People in Birmingham, AL are not immune from broken and missing teeth or other dental problems. In fact, millions of Americans are missing teeth and only a small fraction of them have had tooth replacement that is comfortable and acceptable for them.  Not unlike the rest of the country, many people in Birmingham, AL are afraid of dentists and end up putting off regular check ups and neglect oral hygiene. The result is gum disease and tooth decay that often leads to tooth loss. Looking back, most people often wish that they took better care of their teeth when they were young.  Healthy teeth are a precious possession and a great smile is a luxury.  If missing teeth are not replaced immediately it can lead to shifting of other teeth, problems with the bite, bone loss, and even jaw pain. People in Birmingham, AL can now replace their missing teeth or fix uncomfortable dentures with new mini dental implants

What Are Mini Dental Implants?

Mini dental implants can be used to replace teeth with a cemented crown but are also commonly used for stabilizing existing dentures.  If you are currently a denture wearer in Birmingham, AL there is a good chance that you are not happy with the way your full dentures fit. By using these mini dental implants to stabilize your dentures you will no longer need to worry about your dentures coming loose when you eat the foods you enjoy at your favorite Birmingham, AL restaurant. 

The mini dental implant process is very simple and can be easily completed in our Birmingham dental office.  After a small amount of dental anesthesia is placed, a mini dental implant is secured to the jaw bone by placing a pinhole in the bone and inserting the dental implant gently by hand. Next, your denture is fitted with a snap that attached to the implants and gives your dentures security.  Alternatively patients in Birmingham, AL may benefit from cementing a porcelain tooth securely to the dental implant that is not removed and functions like a natural tooth or teeth.  After the mini dental implant solution, there is no need for denture adhesives and you can still remove your dentures for hygiene. In fact, you should brush your implants just like teeth.
