The Mini Dental Implant Procedure
During your initial consultation, our dentist in Gulfport, MS, will evaluate your oral health and discuss your tooth replacement needs. They will determine if you are a suitable candidate for mini dental implants. Once you decide on mini dental implants, our dentist will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
On the day of the procedure, the implant is gently inserted into the jawbone through a minimally invasive process. The implant may have a ball-shaped end that protrudes above the gumline.
Over the next few months, the mini dental implant integrates with the jawbone through osseointegration. During this time, a temporary restoration may be placed to maintain aesthetics and function. Once the implant has fully integrated, a custom-made dental restoration (crown, bridge, or denture) is attached to the implant, completing the process and giving you a fully functional and aesthetically pleasing smile.
Mini dental implants are significantly impacting dental restoration, offering a versatile, minimally invasive, and affordable solution for individuals seeking to restore their smiles.
