Significantly stronger than bridges or dentures, a dental implant offers a single and permanent solution to a lost tooth. The implant is integrated into your jaw with a small titanium screw and over the course of several months naturally bonds with your mouth. This procedure is relatively simple and is effective in almost all cases, so there's no need to put off restoring that great smile.
All dental implants are not the same. Depending on how big the implant itself is, it will be classified as either a standard dental implant or a mini dental implant, which is sometimes also called a denture implant. A mini implant is smaller and thinner than a regular dental implant. In addition, mini tooth implants are also considerably more affordable.
The mini dental implant system consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of the replacement tooth, or denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball, and the retaining fixture acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture at a predetermined level of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue.
Placement of the mini dental implants is accomplished quickly and easily in a process performed in our office. The procedure generally takes around 1 to 2 hours. Using a precise, controlled, minimally invasive surgical technique, the implants are placed into the jawbone. The heads of the implants protrude from the gum tissue, providing a strong, solid foundation for securing the dentures. It is a one-step procedure that takes less time and heals faster than standard implants.

As you can see, the dental implant itself goes down into the bone, and the part that extends above the bone is what we place the crown on.
The use of dental implants is now the standard of care for missing teeth, denture replacement, and cosmetic dental care. They can be used for single tooth replacements, or multiple teeth replacements. In either case, the result is a dramatic improvement in your chewing ability, oral health, and smile.
Dental implants are very effective on the lower arch, where a removable partial denture might be considered. By using implants, a better bite is possible, as well as better stimulation to the bone.
Here is an example of how a lower implant case might look.
Finally, dental implants can be used to replace a full lower denture. By replacing dentures with implants, patients benefit from improved retention, chewing, esthetics and bone density.
Dental implants have definitely come of age. Success rates are approaching 100%, and dentists are replacing everything from single teeth to whole arches of missing teeth.
