Lewis Center, OH (PRWEB) June 09, 2015
Robert Heller, DDS is pleased to announce the availability of mini dental implants in Lewis Center and Columbus, OH without a referral. Like traditional implants, this permanent alternative to dentures is designed for individuals who are tired of the issues caused by loose or ill-fitting dental plates. When a person has poor bone density or missing teeth in narrow areas, the success of other replacement options may be questionable, and mini implants may be the solution.
When a person is missing teeth, the jawbone beneath the empty sockets sustains damage due to the loss of the stimulation that was once provided by the roots. Dentures and bridges that rest on top of the gums are unable to fill this role, but dental implants are anchored with a post that effectively becomes the new root. This preserves bone density and helps to maintain good oral health, while restoring the confidence a person enjoys from secure, natural teeth.
Dr. Heller may recommend mini dental implants in Lewis Center and Columbus, OH for a number of reasons. Like regular implants, they secure replacement crowns or dental plates so that an individual no longer suffers from the discomfort and chafing of traditional dentures. The post of a mini implant is approximately half the size of the screw used for a regular implant, with a diameter similar to that of a toothpick. The post fits more easily in locations such as the front of the mouth where a typical implant post would not be narrow enough. A lower dental plate may be attached to a set of four implants, while an upper plate typically requires at least six to be secure.
The smaller size does not compromise the effectiveness of mini dental implants, for patients in Lewis Center and Columbus, OH, who are missing teeth. It does reduce the cost, as well as the time required for placement and recovery. Dr. Heller is usually able to complete the procedure in one office visit. Individuals who are interested in learning more about this procedure can now schedule a consultation at Oral Implants & Reconstructive Dentistry, Inc. without the need for a referral from a dental professional. More information is available on Dr. Heller’s website.
