Dental implants are a popular option for replacing teeth. They won’t work for everyone, though. Our Crown Point, IN dentists from Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC can’t place implants if you don’t have enough bone density in your jaw or if age or health issues will impair healing after the implant procedure. But can do mini dental implants for our patients.
But you may still be able to get dental implants. The mini dental implant provides many of the same benefits as full-sized implants, but they can be placed in situations where larger implants simply aren’t feasible.
Both Dr. Mark Van Buskirk and Dr. Michael Krischke can examine you during a free consultation and determine if you’re a candidate for either full-sized implants or mini dental implants. Call Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS, LLC at 219-641-3422.
You’ll Enjoy Big Advantages with Mini Dental Implants
You’ll enjoy many of the same advantages with mini dental implants that you get with their full-sized counterparts, including durability and preservation of the bone structure. Additional advantages include:
- You may not need additional procedures. If your jawbone is too thin, we sometimes suggest a bone graft to prepare your jaw for a dental implant. But mini dental implant can generally be placed without this added procedure.
- You’ll heal faster. After placing full-sized implants, we typically wait a few months for the area to heal before attaching replacement teeth. With mini dental implants, you can usually receive your replacement teeth much sooner than that. The area heals within days.
- They’re easier to place than full-sized implants. Placing mini dental implants is less complicated and less invasive than full-sized implants. You’ll probably need only local anesthesia.
