What Is A Dental Implant?

Dental implants are another option used to replace missing teeth. A titanium cylinder acts as an artificial tooth root used to replace the root of a previously lost tooth. A metal post is surgically inserted in the gum and fuses to the bone, acting like the root of a tooth. It is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.

Dental implants are a standalone tooth replacement option, and do not utilize existing teeth. A dental implant can replace one or more teeth without affecting bordering teeth and can also support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture.

Dental implants provide replacement teeth that look natural and feel secure and stable. Implants look and feel like real teeth, and are permanently placed in the patient’s gum. Dental implants are an excellent option for tooth replacement.

Dental Implants can:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth
  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space
  • Restore a patient’s confident smile
  • Restore chewing, speech, and digestion
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues

Mini Dental Implants

Varinos Dental Associates is excited to now offer its patients the latest implant technology specifically designed for denture wearers.

Many denture wearers suffer a great deal of discomfort as a result of loose or ill-fitting dentures. Placement of Mini Dental Implants solves all the social and practical problems that make you unhappy with your dentures.

The MDI System consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball and the retaining fixture acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture at a predetermined level of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue. The implant fixtures allow for micro-mobility while withstanding natural lifting forces, and are most effective when used in the stabilization of a lower denture. You can finally experience relief from loose or ill-fitting dentures with Mini Dental Implants – the proven method that gives you immediate results!

With Mini Dental Implants, you can have a tight fitting, completely reliable system that allows you to speak and eat with comfort and confidence.

“From the first time I spoke to them I felt at ease. Everyone is great. They take the time to listen to your concerns and are very understanding. I was still quite nervous even with the knowledge that I would be sedated, but it was a truly great experience. I highly recommend you and your team to anyone who has any fear of the dentist. Thank you.”
