Mini Dental Implants in Zanesville Make a Big Impact on Your Smile

While bigger is usually better, that’s not always the case with dental implants. Full-size implants simply aren’t a realistic choice for everyone. Dr. Charles Hawkins may not be able to place them if your jaw isn’t strong enough to support them, or if your age or certain health conditions will slow the healing process.

The good news is, you may still be able to receive mini dental implants in Zanesville. Because they are about half the size of full-size implants, Dr. Hawkins can often use them for situations where larger dental implants aren’t an option.

Our mini teeth implants can save you:

  • Time – Dr. Hawkins can replace a single tooth in about 30 minutes or multiple teeth in about an hour.
  • Money – Because placement is quicker and less complicated, mini dental implants typically cost less than full-size implants.
  • Discomfort – Dr. Hawkins doesn’t need to use a scalpel or sutures, and most patients require only local anesthesia. You’ll heal quickly and comfortably!
  • Embarrassment – Because you can usually get your replacement teeth on the same day you get your mini dental implants, your smile will be complete right away!

Gain Big Benefits From Mini Implants

Mini dental implants offer the same benefits as their full-size counterparts:

  • They can be used with different restorations, including a dental crown, a dental bridge, or dentures.
  • They stimulate your jawbone much like tooth roots, which helps keep your jaw strong.
  • They give you a smile that feels, looks, and functions a lot like your own.
  • They eliminate dentures that slip, adhesive to keep teeth in place, special cleaning routines, and other hassles.

But their smaller size offers benefits you simply won’t experience with full-size dental implants. With full-size implants, you typically must wait for your jawbone to heal around the implants before receiving your dental restoration. That process can take a few months. In contrast, you can usually receive both your mini dental implants and your restoration in a single visit to our office. In one nonsurgical procedure, we can give you back your smile and renewed bite.

Thanks to his training from the Midwest Implant Institute and Misch International Implant Institute, as well as his fellowship status with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Hawkins can help you determine which type of dental implant will work best for your particular situation. He will get the process started by taking digital X-rays that he’ll use to create a treatment plan. Hawkins Complete Dental Service also takes tooth impressions to create your new custom teeth.

Though local anesthesia keeps most patients pain-free throughout the short placement procedure for mini dental implants, you can get dental sedation if you need it. In addition, our caring staff will ensure your comfort with amenities like relaxing massage chairs and cozy blankets.

Common Questions About Mini Dental Implants

What is a mini dental implant?

As the name implies, a mini dental implant is a smaller version of a dental implant. As with traditional dental implants, a post is surgically embedded into your jaw to act as a foundation for the dental restoration that will replace your tooth. The principle difference between mini dental implants and traditional dental implants is that a smaller titanium post is used (about half the size of the titanium post used for traditional dental implants), which requires a less invasive procedure.

What are some advantages of mini dental implants?

Mini dental implants are smaller, tend to be a less expensive option, and heal faster than traditional dental implants. They are an effective solution for tooth loss patients who can’t undergo a standard dental implant procedure due to loss of jawbone density and other oral health issues.

How are mini dental implants placed?

Mini dental implants are placed like other types of dental implants. The implant is surgically embedded into your jawbone, and then once the implant is healed, we use it to support your new crowns, bridge, or dentures. Sometimes we can attach replacement teeth the same day we place your implants. We offer sedation dentistry, including oral sedation and IV sedation, so you won’t experience any discomfort during your procedure.
