Implants & Mini Dental Implants
A dental implant is, in most cases, the optimum treatment to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed in the area of a missing tooth or teeth. A crown is then placed on the implant connection to restore your smile and chewing function. Implants are frequently used instead of bridges to maintain the integrity of the teeth on either side of the missing tooth/teeth. Dr. Treviño is trained to place implants, conveniently saving his patients’ time and resources.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants have been in dentistry for many years and have shown long-term and predictable success. MDIs are an alternative to using traditional implants when the area of treatment lacks the necessary bone dimensions. This can be quite common in areas where a tooth was removed several years prior. The use of MDIs are also an excellent, cost effective way to stabilize a lower denture that does not stay still when eating or talking. In a one hour visit, Dr. Treviño can transform your loose lower denture into one that will snap into place and keep you from ever needing denture adhesive again!
