Mini Dental Implants in Plano, TX
If you have considered getting dental implants but are concerned about the cost, you may be an ideal candidate for mini dental implants.
1st In Smiles is your source for mini dental implants in Plano, TX. Our mini implants cost less than full-size implants, and our experienced periodontist works side by side with Dr. Barfield to ensure you get the most out of your mini implants.
Are Mini Implants for Me?
Mini implants, or small-diameter implants, are about half the size of traditional implants. Because they are smaller, the procedure is minimally invasive. This can make healing easier if your health is compromised or if your bone structure can’t support full-size traditional implants. The smaller size can decrease the minor soreness you may experience after the treatment, which usually goes away in just a couple of days.
Mini implants can also secure lower dentures, whether existing or new. Some folks get dentures to replace their missing teeth because their bone density can’t support implants, but this doesn’t rule out the smaller, less invasive mini implants. If your dentures are uncomfortable, embarrassing, and inconvenient, ask your Plano implant dentist if mini implants can permanently secure your dentures so that you can once again smile, laugh, talk, and eat as you please!
What Is the Procedure?
In order to place mini implants, our dental team creates a detailed treatment plan with you, incorporating our latest state-of-the art dental technology to give you the greatest implant success possible. Our intraoral camera can show us enlarged, detailed images of the inside of your mouth in real time, which not only helps us get an accurate picture of your mouth but also allows us to detect any disease or infection that we must treat before placing your implants. Our digital X-rays will help show us the condition and density of your bone structure in just minutes.
If you’re concerned about being in pain during the treatment, worry no more. 1st In Smiles has several types of sedation dentistry so that your mini implants won’t hurt at all. You can simply relax in our comfortable environment with little awareness of what’s going on until your new smile is in place!
Dr. Rick Barfield is a native of Richardson, Texas. He received his DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degree from the Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry and has been providing trusted dental care in the Plano, TX area for more than 30 years.
