Using Implants And Mini-Implants To Help Restore Smiles
Posted August 3, 2018 by Wager-Evans Dental
Your Reno, NV dentist’s office can provide restorative dental care to address a wide range of oral health issues. While one person may come in to have a cavity removed, and a filling placed, another patient can come in seeking help with advanced tooth loss. To address the problem of missing teeth, your dentist can provide support with dental implants. Implants help to stabilize restorations – they can help with holding a single replacement tooth in position, and they can be used to keep dentures in place. Mini-implants are also available, and they can help to hold dentures, or to provide support for someone whose jawbone has suffered deterioration.
When you have dental implants in place to keep your restoration stable, you can count on a more comfortable experience with your prosthetic. Implants provide stability by acting as an artificial root for a replacement tooth. That stabilizing force can make it easier for you to bite and chew, and even more comfortable to speak! Having an implant in place can help you avoid the problem of jawbone resorption.
Mini-implants can be used to hold a set of lower dentures in place. Because they are smaller, mini-implants can also help those patients who have already suffered a loss of density in their jawbone over time. This can make the difference between moving forward with your smile restoration, and having to undergo a bone graft in order to ensure that your jaw is strong enough to safely receive your implants.
