Missing teeth can affect more than your appearance. They can lead to bone loss, gum disease, shifting teeth and misalignment with the jawbone. Thankfully, our dentist and team can work with you to prevent this from happening with natural-looking dental implants here at Durango Laser Dentistry.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are long-lasting restorations used to replace one or multiple teeth. These are placed into the jawbone with a small titanium screw to create a stable foundation to your restoration. They are also made to look and function like real teeth, so you do not have to worry about compromising the aesthetics of your smile.
The Step-By-Step Process
The first step of the dental implant process is the initial consultation. During this time, our dentist will assess your oral health with advanced technology to plan out your treatment. Dr. Mason Miner may also check to see if you need a bone graft prior to the implant placement to ensure your jawbone can support this restoration.
After you have completed the consultation process, we move forward with the implant placement, where we insert a tiny screw into the jawbone. Once this is done, you will enter a recovery period before returning back to our office for us to place a restoration on top of the implant post. This restoration may be a crown, bridge, or complete or partial denture, based on your needs.
Mini Implants for Denture Retention
Already wear dentures but want a more stable solution? If so, mini implants are a great option if you struggle with denture retention. These smaller implants are placed in the jawbone and are designed to help stabilize dentures, providing a more comfortable and secure fit. Unlike traditional implants, mini implants require less time for healing and can be placed in just one appointment, making them a convenient option for many patients. Additionally, mini implants are typically more affordable than traditional implants, making them an accessible option for those on a budget.
With a consultation at Durango Laser Dentistry, we can help you determine if mini implants are the right solution for you and provide the personalized care you need to achieve a comfortable, secure and beautiful smile.
