The Mini Dental Implant Process

In this video, experienced implant dentist Luz Cabrera, DMD, explains the steps involved in the placement of a miniature dental implant.

The process of getting mini dental implants is straightforward and involves a few key steps.

Here’s an overview:

  • Free Consultation: It all begins with a free consultation where we assess your dental needs and discuss your options.
  • Impressions: After the consultation, we take impressions of your teeth.
  • CT Scan Study: These impressions are sent to a specialized lab for a study with a CT scan, which is a radiographic tool. This study helps us create a surgical guide or template.
  • Surgical Guide: The surgical guide is a crucial tool that assists us in precisely determining the optimal locations for placing the mini implants.
  • Implant Placement: With the surgical guide in place, we proceed to place the mini implants. On the same day as the implant placement, we attach temporary crowns.
  • Final Impression: We take a final impression on the same day as the implant placement.
  • Final Restoration: In just ten days, the final restoration, such as a crown, is ready to be placed in your mouth.
If you’re interested in undergoing this procedure, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re here to guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have. Your satisfaction and dental health are our priorities, and we look forward to assisting you.
