Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) December 14, 2013
Dr. Peter Bassett, cosmetic dentist in Tempe, AZ, is now offering patients who currently rely on removable dentures a better alternative to a permanent smile with mini dental implants. Unlike traditional dental implants, mini dental implants don’t require surgery and months of healing to complete the restorative process.
Each day, millions of Americans struggle with loose or ill-fitting dentures, causing them to have troubles eating and speaking, and also causing pain. With mini dental implants, Dr. Bassett is able to provide a more permanent and hassle-free option for patients who have experienced tooth loss.
“Mini dental implants really have changed the face of dental implants as a whole,” said Dr. Peter Bassett, dental implants dentist in Tempe, AZ. “They are a great alternative for our patients who are hesitant about surgery but still want a permanent smile, and really, for any patient who is tired of the day-to-day hassle that traditional dentures present.”
Mini dental implants are much smaller than traditional implants, and as such, don’t require extensive surgery and bone grafting in order to complete the process. The mini dental implant anchors can be placed through a noninvasive treatment and are a much better alternative for patients who have experienced bone deterioration in their jaw.
Mini dental implants are most often used to permanently secure dentures and overdentures and are a much more affordable option than undergoing treatment for traditional implants. With mini dental implants, patients can enjoy a firmer fit, easier cleaning, clearer speech, and much more biting force. Best of all, there is no longer a need for messy adhesives, and in many cases, patients can receive the treatment in just one day.
At AZ Dental Specialty Group, Dr. Bassett works alongside Dr. Erik M. Unger, who specializes in periodontology. Together, they provide a wide variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures, including wisdom teeth extraction, 3i dental implants, gum grafting, bone grafting, regenerative procedures, TMJ disorder treatment, and much more.
Dr. Bassett completed his DMD degree at Tufts School of Dental Medicine and has been practicing dentistry for many years. After graduating dental school, Dr. Bassett also completed an oral surgery and maxillofacial surgery program at Boston University Hospital. Beyond his formal education, Dr. Bassett has been involved in extensive continuing education in dentistry to ensure that his patients receive the latest and best care at his practice. He is a member of the Arizona Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
