A dentist will often suggest a dental implant as a remedy for broken or missing teeth but, in certain cases, there is the option of using mini dental implants. As with full implants, the dentist will need to ascertain there is sufficient bone density in the jaw to support the implant. Once this has been confirmed mini implants offer several advantages over the full version:
- Less invasive surgery required
- More suitable for smaller teeth
Because mini implants do not require a screw drilled down into your jaw, healing is much faster than with full implants and you can find out more at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/what-exactly-are-mini-dental-implants/
