Mini Dental Implants
Mini Dental Implants have been used for decades to replace missing teeth and and for Denture Stabilization.
According to Dr.Devi, the most important aspects in dental implant treatment planning are:
- Evaluation of patients medical history
- Presence of adequate foundation bone
- How many teeth are missing, Is soft tissue missing as well
- Does patient need facial support with restoration
- What kind of restoration is the most appropriate, conservative and affordable for the situation presented
- Can MINI DENTAL IMPLANTS be used
Finding the right treatment for every patient requires careful evaluation of multiple factors as every patient’s mouth condition is very unique. It is definitely not about filling the hole with an implant restoration. CAT scans are frequently used to study the quantity and quality of bone and this will help in figuring out he the type and number of implants needed in a particular situation. In some instances the foundation needs to be built first before we can place an implant. The implant restoration which could be a IMPLANT SUPPORTED CROWN or a HYBRID DENTURE or simply a IMPLANT RETAINED DENTURE has to be carefully designed so that it can provide good chewing ability, support for the face and ultimately good long term durability and prognosis. In some scenarios MINI DENTAL IMPLANTS can be used saving patients time and money. In general surgical aspect of IMPLANT DENTISTRY is a very gentle procedure with very little pain or post operative discomfort. It is normally done under local anesthesia.
