Traditional Dental Implants
A dental implant is the prosthetic replacement for a missing tooth. Natural teeth consist of the crown and the root. The crown is the visible section above the jawline and the root supports the crown and is below the gum line.
The root is the part of the tooth that is effectively replaced by an implant. Most implants are made of titanium which is a metal that is bio compatible, offers strength, durability, as well as being able to uniquely fuse directly to the bone. After a healing period, bone will bond with the titanium implant by creating a strong foundation to attach a crown.
Whether tooth loss has occurred through an accident, disease, or decay, dental implants are an excellent replacement option for most individuals. With dental implants you can eat most foods and these new teeth are strong and stable – they look and feel like your own natural teeth!

Mini Dental Implants (MDI)
Mini dental implants have revolutionized dentistry with the introduction of a minimally invasive procedure.
The greatest benefit of mini implants is that they stabilize the dentures while eating
Mini implants provide stabilization of dental appliances like dentures. The procedure is minimally invasive. Mini implants that support dentures are conservative, affordable and sensible for individuals who have difficulty wearing or keeping track of their dentures.
Mini implants are also indicated for individuals that have worn dentures for years and no longer have adequate bone to support traditional implants. Mini implant options are much more affordable that traditional implant treatment.
Mini implants can be placed within 1-2 hours. An individual can go home with their new dentures in place, and immediately enjoy eating and speaking.
