Replace Missing Teeth with Mini-Dental Implants with Frankfort, Illinois Dentist James Tharp, DDS
Randy Alvarez, host of The Wellness Hour, interviews Frankfort, Illinois Dentist James Tharp, DDS about mini-dental implants.
Dr. Tharp’s focus is on providing you with the revolutionary benefits of mini dental implant dentistry. This unique approach to modern dentistry offers new opportunities for individuals who have lost one or more teeth. Even for those who have lost all of their teeth, mini implants offer a second chance at teeth that look, feel, and function more like the teeth they were born with!
Half the Size
Mini Implants are about half the size of traditional implant, and therefore don’t require as much bone structure. With less bone needed, costly, painful and time-consuming bone grafts that are usually necessary with traditional implants are not usually needed for minis.
Less Healing Time & Fewer Office Visits
Because mini implants are much smaller, placing them is a less invasive procedure—requiring less healing time and discomfort, and fewer visits to the dentist’s office
Because they are less invasive, and don’t require the lengthy healing time of traditional implants, they can typically be loaded with crowns, bridges and dentures immediately.
Half the Cost
In most cases, the mini implant is less than half the cost of a traditional implant.
No More Decay
Implants are made out of titanium—the same type of material that is used on artificial joints, and they are not subject to decay and periodontal disease
Preserves Bone Structure
Implants preserve your natural bone stucture so you can maintain the shape of your face and avoid continued bone loss where teeth are missing.
