Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants are a slightly different type of implant, as the actual implant is narrower and uses a screw instead of a post. Originally introduced during the 1980s, the FDA accepted mini dental implants as a suitable long-term implant solution in 1999.

The diameter of mini dental implants can range from as little as 1.8 mm, up to 2.9 mm. The implant screws range from 10 mm to 18 mm in length, and the length of the screw determines the strength of the implant rather than its diameter.

The design is different, too, as mini dental implants are often fabricated as a one-piece unit that integrates the abutment that protrudes above the gumline, instead of as a conventional two-piece dental implant where the post and the abutment are separate. The procedure to insert mini dental implants is slightly different as they are placed directly through the gum tissue, eliminating the need for stitches.

At our dental implant practice in Brooklyn use mini dental implants in specific situations and where traditional-sized dental implants aren’t suitable. Typically, they are used to replace small lower incisors or other teeth where there isn’t room for a traditional larger width implant. Mini dental implants are exceptionally useful for securing loose dentures and especially when a person has significant jawbone deterioration and who is unsuitable or who do not wish to have bone graft surgery to build up their jawbone.

Why Choose Mini Dental Implants?

Mini dental implants are ideal for anyone missing a lower front tooth or another tooth where the space is too narrow to fit a conventional dental implant without negatively affecting the adjacent teeth and avoiding essential structures like nerves and blood vessels. If your mini dental implant is being used to restore a small front tooth, you will be provided with a temporary tooth and eventually an implant crown once the front tooth implant has fully healed

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are used to fill a gap caused by missing teeth. A dental bridge is made up of two or more crowns placed on each side of the gap, with false teeth in between the anchor teeth. Dental bridges can be supported with dental implants or with natural teeth in the mouth.

Our expert dental team at LuxDen Dental Center in Brooklyn, NY can closely examine your teeth and gums to determine if you are a viable candidate for dental bridges.

Types of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are used to restore the function of teeth, enhance a smile, fix a bite, prevent other teeth from moving (where there are missing teeth in between crowns), and/or to maintain the shape of one’s face, to name a few reasons.

A traditional bridge is the most common type and is made of porcelain that is fused to ceramic or even metal. A resin-bonded bridge uses wings on each side of the bridge that are bonded to the existing teeth directly.

How Dental Bridges Work in Brooklyn

When you visit our Brooklyn dental office, the abutment teeth are prepared by our general dentist by recontouring them and removing a bit of enamel. This is so that a crown can be successfully placed. Impressions are made and then used by a dental lab to create this bridge for you. While this permanent bridge is being made, a temporary one is worn to protect the teeth.

Porcelain Dental Veneers

Veneers are deemed to be the most conservative treatment of unaesthetic anterior teeth. Since their introduction in 1983, they have been considered one of the most compelling treatment modalities for front teeth. Our world-class teeth veneer dentist Dr. Umanoff will help you select the most appropriate treatment solution for you. He is among a few dental veneer specialists in Brooklyn who can truly meet the patient’s aesthetic, structural, and biological requirements.

What Are Veneers?

One of the most frequently used procedures at LuxDen Dentistry Center is veneers. They can correct many dental problems and give you the beautiful smile of your dreams.

Veneers cover teeth that are stained from discolored resin fillings, exposure to excessive fluoride (fluorosis), antibiotics, especially tetracycline, or older root canal treatments. They can hide teeth that are small, oddly shaped, or that have become worn down.

Veneers are a popular way to rejuvenate your smile. There are several different types to choose from, and it is essential to know a little bit about each option.

The best-in-class veneer dentist in Brooklyn, Dr. Umanoff, can explain which choice will be the best for you and why.
