Auburndale, FL (PRWEB) October 23, 2015
Patients who have lost teeth now have a less invasive tooth replacement option in Auburndale, FL. Dr. Frederick Thurston now offers mini dental implants at his practice. Mini dental implants have been shown to provide long-term results despite being less invasive than full implants. While dentures can only be attached to full implants after a lengthy placement and recovery process that may include bone grafting, mini implants allow for denture appliances to be fitted the same day.
Dental implants provide a solid and sturdy base for dentures, and Dr. Thurston is pleased to now offer mini dental implants to patients who need tooth replacement in Auburndale, FL. Mini implants are similar to their full-sized counterparts in that they are designed to take the place of missing teeth and stimulate the jaw bone just like the roots of real teeth. They are further similar in the materials they are constructed from, which typically include titanium and a calcium phosphate spray. However, the similarities end there, with full-size implants being much larger than mini implants and requiring more invasive surgery to place them in the jaw.
Mini implant placement is a good option for people who do not want to have invasive dental surgery, and for individuals who wear dentures and no longer want to worry about denture pastes and creams. Mini implants provide a stable attachment point for dentures, so that they do not slide around the mouth while the wearer speaks, eats and drinks. Mini implants are also typically more affordable than full implants, so they are ideal for patients who need implant placement but have budgetary restraints.
When teeth are lost, it is important to fill in the space with some type of tooth replacement that will stimulate bone growth. Mini dental implants continue to be an effective long-term solution for individuals who need tooth replacement in Auburndale, FL. Dr. Thurston is now qualified to place mini implants, and invites patients with dentures or missing teeth to schedule an appointment at his practice.
