Mini Dental Implants in Flushing, NY
Our goal at NY Smile Creators will also be to preserve your natural teeth. However, sometimes, total tooth loss is inevitable or unavoidable. In these cases, our highly skilled dentists, Dr. Rich Gochman and Dr. Teju Bharati, will provide restorative dentistry treatment so that you never have to go without a single missing tooth.
There are several options for replacing missing teeth available at our state-of-the-art Queens, NY, clinic. Of course, we provide dental implantology services and can position traditional dental implants, but we also offer mini dental implants, which are another great option for restoring both normal oral function and smile aesthetics.
Reasons for Tooth Loss
Our expert dental team is sensitive toward every patient’s unique needs, and we understand that retaining all of your natural teeth is not always possible. Tooth loss is a common condition that millions of Americans suffer from. There are a few reasons for tooth loss; these include:
- Accident, injury, or trauma
- Severe tooth decay
Beyond these, other oral health problems can lead to tooth loss, and so can systemic health issues in other parts of the body.
Mini Implants for Tooth Restoration
At a lower price point than traditional dental implants, mini implants yield stunning results in even less time from start to finish. The entire process for traditional dental implant positioning can take several months, whereas most mini implant patients walk out of our office with new teeth in just one appointment.
Of course, the mini implant is much smaller than their full-sized counterparts at about half the width, which makes them much easier to place into the jawbone by way of a pilot hole.
Just like regular dental implants, mini implants are strong enough to support bridgework and dental crowns as well as partials and dentures. They boast a staggeringly high success rate, and our patients with mini implants have said that they can finally feel good about smiling again.
Taking care of your mini implants is just as easy as your standard at-home oral care regimen. Brush and floss regularly, and make sure to visit us in Queens semi-annually for a dental exam and cleaning. Our team at NY Smile Creators is waiting for you.
