If you have a missing tooth, it may make you feel self-conscious, but it can also have a negative effect on other teeth. Leaving a space from a missing tooth can lead to other teeth shifting.
At Bishop & Bishop Dental, we are happy to offer you options when it comes to replacing missing teeth including mini implants. Similar to traditional implants, mini implants involve creating a post, which is inserted into the jaw bone. The post supports a restoration, such as a crown or bridge.
A mini implant is smaller than a traditional implant and requires less recovery time. The treatment process is also quicker than a conventional implant. Since the implant is smaller than a traditional implant, it works best on incisors. Small teeth of the lower jaw may also be replaced using a mini implant.
Our experienced dentists will be happy to evaluate your situation and determine if you are a good candidate for a mini implant. Individuals who are not a candidate for a mini implant may still be able to replace a missing tooth with a conventional implant.
Our team at Bishop & Bishop Dental provide comprehensive dental services including endodontics, orthodontics, oral surgery and dental hygiene. We pride ourselves in providing exceptional customer service for your whole family.
