The Mini Dental Implant Process
In the following video, Brent Bradford, DDS, details the procedure for inserting a miniature dental implant and the various attachment options available.
When you come in as a new patient for your complimentary consultation, our first step is to have a detailed conversation about what you perceive your dental needs to be. Whether you’re missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or are entirely without teeth, we’ll discuss the appropriate procedures to restore your dental function.
Next, we perform a CBCT scan. This state-of-the-art imaging technology provides a three-dimensional view of your jawbone, enabling us to precisely plan the implant placement while avoiding critical structures.
With the information from the CBCT scan, we proceed by creating a small pilot hole in the designated location in the jawbone. The implant is then inserted snugly into this site. Depending on your specific situation, we may attach a temporary crown, bridge, or even fit your denture on the same day.
If you suspect you might benefit from an implant, whether due to a missing tooth or a troublesome denture, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’re here to assess your situation thoroughly during a free consultation and look forward to providing you with the best possible care.
