Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial teeth permanently fixed inside your mouth. Dr. Hamdan inserts a titanium post into your jaw, and the post fuses to your jawbone. After your mouth heals, Dr. Hamdan attaches a customized artificial tooth to the post, replacing your missing tooth.

Implants are a versatile dental procedure that can restore function lost because of missing teeth or poorly fitted dentures. Implants can replace just one lost tooth or can secure a bridge and replace many missing teeth.

Even one missing tooth can have a significant effect on your appearance and oral health. When your teeth shift, you can experience complications including crowding, tooth decay, and gum disease.

Implants are an effective, long-term replacement for missing teeth that can restore your teeth’s appearance and function. They look and feel just like natural, healthy teeth.


How are mini implants different than other dental implants?

Mini implants are an alternative to traditional dental implants. A smaller implant requires a less invasive procedure and shorter healing times. Mini implants can be a good option for patients who don’t have enough bone for conventional-style implants.

Mini dental implants are like standard implants, but the rod Dr. Hamdan uses as the artificial tooth root is smaller. Mini implants are a good option for patients with missing teeth in narrower locations or for patients who don’t have enough bone for traditional implants.

Because mini implants require less bone, they often don’t require bone grafting procedures. Dr. Hamdan typically uses local anesthesia or light sedation to keep you comfortable during your implant procedure, and he inserts your artificial teeth at your next appointment.

Mini implants can be an affordable option. They can replace missing teeth, help retain dentures, and give you a full, confident smile. Mini implants also give you the ability to achieve the benefits of traditional dental implants without long healing times.


Are mini dental implants right for me?

Dental implants are a good option for patients seeking natural-looking and durable artificial teeth. If you’re in generally good health, Dr. Hamdan talks with you about your options for dental implants.

You can expect him to perform a full oral exam to evaluate your mouth. He may recommend mini implants if you have:

  • A missing tooth or teeth
  • Ill-fitting dentures
  • A small jawbone

Mini implants can enhance your smile and they work with dentures, crowns, bridges, and more. Implants give your teeth a secure hold in your jawbone, and they make it easier to chew, talk, and laugh normally.

You don’t have to live with missing teeth or poorly fitted dentures. Mini dental implants are a popular, natural-looking option for missing teeth. To get started, call Dr. Hamdan at Urgent Family Dentistry for your first appointment, or book online.
