What are Mini Dental Implants?
The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery in Pasadena, CA is proud to offer mini dental implants. At about half the diameter, mini implants, or teeth-in-an-hour, were designed to benefit patients whose jaw cannot support traditional implants. While many patients will need to undergo bone regeneration or obtain a bone graft to be candidates for traditional dental implants, this is not always an option. Mini implants are also a great option for a patient that needs to replace a small anterior tooth. The procedure for mini implants is less extensive and less invasive than traditional implant placement, which can require several months of healing time. Schedule a consultation with a member of our board-certified dental team to learn more about this innovative option for tooth replacement.
What to Expect with Mini Dental Implants
The mini dental implant procedure is performed in The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery office using local anesthesia. More sedation options are available upon request should you prefer a deeper state of relaxation. Using advanced diagnostic imaging, a member of our team will determine the best possible position for your implant placement before beginning the procedure. Next, using a precise, controlled, minimally invasive technique, your implants are placed into your jawbone. The heads of the implants will protrude from your gumline to provide a strong foundation for securing your restoration.
Any discomfort from the implant procedure will usually subside within 48 hours. Many patients are able to eat within a couple of hours following the procedure. Your restoration will feel very secure, and there will be no sutures to care for. Be careful to avoid very hard or sticky foods at first as these could cause discomfort. To care for your restorations, you should remove the denture, rinse your mouth with antiseptic mouthwash, and clean around the implant with a cotton swab and toothpaste for the first few days. Afterward, you can return to your standard dental hygiene routine as recommended by Dr. Elias.
Pacific Coast Center Reviews
I have always had problems with my teeth and finding an understanding dentist and orthodontist has always been a struggle. I needed a wisdom teeth surgery ( one broke in half and other 2 were growing super close to my nerves) the amazing staff at this location made everything so smooth. Starting from setting up appointments to very welcoming checking in and out, to the doctor and assistants that were very knowledgeable, explained in a language that anyone can understand easily and yet make informed choices. After the surgery they assisted my family member with my smooth pick up from their office. Overall, their customer service, professionalism and knowledge is what I call a 5star experience.
Staff is very quick, efficient, and are very friendly. Their office is very clean. I was able to schedule an appointment easily through the phone with no issues.
