis and planning is necessary before your mini dental implants can be placed — talk to Dr. John Argeros of Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology to find out if this option is right for you.
How can mini dental implants be used?
Oftentimes, mini dental implant are placed in the chin area to help retain a full lower denture. Recently, however, mini implants have become more widely used in both the upper and lower jaws. Mini dental implants usually require less invasive surgery and can be used in older individuals or patients who may otherwise be medically compromised. Mini dental implant are FDA-approved for a wide range of dental implant treatments and may be the answer for certain patients seeking dental implant solutions to their dental problems.
What are the downsides to mini dental implants?
While mini dental implant can be used in a variety of situations, they do have one major downside — they simply aren’t as strong or long-lasting as traditional dental implants. Because they require less support, their lifespan is shorter and they do not offer as much chewing power. For some people, this may not be a problem — in fact, mini dental implant may be the only answer for some people — but it may not be ideal for others. The only way to know for sure is to speak to either Dr. John Argeros or Dr. Donald Plourde during a consultation.
