Mini Implant Options
Mini dental implants, available here at Lifetime Teeth Today, are custom-made prosthetic devices that can be placed very fast and with minimal pain. Dr. Ronald Trevisani may use mini implants to secure wobbly dentures based on the needs and desires of the patient. These implants can be easily placed in locations where regular dental implants cannot be placed; however, mini implants are not as sturdy as full size implants, and are normally placed for partial dentures or small teeth. Also, mini implants are single pieces; once placed, these implants cannot be adjusted to correct the angle of the implant.
For normal restoration of missing teeth, we prefer to use larger implants; and the cost is the same. Full-sized dental implants are more effective in a majority of restorative procedures and are much stronger than their “mini” counterparts. Mini dental implants can only be used in certain cases. As always, you should consult with an experienced oral surgeon.
Dr. Trevisani is board-certified in oral and maxillofacial surgery. He will be happy to meet with you for an initial consultation to evaluate your needs and recommend the best treatment options.
