Enjoy Big Benefits with Mini Dental Implants in Florence, SC

Get the strong, functional smile you deserve with mini dental implants. Our Florence, SC dental practice is a member of the Mini Dental Implant Centers of America®, which means our staff uses state-of-the-art equipment and has received extensive training on mini dental implant placement. Mini dental implants allow you to enjoy most of the same advantages as full-size dental implants, such as durability and preservation of your jaw structure. They also:

  • Are less invasive than full-size implants. You can get a bone graft or other oral surgery procedure to prepare your jaw for a full-size dental implant if your jaw lacks bone density, but miniature implants don’t usually require any additional surgery.
  • Heal more quickly. After getting full-size implants, you must usually wait a few months for the area to heal before we can attach replacement teeth. With minis, we can usually load them with a dental crown, dental bridge, or dentures right away. You won’t have to come to our office as often for us to check on your progress, either.
  • Don’t take as long to place as full-size implants. The placement procedure is shorter and less complicated. You’ll probably only need local anesthesia, although we can give you dental sedation if you want it.
  • Are less expensive than full-size implants. In many cases, these smaller dental implants are about half as costly as their full-size counterparts.

Mini Dental Implants Make Tooth Replacement Possible

Dental implants are a popular tooth replacement option at our Florence, SC dental practice. But they won’t work for everyone. One of the requirements for implants is a strong jaw. It’s difficult for our dentist to place implants if your jaw lacks bone density or if age or health issues might slow healing after the dental implant procedure.

That doesn’t mean dental implants are an impossibility, though. Ask us if mini dental implants is the option for you. They are smaller, so they can be placed in areas where larger implants simply aren’t possible.

Come in soon. We’ll evaluate you and determine if dental implants – either full-size implants or miniature – will work well for you. For more information, call Advanced Dental Center at 843-627-4076 for dental implants Florence, SC.

Dr. John Hess received his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree at Stony Brook University School of Medicine. He received advanced training in Implant Dentistry, Oral Surgery and Cosmetic Dentistry at Palmetto Health Richland Hospital in Columbia, SC.
