When looking for a permanent tooth replacement, it is nice to have options. This is why The Oyster Bay Family Dentists choose to offer mini dental implants to our patients in the Oyster Bay, NY area who need alternative options for permanent tooth replacement.
Mini dental implants are about half the size of a full-sized dental
implant. This means several things. They fit into smaller places, they
are faster to install, and they can be used to stabilize dentures.
Because of their small size, mini implants are great for narrow
spaces where a full-sized implant would not fit. Their small size also
allows a faster installation and faster healing. While full-sized
implants need several months to heal before the permanent crown can be
attached, mini implants can often be completed in the same day. The
implant does not require an incision to place it, so healing time is
much shorter. This is great news for patients who cannot wait several
months for a permanent tooth replacement.
Mini implants also work as a more stable platform for dentures.
Dentures can be made to clip onto mini implants that are placed along
the gum line. Four to six implants are placed and the dentures clipped
right in for a tight and perfect fit.
are always great to have. To learn more about the mini implant option,
