This used to be way out of most peoples reach, as treatment was expensive. However, thanks to a revolution in dental technology using computers, lasers and healing techniques, the process has become much easier to do.
Once you have chosen the treatment, your details and x-rays of your jaw can be fed directly into a computer in order to get a precise location for the implant. Laser surgery does very little damage to the gums and jaw when forming the hole and then the implant can be screwed in almost immediately.
You will be fitted with a dummy crown at first, until the healing is complete before your new crown is fitted. The new fitting is as strong as the original tooth and more resistant to infection from bacteria.
The mini implant is also proving itself as a good treatment for denture sufferers, who are trying stabilise their dentures. After dental implant treatment dentures can click firmly into place on 5 or 6 implants.
Like most procedures these days, this treatment can be included in your insurance policy in order to get the treatment done as quickly as possible, or you can set up a payment plan.
