Stratford Mini Implants
Mini Implants in Stratford
At Contemporary Dental Implant Centre our Stratford mini implants are designed to help patients have their missing teeth fixed, fast. We also offer traditional implants, which take a bit longer but are just as effective as mini implants. Implants are the best way to replace a missing tooth permanently. Missing teeth can be fixed with bridges and dentures, but actual implants are there for good. They’re strong, stable and sturdy, just like traditional implants.
Stratford mini implants are thinner than traditional implants and most patients experience less discomfort having them put in. Mini implants are threaded titanium screws used for long term applications. They allow the right jaw stabilization in order to place dentures and implants. Mini implants are more financially feasible for some patients, and minimally invasive. Some patients may have medical reasons that prevent them from getting full implants, making mini implants a natural choice. They can also be used to accommodate dentures, making them a versatile choice.
Traditional implants are strong titanium posts that are implanted directly into the jaw. They provide a stable anchor so that an artificial tooth can be placed over the implant site. Traditional implants take a couple months from implantation to healing process. The implant is first placed and then given a healing period of a couple months. After the healing process is over, in which the patient eats only soft foods, a crown is put over the implant site to protect it. The patient can then enjoy all foods that they did before the implant, and be confident in their new tooth. The benefits of traditional implants are that they never need a root canal or filling, and are stronger than the root of a natural tooth.
