Mini Dental Implant Procedure Explained
Are you considering dental implants but have questions about the procedure and what is involved with dental implant treatment? Watch this video by experienced Butler implant dentist Dr. E. Ahono Gildersleeve as she describes the process for replacing missing teeth or securing loose dentures with mini dental implants.
The mini dental implant process is something that we do every day in our office. It’s a two step process. The first step, we make a small pilot hole through the gums to the underlying bone underneath. After that, we take the implant and we thread it through the pilot hole that we just made. When it’s done, it’s within the bone, and it looks just like this, so you see a little square and a ball on top.
Now, this can be done under local anesthetic with Novocaine, it can be done with nitrous oxide, or it can be done under conscious oral sedation. For example, if you had one front tooth replaced with a mini dental implant, how it would look would be exactly like this. You would have the gums, and then the implant would stick out of the gums from the bone, and then you would have a crown that would go over top, and it would look just like your natural teeth.
