Lansing Mini Dental Implants
Mini Dental Implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and a solution where the implants provide excellent support, stability, and retention for your removable partial or complete dentures.
Dental implants are artificial roots (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by Lansing dentist Dr. Robert Erhard. The appliances attached to implants are very natural looking and give you back your smile!
Mini Dental Implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.
Reasons for Mini Dental implants:
Restore a patient’s confidence and smile.
Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
Restore or enhance facial tissues.
Support a denture, making it more secure and comfortable.
What are the Advantages of Mini Dental Implants?
Mini Dental Implants are the merger of contemporary dental restorations with a minimally invasive alternative for increased retention, aesthetics and function.
Since it is less invasive, you will experience far less discomfort.
Dr. Erhard will administer a local anesthetic so you're comfortable.
Immediate loading capability allows placement of the restoration on the same day, without 4-6 months healing.
Being cost effective makes them more affordable to patients.
Due to their miniature size, they can be used in areas of less bone volume which would otherwise prohibit the use of traditional implants.
Mini Dental Implants have been used for many years to hold dentures in place, providing patients with the ability to eat, smile and speak with comfort and confidence.
The entire process consists of a consultation visit with Dr. Erhard in his Lansing dental office, when Xrays and impressions are taken. Then, at one treatment visit the mini implants will be placed by Dr. Erhard and then he will position the final restoration. In just one visit to our Lansing dental office, you can walk out with a secure denture or partial without the long healing times and high costs associated with conventional implants. In some cases, the denture you already have might be significantly stabilized by implants.
Dr. Erhard will provide you with care instructions when your treatment is completed in our Lansing dental office. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new implant.
