At MDI Smile Center we have a solution for every unique situation. No matter where your smile & Oral Health is now, Dr. Rebecca El-Khoury and his team of dental specialists will fully restore your teeth to their optimal health, function & beauty.
Implants are the greatest choice for replacing a lost tooth, according to all dentists. The high-quality Implants used at MDI Smile Center have the same natural feel as teeth and will last a lifetime when properly cared for.
Patients despise dentures because they slide and need adhesive. They also have an impact on how you talk and eat. With implant-supported dentures, you can say goodbye to all of these problems! The dentures will perfectly snap into place right where the implant is placed. It is possible to stabilize them with as little as two implants per arch. Implant-supported dentures will feel and look just like your natural teeth!
Great-on-8 is the latest innovation in implant dentistry pioneered by Rebecca El-Khoury. With Mini Dental implants Dr. Rebecca El-Khoury places 8 implants per arch to ensure ultimate stabilization. Mini Implants are 5x better than traditional implants.
Most of the time, when a dentist or someone else mentions dental implants, they're referring to classic or conventional implant designs. When full-sized implants aren't acceptable, smaller, shorter mini implants provide various benefits and applications.
Here's everything you need to know about choosing between small and conventional implants:
Is it true that bigger is better?
Traditional implants are bigger than mini implants; they're around the same size as or slightly larger than natural tooth roots. A classic design is normally preferable as long as there is enough room and bone to put the implant into place.
Regrettably, this isn't always the case. Long periods of tooth loss may cause bone to shrink and teeth to move, making it difficult to put a conventional implant.
That’s where mini dental implants come in. Mini implants are roughly a third the size of regular implants, and they are leaner and shorter in general. Mini implants are simpler to place in regions where spacing or bone loss is an issue because of their smaller size.
The Required Number of Appointments
When it comes to the number of treatment visits, little implants have an advantage. Because mini implants are smaller, they may usually be implanted and repaired on the same day with just a local anesthetic.
Traditional implant therapy usually entails two or three treatments spread out over a few months or longer. Before the implant supports a fixed prosthesis, this extra period allows for bone integration and healing.
Every Smile Has a Solution
Traditional implants and mini implants both provide distinct options that meet the scenario at hand, depending on how many teeth you need to replace.
Traditional dentures, as well as bridges and crowns, may anchor a full arch prosthesis (such as a removable or permanent denture). They are a recommended option for complete treatment because of their stability.
Single tooth crowns or removable overdentures may also benefit from little dental implants.
