Mini Dental Implants Philadelphia, PA

Do you have missing teeth but not enough bone structure to support a traditional dental implant?

Dr. Drew Shulman offers mini dental implants to patients in his Philadelphia, PA, dental office. Mini dental implants are an option for patients who want to replace missing teeth but cannot receive conventional restorations. Traditional dental implants may seem invasive. Patients may not have the adequate amount of bone in their jaw to hold a dental implant.

Mini dental implants resemble regular dental implants, but they are slightly smaller in size. They consist of a titanium post with a ball on the end, and a socket with a rubber o-ring. The socket attaches the dental crown to the post.

Mini implants can help support dentures, dental bridges, and other restorative options for missing or lost teeth. Mini dental implants are best for stabilizing dentures or supporting small teeth in areas with limited space.

Benefits of Mini Dental Implants

Regular implants require several months or multiple appointments for treatment. However, Dr. shulman can insert mini implants in just one visit to our Philadelphia office by using local anesthesia. Mini implants do not require sutures, bone grafting, or sufficient bone to support the implant posts.

Mini dental implants offer:

  • More economical option to traditional tooth implants
  • Allow patients to speak and eat normally
  • Look and feel like natural teeth

Contact our Northeast Philadelphia dental implant center if you are a good candidate for mini dental implants. Our staff will be glad to help you find a solution that is right for you.

Mini Dental Implants Treatment

Dr. Shulman will review your dental implant options with you prior to treatment. He will take your oral health and budget into account, and the number of teeth that you need. The procedure is minimally-invasive. After your dentist inserts the mini dental implants, your gums will still be sensitive for a short period.

Be sure to use a soft-bristled toothbrush to brush your teeth. You can maintain your mini implants the same way you would natural teeth. Brush and floss normally, and schedule an appointment in Dr. Shulman’s office for regular checkups.

What Causes Advanced Tooth Loss?

Multiple issues, and often a combination of them, can lead to advanced tooth loss. Poor oral hygiene can allow teeth to become infected and eventually lost. In addition, untreated periodontal disease can allow the advanced stage, periodontitis, to develop.

Then, the connective tissues between our teeth and gums dissolve, leading to lost teeth and a loss of jawbone density. This can increase the rate of tooth loss. Regardless of the exact cause, not addressing the issue can lead to gaps in your mouth. It can also lead to an older appearance, difficulty speaking clearly, and trouble eating a variety of foods.

When multiple teeth become lost, the health of your smile (as well as your appearance) can suffer. To enjoy a healthy mouth, you need to receive a dental prosthetic. We have a number of options for replacing missing teeth, helping you find a lifelike solution to advanced tooth loss.
