Rejuvenate Your Smile
Have you lost a tooth (or several of them) due to injury or disease? Dental implants from Premier Orthodontics & Dental Specialists can rejuvenate your smile and oral health.
Mini Implants in Downers Grove & Elmhurst
A mini implant consists of a miniature-sized titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth. On the top of the implant sits a retaining fixture that snaps into a corresponding fixture on your denture.
The result is a more comfortable, stable denture that enables you to enjoy life without worrying about your teeth.
Differences Between Mini Implants & Ordinary-sized Implants
With a regular-sized dental implant, a certain amount of bone structure needs to be available to place it. With mini implants, less space is needed, which allows the use of a site that has less than adequate bone.
Placing mini implants is also often simpler and less time-intensive than placing full-sized implants. Full-sized implants generally require several months of healing before they can reliably support dental restorations, while mini implants can often support a denture right away.
The procedure for placing mini implants at Premier Orthodontics & Dental Specialists is usually simple and relatively pain-free, and the recovery time is often just a day or two. Modifications to the denture are made on the same day the implants are placed, so you can begin wearing it with your new implants right away.
