What Are Mini Implants?

  1. 1. What Are Mini Implants? Dental Implants Philadelphia www.bydesigndental.com/dental-implants- philadelphia-pa/
  2. 2. What Are Mini Implants?  Mini implants, also known as mini dental implants or SDIs, are a relatively new innovation in the field of dentisty.  Sendax, DDS, the mini dental implant is a very small implant made of titanium alloy and measuring only 1.8 millimeters in diameter.
  3. 3.  The implants come in a variety of different lengths ranging from six to eighteen millimeters.  SDIs have been approved by the FDA as not only a safe temporary solution for lost or damaged teeth, but also as a long-term fix for these dental problems.
  4. 4. When Are Mini-implants Necessary?  When the bone structure of the jaw has become significantly weakened or eroded, mini-implants can provide much-needed support. In addition, mini-implants can be useful when replacing a single tooth or as supports for crowns and bridges.  Mini-implants can hold the dentures in place, eliminating discomfort and helping to keep food from becoming lodged beneath the dentures.
  5. 5. Difference Between Regular Implants and Mini-implants?  As implied by their name, the most obvious difference between regular implants and mini-implants is that mini-implants are much smaller. Don’t worry—bigger is not necessarily better, in this case. In fact, the smaller size of the mini-implants makes them much easier to insert, and often require a much shorter recovery time.
  6. 6. Procedure for Inserting Mini- Implants?  The procedure for inserting mini-implants is relatively simple and less invasive than the procedure required for standard implants. First, local anesthetic is administered so that the patient does not experience any pain. The dentist then makes a small hole in the gum to insert the implant. The implant is then placed into the ideal position to become an anchor for crowns, bridges, or dentures. Since the gum often does not have to be cut to make room for the smaller size implant, no stitches are required. The entire procedure can be completed during a single office visit in as little as half an hour
