Dental mini implants
 
I'm considering mini implants for 2 front teeth. Any dentist recommendations? Anyone have experience with mini implants?

Yes, I am one of those who can't stand going to the dentist. In fact I have not gone for years. Then I broke a tooth and went looking and talked with some friends. They recommended Royal Dental at The Villages, phone number (352) 751-4446. The dentist in Dr. German Gaitan who is a really good dentist and I highly recommend him. Alex

Pardon my ignorance, but what is the difference between a mini implant and a regular implant?

The difference is price.I have a regular implant and it was expensive.But if you look at both side by side you see the big difference strength.The metal post for a mini implant is a lot smaller then the regular implant.

What is the difference in cost of a mini implant and a regular implant? Has anyone had the mini implants and what are your thoughts?

Thank you.

Can you get implants for just the front teeth? My wife has been told she would need a whole mouthful if she wants any at all.

I just one implant.

I am just researching mini implants so that a denture can be created to snap onto it. I was curious about costs. I definitely will need bottom and the top maybe just around the corner. Any advice.. recommendations... concerns... and costs... up front.. unforseen... etc...

I had an appointment this morning with Dr. Caylor in Laurel Manor. He pulled a tooth that had broken off a couple of weeks ago and also inserted an implant in another tooth that broke off and was pulled last year. He does a great job. I was able to eat a bowl of lukewarm soup within 3 hours and am here typing on my computer. I am on pain meds however.

I had one done by Dr Blanton in Leesburg. Excellent!

I hate to "beat a dead horse" but I'm very curious about costs. I am looking for the mini implants (approximately 4) so that dentures can be snapped on to them. For a lower or an upper are we talking more than $10,000 for each or is it less? I'm trying to get a gauge as to cost before I make an appointment with a professional. I am appalled at what my doctor in NY billed for lower bridges (the whole bottom with the exception of the teeth to attach to). It was more than $20,000 and here I am looking to replace the poor job he did only two years later!

Now I am curious - if you have implants you can "snap" dentures on rather than having a plate? Sounds intriguing. FYI - I am in northern Georgia and have been quoted $3500 for each implant (regular not mini).

I have no experience yet with mini or other implants and such but I recommend Dr Gaitan at Royal Dental based on my recent visits with him and the staff. I believe you will find him very professional and honest to give you a best choice of options. The entire staff are great. I endorse them because of the way I've been treated as a person and not a number. If you are looking for info on dentist you can google their name for a complete bio. Hope I've helped.:thumbup:
