Mini Dental Implants: The Future of Dentistry
What happens if you want to restore your smile with dental implants but don’t have the necessary jawbone density? Look no further than mini dental implants from Capstone Dental. Our skilled implant provider in Charlotte, NC, Dr. Steven Yang, can place these long-lasting implants without any supplemental treatments. Read on to discover how mini implants can conveniently transform your smile and life!
What Are Mini Dental Implants?
Mini dental implants are a type of dental implant designed for patients who have smaller gaps in their teeth or who may have limited jawbone density. These restorations are a great option for patients who may not qualify for traditional implant restorations. Mini implants are also a convenient and cost-effective alternative to single dental implants that can still offer the same life-changing results.
Benefits of Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants offer several advantages over traditional dental implants, including:
- Shorter Treatment Time: Dr. Yang can place mini dental implants in one visit to our Charlotte, NC office, whereas traditional dental implants may take several months and multiple appointments until you’re ready to enjoy your smile.
- Minimally Invasive Procedure: Mini dental implants are much smaller compared to traditional implants, making the procedure less invasive and uncomfortable.
- Cost-Effective: Mini dental implants are typically a more affordable option for patients, as they require fewer appointments to insert and materials to make.
- Maintains Jawbone Density: Mini dental implants can stabilize and support dentures, keeping your jawbone strong and durable enough to handle your day-to-day life.
- Versatility: Mini dental implants can be used to stabilize a variety of dental prosthetics, including dentures, bridges, and crowns.
