Dentures, in one form or another, have been used for thousands of years to help people replace their missing teeth. Advances in dental technology and techniques have been able to further this cause, bringing about Dental Implants. They have been shown to be one of the most effective ways of replacing teeth, as well as one of the best ways to support a set of dentures. Many people, however, are not good candidates for dental implants, but could vastly benefit from them. This is why Dr. Ziyad Maali now offers mini dental implants in Orlando. Here are 6 common FAQs you need to know about them.

1. WHAT ARE MINI DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Mini dental implants are a smaller version of dental implants in Orlando. They involve small titanium being post-surgically implanted into your jaw to replace your tooth’s root. This new root will be part of a group of roots that will be used to support a set of dentures that simply fits onto them. Just like with regular dental implants, this root provides a firm base and can help reverse the gum and bone loss that is typical after tooth loss, ensuring your denture’s fit stays more consistent over time.

2. WHY WOULD I GET THEM INSTEAD OF REGULAR DENTAL IMPLANTS?

As mentioned before, it is very common for gums to recede and for your jaw to atrophy after tooth loss. This is because the body naturally starts to limit blood flow to the area. Patients who do not have enough healthy jaw to support normal implants have two options. They can either have a bone graft for their jaw, or they can simply get mini dental implants. Mini dental implants are easier for most patients because it saves them the step of getting a bone graft. Due to their smaller size, mini dental implants require less jawbone for support. This means they are a quicker way to help patients with extensive tissue loss than traditional dental implants.

3. WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE LIKE?

The procedure to get mini dental implants is just like that of regular implants, only much faster. Dr. Maali will surgically place the implants himself into your jaw, allow you time to heal, and then use these implants to support your dentures. Regular dental implants usually require about 3-6 months of healing time, but this is drastically shorter with mini dental implants because less tissue has to be disturbed. The surgery can typically be completed with only local anesthesia and in one visit.

4. CAN I USE THE DENTURES I’M ALREADY WEARING?

Yes, if the dentures are in relatively good shape, they can be modified to fit onto your implants.

5. WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF MINI IMPLANT SUPPORT DENTURES?

Denture Wearers Typically Live 10 Years Less due to a lack of nutrition. Their dentures can make it nearly impossible to eat essential foods like fibrous vegetables or proteins. Mini dental implant-supported dentures not only provide a more secure fit but also enable patients to have a bite force more comparable to natural teeth. This means they can eat the nutritious food they need, ensuring a long and healthy life.

6. ARE THEY RIGHT FOR ME?

If you are interested in getting dental implants or mini dental implants, first you need to Make An Appointment With Sand Lake Family Dental. This will give Dr. Maali the chance to examine your teeth and mouth and see if you are a good candidate for either procedure.
