Baytown Mini Implants

Baytown mini implants share the same physical structure as standard dental implants, yet are approximately two millimeters smaller, making them a more conventional approach to implant restoration and an excellent option for patients lacking sufficiently supportive bone mass. These smaller implants come as two parts: a dental-grade titanium post with a ball on the end, and a socket with a rubber-like O-ring that connects the post to the restorative tooth. According to the Mini Dental Implant Centers of America (MDICA), mini implants can fully support dentures, bridges, and fixed crowns.

Typically, your dentist at ProDental can insert your state-of-the-art Baytown mini implants, with only a local anesthetic, and without the need for sutures, in just one visit. That means your new restored tooth can generally be functional the same day as your implant appointment, a benefit that standard implants may not offer in most cases. Maintenance for your new mini implants require the same attentive care as your natural teeth, including flossing and brushing with a recommended fluoride-powered toothpaste. Because your gums may still be sensitive after the implant procedure, it is recommended to use an extra soft toothbrush.

Losing your natural teeth can be embarrassingly daunting, affecting your confidence and the health and appearance of your smile. Let your dentist at ProDental in Baytown determine whether you are a candidate for Baytown mini implants.
