What techniques are used for placing mini dental implants for Lakewood residents?
Dr. Scott Stewart and the team of South Lakewood Dental encourage patients to take the time to learn about restorative techniques available in our practice. Our team works closely with men and women to help them find ways of repairing their smiles after situations such as tooth loss occur. While there are many methods available, most patients will find the most desirable option to be mini dental implants.
Mini dental implants are made of titanium and are smaller than traditional implants. They are better suited for patients who are using them for denture retention, or for those with insufficient bone structure for standard implants. The placement is faster and they may be restored sooner than conventional implants.
The techniques necessary for placing mini dental implants is the same as traditional implants, though they are not as large. This allows them to be placed and restored sooner. Dr. Scott Stewart of South Lakewood Dental may ask patients to consider mini dental implants when they are appropriate. Placement of dental implants requires oral surgery, so patients should speak to their dentist about what to expect before, during, and after the procedure and discuss ways of maintaining their dental implants over time to ensure longevity. With proper care, patients can expect their implants to last a lifetime. Of course, patients must be proactive about their dental care to make sure they do not suffer from conditions such as periodontal disease or tooth decay, which can also affect the health of their smiles and can result in bone loss, thus resulting the loss of the dental implant.
