Placement of Mini Dental Implants
When you visit our office for mini dental implants, Dr. Walden will administer a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable during your appointment, though additional sedation dentistry options are available for patients who suffer from dental anxiety. Dr. Walden will then create a small hole in the jaw bone at each site where a mini dental implant will be placed. The titanium implants are screwed into the bone and tightened and your dentures are then marked to indicate where they come into contact with the mini dental implants. Holes will be drilled at these points, modifying your dentures to fit securely on your new implants. Dentures may be removed for cleaning or may be placed permanently, depending upon what you and Dr. Walden have decided.
Typically, mini dental implants cost less than traditional implants, can be performed in patients with low bone volume, and require less recovery time, making them an attractive option for anyone who has suffered tooth loss. To schedule your consultation
