Dental Implant Dentistry In Fresno
A dental implant is a special alloy post, usually made of titanium, which acts as an anchoring point for a dental crown or other dental apparatus. The dental implant is inserted into the jawbone carefully and safely by our team. After the jawbone has healed, a beautiful porcelain crown is attached, effectively creating a new tooth.
Some parts of the mouth are hard to get to, making it difficult to place a dental implant. Now, thanks to modern dental technology, there is an option for those harder-to-access areas. The technology is called mini dental implants.
Mini dental implants act a lot like their larger counterparts, except they are smaller and designed to fit into tighter spaces. These mini implants have been a wonderful solution to tight situations, and between standard size dental implants and mini dental implants, we can resolve more missing teeth situations than ever before.
Mini implants have another use besides just a place for anchoring a dental crown or dental device. They can also be used as a form of introduction to dental implants in general.
Some of the advantages of mini implants include:
- Smaller | Because they are smaller than standard dental implants, they can be placed in tighter spaces, or spaces that have less bone structure available.
- Support | As with a standard dental implant, a mini implant can help improve the support of your jawbone. When you lose teeth, you also lose some of the support necessary to keep your jaw happy and healthy. Dental implants and mini implants can help strengthen your jaw.
Our team loves using this wonderful dental technology to help patients who have lost teeth get their smiles back. We work hard to stay on top of the latest and greatest treatments so that our patients can benefit from our expertise.
