What are Dental Implants?

Many of our patients are interested in the most advanced and realistic replacement teeth, so they ask the question: What are dental implants? Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that are made of strong titanium alloy. Each tooth implant will benefit your jaw in the same way a real tooth root does–it will stimulate the jawbone and prevent it from deteriorating. Each tooth implant provides the perfect anchor for replacement teeth.

What are dental implants? They are small titanium rods that are placed beneath the gums, into the jawbone. Each tooth implant will fuse with the jawbone to give you the most lifelike tooth replacement solution. After your jawbone heals and each tooth implant is working properly, Dr. Wurtzel can restore your the implants with beautiful replacement teeth. Dental implants can be restored with crowns, dentures, and more. With dental implants, there are countless options. You and Dr. Wurtzel can decide what is best for you.

Mini Dental Implants

Now that we have addressed the question “What are dental implants?” We should discuss a variation of dental implants: Mini dental implants. Mini dental implants are made of the same strong material that traditional dental implants are, and serve all of the same functions, but they are smaller. Regular dental implants have a diameter of 3.75 mm, but mini dental implants fall somewhere between 1.8 mm and 3 mm. While traditional dental implants require several appointments for completion, mini dental implants only require a single appointment! With mini dental implants, you can experience a dramatic change in your health and appearance in just one day.

Traditional and mini dental implants can transform the way you look and the way you feel about yourself. Give us a call to schedule a consultation with Dr. Wurtzel today. He can help you determine which type of dental implants will be the most successful for you.
