Mini Implant Timing

November 15, 2022


When is the best time to get dental implants if you’ve lost a tooth? The answer is.. as soon as possible.

Mini dental implants help support your oral health by protecting you from the risk of losing additional teeth around your missing teeth. If you’ve lost one or more teeth, you might want to consider minimally invasive dental implants since they’re an excellent and easy restorative treatment that will allow you to chew, speak and smile normally with confidence.

One of the most worrisome issues surrounding missing teeth is bone loss in the jaw. Without a tooth root to stimulate the bone, the jawbone can become less dense in the place where your tooth once was. The longer you wait to get your dental implant, the more bone loss you could suffer.

By getting a mini dental implant, you can replace the missing tooth root structure. The bone in your jaw will be stimulated to bond with the titanium implant peg, creating a strong, stable base for your implant while helping to curtail bone loss.

Finding the Right Implant Dentist. The skill and experience of your implant dentist is a huge factor in the success of your procedure. It is very important to find a dentist that you feel totally comfortable trusting with your implants.

Some key signs of a quality implant dentist include:

  • Specific training and experience in the latest dental implants practices
  • Large number of satisfied implant patients
  • Willingness to work with your financial situation
  • Comfort level you have from attending a one-to-one consultation with the dentist
