There are many options to replace missing teeth, whether you are missing one or multiple teeth. If you want a full, beautiful, and functional smile, dental implants are often the recommended route for resorting your smile.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a permanent solution to replacing missing teeth. First, we surgically place a post, which is the screw-like part you see in the video above. Then we secure the crown or synthetic tooth to the post.
What are Mini Implants?
Mini implants a very similar to traditional dental implants except for the fact that they are smaller, hence the name mini implants. Other than the size, mini implants are also more affordable than regular-sized implants, so they are a great choice for patients who have a smaller budget.
Moreover, mini implants are a better option for patients who have less bone in their mouth. This is because the implant is shorter and doesn't need as much bone to rest in than other implants.
Why Shouldn't I Get Mini Implants?
Mini implants are not right for everyone. Compared to traditional dental implants, they have higher failure rates. So, it is best to talk with your dentist about your options and which treatment is best for you.
