What are Dental Implants?

Your Tooth Implant Dentist In Fresno

mini dental implants Clovis and Madera and FresnoYou might have heard the term dental implants before, but unless you’ve had someone explain them to you, the question of “what are dental implants?” may still be looming in your mind. So, what are dental implants exactly?

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are metal alloy posts – most frequently a titanium alloy – that are placed in the jawbone. A tooth implant serves a number of purposes, including providing support to the jawbone where support has been lost as well as an anchoring device for dental devices such as dental crowns or implant supported dentures.

What are mini dental implants?

A mini dental implant is a lot as the name implies – a smaller version of a standard dental implant. These mini dental implants are particularly handy for tight spots where a normal dental implant may not fit, or for areas that may not have enough bone structure left for a regular dental implant.

Dr. Mirelez is a dental artist. Even if I thought my implant crown was fine, he would not accept it until he thought it was perfect. It’s difficult to match a front tooth, but he did it! We are so fortunate to live in a time when implant procedures are possible. I’m very thankful for Dr. Mirelez!! My teeth are BEAUTIFUL!!!

How does a tooth implant act to support the jawbone?

Teeth are immensely important because they not only provide a way for us to eat our food, they also provide support for the jawbone they are in. If a tooth is lost, the support around the tooth’s former location can weaken and deteriorate.

A tooth implant acts a lot like tooth roots do and works to provide support to the jawbone by filling in the gap left by a missing tooth. Dental implants for this purpose alone are a great dental technology that can help patients jaws stay healthier.

With dental implants you can replace missing teeth safely, effectively, and permanently. Our Fresno team is thrilled to help each and every patient with their dental implants needs and have the skill and expertise necessary to provide outstanding service, every time.

No matter how challenging or difficult your dental situation, we can help you. If your teeth have gotten to where they are an embarrassment, we’ll stop your dental misery and reverse years of deterioration.

  • Before my implant, I appeared to have a “snag tooth” appearance in my photographs. Now, my appearance has improved to how I looked before losing the teeth. Dr. Mirelez was very thorough in explaining the procedure. He makes it as simple as possible and is excellent at his craft. If you are considering Dr. Mirelez, I would tell you that he is an outstanding dentist that guides you through the process. My new teeth look super! As far as my smile goes, I Love it! It’s what I do most of the day my teeth were restored to “what used to be” which is great at my age— 64.

    Dr. Mirelez’s team is exceptional. Thank you Dr. Mirelez!!

  • I had an abscessed tooth that was an anchor for my bridge and it wasn’t fixable. I hate surprising pain, so I decided to get it fixed. My new teeth solid and look better than my old bridge. Dr. Mirelez told me exactly what to expect during the procedure. Implant dentistry sounds worse than it is. Just take one step at a time. It’s worth it! Dr. Mirelez was very gentle, concerned and very capable. He even checked on me at my home. My teeth look cared for and healthy. I always smile now! And I’m glad it was done! Unfortunately, I really enjoy eating again. I can chew without worries! Everyone in the office is so pleasant to deal with.

  • My front tooth fractured off at the gum line. We decided to do an implant to close the gap. I am glad we decided to do an implant. It took a while, but I do not regret it. Dr. Mirelez is a very good dentist and he has taken most of my fears away. My life is so much better now. I can smile and feel comfortable and I love it. If you are considering Dr. Mirelez’s implant dentistry, I would say, “do it, he is very good!” Dr. Mirelez is the best dentist I have ever gone to and I had a gone to a lot of them.

  • I had no teeth and it was hard to chew. I had a partial that flipped around in my mouth.I feel great about my new teeth, it’s like having my own teeth back. It’s nice not to have your teeth out to brush them. I can eat anything and even chew gum. The implant process may be long, but its well worth it. Dr. Mirelez and staff are great. My implant look and feel very natural I would recommend Implants to whoever is losing or have lost any teeth.
