Strengthen Your Bite With Mini Implants

When you choose Implant Dentistry & Laser Periodontics for your implant procedure, you benefit from Dr. Crawford’s 25-plus years of experience. He works with patients from all walks of life who want his expertise to repair their smile. He never talks down to his patients or rushes through appointments. He takes time to help you understand what’s needed to restore your oral function.

During your implant consultation, he’ll get images of your mouth with digital X-rays and 3-D or 4-D scans. It helps him plan your procedure and ensure your smile is in good condition. You’ll need healthy gum tissue for successful implant placement. So, if he spots a need for periodontal care, he’ll provide treatment to restore your gum health.

You’ll discover that mini implants provide similar benefits to their full-sized counterparts. However, they offer additional perks because of their smaller diameter:

  • Easy Procedure – Placing mini implants is a quick procedure that should take only one appointment. The process is less invasive then receiving full-size implants, so local anesthesia is typically all that’s needed. But you can receive dental sedation, if needed.
  • Fast Healing – Because the placement of these implants is not as complicated, you can expect a quick recovery.
  • Natural Feel and Function – Your new teeth will be secured by these implants. As a result, they’ll function similar to natural teeth.
  • Less Expensive – This is one aspect many patients appreciate. Since the implants are smaller, your procedure typically costs less than other implant treatments.
