Dr. Frederick D. Thurston, a noted implant dentist with Thurston Comprehensive Dental Center, is pleased to announce that he is now accepting new patients without a referral with missing teeth in Haines City, FL, at his dental practice in Auburndale. Dr. Thurston often recommends that many of his patients receive mini dental implants, an alternative to traditional dental implants.

Although missing teeth can have a dramatic effect on a person’s self-esteem, it can have more than just aesthetic consequences. The mouth is designed to house a certain number of teeth, and when that number changes, the body compensates. For example, teeth can move and shift if there is excess space in the jaw bone due to missing teeth. Additionally, when the jaw bone is not stimulated by the roots of a tooth, it begins to degrade, which could eventually cause deformation of the jaw. To prevent these things from occurring, Haines City, FL, patients should replace their missing teeth as soon as possible.

Mini dental implants are one option for tooth replacement. Like their name suggests, mini implants are similar to traditional implants, but are simply smaller in form. They consist of a small titanium post and a socket to which a prosthesis can attach. The benefits of mini implants are numerous. Unlike traditional implants, which can take many months of preparation and appointments to complete, mini implants can be placed in less dense areas of the jaw and only require a single visit for installation.

To ensure that his patients receive the best care possible, Dr. Thurston utilizes the latest in Cone Beam 3D imaging technology. This allows him to improve his implant treatment planning, placement and overall success, which results in better treatment for patients.
