Valley Stream Dental Implants
Have you heard about mini implants? Today many people are getting mini dental implants instead of traditional dental implants. In fact, many people come to our dental practice, Contemporary Dental Implant Centre every day to get either mini or traditional implants. Our Valley Stream implant dentist is highly-experienced in working with both type of implants; when you look at traditional implants versus mini implants you see there are important differences.
At our dental practice we are very pleased to be able to have a staff filled with expert cosmetic and implant dentists. They are: Dr. Dale D. Goldshlag; Dr. Barry Hertzl Habib; Dr. Barry Moretzky; Dr. Jean Paul Miranda; Dr. Mine Turhan; Dr. Mishel Eshaghianpour; Dr. Peter Muntean; and Dr. Sidney Hiller. A dental implant is used to replace a missing tooth. The bottom portion of the implant is called the root, and the top portion will consist of either a porcelain crown or a denture. The root is made of a surgical grade titanium. Conventional dental implants are generally able to withstand greater chewing forces because of the fact that they are wider and make a more stable anchor for teeth or dentures. Traditional implants are used for attaching either single crowns or complete or partial dentures. Our Valley Stream implant dentist will use a mini implant in multiples to retain dentures or as an anchor point for an orthodontic treatment.
Our Valley Stream implant dentist will generally use regular dental implants to secure individual porcelain crowns. However, regular dental implants are more costly than mini dental implants. The procedure to use traditional dental implants takes several months, while mini dental implants can be inserted and used to secure a denture the very same day. Mini dental implants are a great benefit to denture wearers because they will make the dentures much more secure. This way patients are able to eat more foods and speak more clearly without any worry that the dentures will slip or loosen. Getting traditional dental implants means that you will need to have dental surgery, but their benefits a great. Mini dental implants do not need surgery; they are inserted by a simple procedure that entails putting a tiny hole in the patient’s jawbone, and then placing the mini implant into the hole. In summation, regular dental implants are generally more sturdy and able to be used for individual teeth. Mini dental implants are less costly, do not call for surgery, and work best with dentures.
