Mini Dental Implants are Now Available to Patients with Low Jaw Bone Density Seeking a Permanent Tooth Replacement from Dr. Corinne Scalzitti

Dr. Corinne Scalzitti now offers patients with missing teeth new opportunities to receive dental implants when they have limited jaw bone density through the placement of mini implants. Mini implants are essentially implant posts that are not as long as full posts, requiring less bone depth to drill into and attach while still providing strong rooting for dental crowns or fixed dentures.

Patients with limited bone density in the jaw and multiple missing teeth can now enjoy the ability to receive dental implants with Dr. Corinne Scalzitti’s use of mini implants. Traditional implants require a certain amount of density in the jaw bone in order to drill into and take proper hold. For patients that do not have enough density, bridges or removable dentures were the only options. Now mini implants feature shorter posts and therefore require less bone in order to be placed. Additionally, mini implant surgery can be completed in as little as two hours, requiring only a local anesthetic.

For people that have lost teeth due to gum disease, trauma or other reasons, the option to have the most natural-looking and performing prosthetic is a welcomed opportunity. Dr. Scalzitti understands the desire patients have to replace a mouth full of missing teeth with the most comfortable and longest lasting solution possible. Dental implants, including mini implants, provide superior performance by stimulating the bone and preventing resorption or the eventual eroding away of the bone. If teeth are missing and implants are not placed, the bone will resorb back into the body and could lead to jaw misalignment, speech impairments, a misshapen jaw and more.

The process of placing mini implants is far less invasive than that for full, traditional dental implants. It requires only a local, not general, anesthetic and can be completed in one office visit typically lasting between one and two hours. There is less trauma and impact on the surrounding tissues, which makes the recovery period far less painful and far shorter than with full implants. Mini implants make the replacement of missing teeth easier than ever before. Additionally, the cost of mini implants is typically far less than for full dental implants.
