Why Should I Choose Mini Dental Implants?

In this video, Dr. John Coolican, an experienced Wilkes-Barre implant dentist, explains the life-changing benefits that come with mini dental implant technology.

Dental implant technology has gone through a transformation in the last 20 years. More specifically, one piece implants of various sizes have revolutionized tooth replacement. Prominent dental leaders such as Dr. Gordon Christensen have now advocated for this type of dental implant as at least equal and superior to the old style conventional implant. Why?

The one piece design allows for minimally invasive placement without cutting or stitches immediate same day tooth replacement and an established track record of dramatically lower peri-implantitis or more commonly known as bone infection of the dental implant site which leads to implant loss.

I have been mentored and placing these implants for 20 years from the leader and innovator in these surgical procedures, Dr. Todd Shatkin from Buffalo, New York, who has done more of these procedures than anyone else in the world. I started Mint Mini Dental Implants to address the needs of our people in this region. With 20 years of experience and almost 10,000 implants placed, I’m here to help you. I look forward to seeing you soon.
