Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry is simple…first you will take a pill the evening before your appointment to help you get a good night's sleep. Next, you will have someone drive you to the office for your appointment.

One more small pill and a little laughing gas we'll have you relaxed and comfortable in no time…and before you know it, your appointment will be over. As a matter of fact, you'll probably remember very little of your office visit. Your teeth are very important and can affect many other areas of your health. So don't let you fears of the dentist get in your way. I promise that we will take great care of you and will make sure your visit is enjoyable.

Mini Dental Implant

The mini implant is placed into the bone, usually without surgery, and the denture or partial to be stabilized is fitted with O rings and snapped into place. If you are having trouble with your denture or partial shifting while eating or talking, mini implants could be your solution. Thousands of patients around the world now enjoy secure dentures that snap right in place without any adhesives! It is all made possible by mini dental implants that are placed in the jaw through a short, minimally invasive procedure.  These mini implants can function as long-term supporting structures rather than as short-term or medium term devices. In fact, some have been successfully functioning in patients' jaws for several decades. In the past several years, clinicians have been utilizing MDI's for single tooth replacements and in crown and bridge cases.

The FDA granted its formal consent in 1999 to market the Mini Dental Implant device not only as a transitional or temporary dental product, but significantly, as a long-term item. Many people suffer a great deal of discomfort as a result of lose or ill-fitting dentures. Many denture wearers simply withdraw from any type of social engagement as a result of being compelled to wear them.  It's also not uncommon for denture wearer's to have disagreeable breath as a result of food being trapped and decaying under their denture prosthesis.  Successful placement of the Mini Dental Implant addresses and solves all of these social and practical problems.  Mini Dental Implants can be utilized to stabilize a denture in just a couple of hours by a trained doctor, with the patient leaving the clinic with a stabilized prosthesis.

The standard procedure for mini dental implants calls for four studs, approximately the size of wooden toothpicks, to be gently screwed into the front of a patient's lower jaw. They are placed about five millimeters apart in the patient's mandible. This is a painless procedure that can be performed by a general dentist, requiring only a mild anesthesia. The patient's denture is then carefully adjusted by the dentist to allow it to snap onto the four mini implants. The result? A tight fitting, completely reliable system that allows a patient to speak and eat with confidence. The Mini Dental Implants are placed in about an hour's time.
