A dental implant is a man-made tooth root. Dental implants are made in different shapes and sizes to correspond to the amount of available jawbone in each particular patient and each location within the same patients mouth. One size does not fit all everyplace.
A mini dental implant is a cylindrically shaped dental implant with a cross-sectional diameter of less than 3mm. They have been appproved for use in the United States of America for definitive replacement of teeth #’s 7, 10, 23, 24, 25 and 26. They also can be used quite successfully in other positions.
This is a picture of a MDL mini dental implant being inserted into the jawbone of a man in my Palm Harbor, Tampa area dentist office. The missing tooth is tooth # 25. The surgical placement and dental crown in this tooth # 25 position were completed in 2011. At the time of this posting, this gentleman has been comfortably functioning with this very health dental implant / dental crown for more than 6 months. With proper care, this comprehensive dental restoration may last a lifetime.
