Mini dental implants replace teeth and secure dentures in Wichita, KS


Mini Dental Implants in Wichita area
At East Wichita Dentist in Wichita, KS, we understand how difficult it can be to determine the best tooth replacement option for your oral health, treatment preferences, and budget when you are facing tooth loss. That’s why Dr. David Koepsel offers a variety of tooth replacement options to suit a variety of needs and takes the time to talk with you about each choice so you can feel completely confident in your decision towards a more functional, terrific smile. Mini dental implants are a great choice for many patients who either need to replace individual teeth or are seeking a way to stabilize and secure their dentures.

What are mini dental implants?

Mini dental implants are a modern way of replacing teeth that enables patients to achieve many of the same terrific results as a traditional root-form dental implant, but with a smaller implant that requires less healing time and is more economical.

Mini dental implants work in a similar way as traditional implants: they are designed to function like a tooth root to provide security and stability for either an individual false tooth or to secure dentures in place to avoid issues with dentures slipping or falling out. The diameter of mini dental implants is about the same as a toothpick, whereas traditional implants are about the same dimensions as a screw. The smaller size has several benefits:
  • Less complex surgery – the procedure for placing mini implants only takes one visit that takes an hour or two, is performed with local anesthesia, and typically does not even require sutures
  • Reduced healing time – instead of waiting for months for the implant to heal, mini implants can often be topped with your false tooth or dentures on the same day as they are placed, and most discomfort from the procedure resolves within a few days
  • Less bone is necessary – because mini dental implants are smaller, patients who have insufficient bone for a traditional implant can still be good candidates for mini implants, and can avoid costly bone grafts to build up the bone
  • Long-lasting – like traditional implants, mini implants can last for your lifetime if you take proper care of your teeth

Mini dental implants are less expensive than the traditional implants, making them an attractive option for budget-minded patients, but it is important to understand that while they are still incredibly functional, they do not offer the same level of strength and stability as standard implants.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
