What are Mini Implants?

Are dentures not making you happy with your smile? Then find out if mini implants might be the better approach.

While some people are perfectly happy with their dentures there are others who find that they slip around too easy and make embarrassing noises when speaking. It can feel disheartening at first to realize that your new dental prosthetic isn’t exactly what you Dentureshad expected. Fortunately, our San Jose, CA dentists, Dr. Nidhi Sikka and Dr. Mona Chattha have the answers you’ve been looking for so you can finally get a smile you’ll feel comfortable with.

If you are tired of battling dentures, mini dental implants might be the best way to replace your missing teeth. Mini dental implants look and function just like regular implants, the only difference is that they are a bit smaller. These mini dental implants are typically made from titanium, a biocompatible metal that the mouth won’t reject.

The great pro of getting mini dental implants in San Jose is that they support any kind of replacement tooth or teeth you need, including dentures, bridges and crowns. Mini implants are actually an ideal way to secure your dentures and to prevent them from sliding around in your mouth.

Another reason some patients enjoy mini implants over traditional ones is that it can take several months to get traditional implants. Sometimes bone grafting surgery is even required prior to getting implant surgery in order to improve the jawbone, which supports the implant. If you don’t have enough bone density, aren’t right for invasive surgery or just don’t want to go through multiple dental appointments, then mini implants might be a better option. In fact, mini implants can usually be placed in just one visit with the use of local anesthesia and without even needing stitches.

And if that wasn’t reason enough to start talking to our implant dentist about whether getting mini dental implants is the right option for you, you can even use your new implants the same day you get them. And caring for them is no different than natural teeth. They are strong and durable, but require regular brushing and flossing to keep them healthy.

Are you ready to take the next step and find out if you are an ideal candidate for mini dental implants? Then it’s time you scheduled a consultation with our San Jose, CA restorative dentists, Dr. Sikka and Dr. Mona. Call Sikka Dental today to book your next visit.
