A dental implant can be an involved process taking multiple appointments over a period of months. The mini-implant procedure is a much less involved process. The procedure itself can usually be completed in one simple dental appointment. In addition to saving time in the dental office, you will have far less discomfort following this procedure due to the minimally involved dental procedure (usually requiring less surgery or sutures). Plus, because mini-implants are so time efficient, the cost for this procedure is less than traditional implants.
Mini-dental implants have been used for many years to hold dentures in place, providing patients with the ability to eat, smile, and speak with comfort. Today, the use of non-surgical mini-dental implants has been expanded to replace a single tooth to a full mouth restoration. Thousands of implants have been placed with over a 95% success rate using this cost effective procedure.
The entire process consists of a consultation visit where Dr. Thomas will take a Panorex x-ray of your mouth and an impression. At your first treatment visit, Dr. Thomas will then place the mini-implant(s) and position the final restoration. A single tooth can be replaced in less time than doing a regular crown.
