Traditional dental implants were seen to be groundbreaking when they were first introduced as a viable tooth replacement. Dental implants became the first treatment that provided patients with long lasting stability in dental prosthetic procedure. They reduced the need for surrounding structures on the mouth and traditional implants are still used today. They are often used to replace a broken, damaged, or missing tooth. They also assist with the stabilizing of other dental prosthetics such as bridges and crowns.
Mini dental implants when compared with traditional implants are similar in nature. The difference between them is that mini dental implants are smaller than more original dental implants.
In Rockville, MD traditional dental implants are more expensive than the mini dental implants. This is due to the fact that mini dental implants are smaller, using less material therefore making them more cost effective than their counterparts.
Procedures that use the mini dental implants are also less invasive and patients often only require a single treatment. Dental implants on the other hand, require numerous treatments in order for the procedure to be complete. They are also more invasive procedures compared to those using the mini dental implants. This raises the cost of traditional dental implants.
