About Mini Dental Implants
The History of Mini Dental Implants
The invention of the mini dental implant has been quite an achievement for cosmetic dentistry. It has provided long term, prosthetic replacements for individuals who suffer with broken, missing or damaged teeth. Men and women did not always have the option for mini dental implants, until recently, permanent tooth replacement options were not ideal.
Dental implants have been in existence since the early 1970s. Dental experts were researching dentures as a viable option for the permanent replacement of missing teeth. For many years, patients have used dentures as a permanent replacement for missing teeth, but there have often been problems with this.
As dental technology advanced, the permanent dental implant was modified, and in 1999, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved mini dental implants as a safe and permanent option for tooth replacement. Patients with mini dental implants agree that this dental implant option is both safe and effective, and provides fantastic permanent results.
Thomas Overmeyer, DDS in Orlando, FL has been very honest in his opinion that it is not proper to make false and misleading promises to their patients. He states that, “none of the products and replacements used in dentistry are ‘permanent’ or last forever, but we can guarantee you a long term solution for tooth replacement with our advanced mini dental implantation surgery.”
For those who have had their teeth extracted or are planning to do so now, the only way to maintain good oral and dental health is to replace the extracted tooth. Over time, damage and deformity can strike the gums and jawbone if a tooth is not replaced.
Many individuals do not bother to replace their missing teeth with dentures or implants, delaying the process on purpose, because of the costs involved in mini dental implant surgery. However, the longer you wait once your teeth have been removed, the harder it will be to secure a prosthetic replacement in the gap.
Diligent research and advancements in technology have proven that mini dental implants are a safe and effective solution for long term replacement of missing teeth. If you are looking to perfect your smile, visit Thomas Overmeyer, DDS in Orlando, FL today.
