When replacing damaged or missing teeth a dentist will usually have three options available: dentures, dental implants or mini dental implants.
Dentures require special care and maintenance, and some people are not suitable candidates for dental implants for a number of reasons such as lack of jawbone density. This leaves mini implants, which have advantages and benefits including:
- Lack of bone density is not an issue
- Fitting and installing can be done quickly and easily
- More cost-effective than dentures
Mini dental implants are permanent fixtures and are a viable option for those who do not qualify for traditional implants or who do not wish to wear and take care of dentures.
