If you are missing teeth in your smile, you should really think about your options for replacing them. A full smile allows you to eat and speak the way you should and will help you look your best. Dental implants are terrific solution for filling out your smile.

While dental implants are very effective tooth replacements, oral surgery is required to place them, and not everyone is comfortable with the amount of surgery necessary. If that is the case for you, talk to our dentist, Dr. James Hardy about mini implants. Mini implants are just as sturdy easy to care for as regular implants, and easily as your natural teeth, however, they are smaller than regular implants.

While the process of placing regular implants can take several months since your gums and haws need to heal after the surgery, in many cases, mini implants can be placed in a single day. In the case of regular implants, a gum or bone graft may be necessary to replace missing tissue to create a good foundation. If you have lost gum tissue or mass in your jaw bone, mini implants can often be placed without a grafting procedure. Mini implants can be used to replace any teeth would be replaced by traditional implants and can also be used to hold lower dentures in place.
