Many of our patients come to our office concerned about whether they should get conventional implants or mini implants. At Jenson Dentistry, we provide both implant options because they both offer numerous benefits.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a permanent solution for a missing tooth. If you want to replace a missing tooth without damaging any teeth surrounding them, dental implants are by far the best method. Dental implants involve a surgical procedure to place a titanium screw into the jawbone. The titanium screw will then be used to support a permanent tooth. Dental implants look natural and are the perfect solution for people that want to restore their bite.
What are Conventional Implants?
Standard dental implants have an external screw that is surgically inserted into the jaw bone. Once the screw bonds with the jaw bone, we will attach the dental crown to the implant
What are Mini Implants?
MDIs are constructed out of titanium and have calcium phosphate sprayed over it along the length of the screw portion. The MDI is designed to provide long-lasting results that promotes quick healing. The head portion of the implant looks like a small ball that fits firmly into the retaining mechanism. The MDI sits comfortably on the gum tissue and can withstand a great deal of force and pressure.
