Bone Loss & Mini Dental Implants
In this video, Dr. John Coolican, an experienced Wilkes-Barre implant dentist, explains how mini dental implants can be placed in those with bone loss and significantly slow down the process of resorption.
Patients ask all the time, why am I losing bone? Even if you lose as little as one tooth or multiple teeth, your bone starts dissolving right away. If you’ve had all your teeth extracted, regardless if you have a denture, you will continue to lose bone needed to support that denture, and over time, that denture gets more unstable. Dental implants hold bone or decrease the rate of bone loss in the areas where they are replaced.
The incredible thing about mini dental implants is that they’re small enough to be placed often in all three stages of bone loss. If you’ve been turned down for conventional implants in the past, mini dental implants may be the best option for you. Contact me for your free consultation and I’ll show you what I can do for you.
