Mini Dental Implants
Washington DC & Bethesda – Chevy Chase

Dental implants are the best way to replace lost teeth; they are permanent, easy to take care of and can last a lifetime. Dental Prosthodontist Washington DC Dr. Gerald Marlinimplants have been proven to be successful in more than 95% of cases. Dental implants come in different varieties, one of which is the mini implant. As the name implies, these implants are smaller than traditional implants, and can be used in areas not accessible with traditional ones or to support a less costly prosthesis.

Since mini dental implants require less bone than traditional implants, many people who are not candidates for traditional implants due to insufficient bone may be candidates for the mini implants. They can either serve as permanent implants, or as interim ones to hold and stabilize a denture while the bone is being rebuilt by grafting. Depending upon the situation and/or the type of prosthesis seated on them, mini implants can be less costly than traditional implants. Since they are immediately loaded, mini implants provide instant stability to the denture prosthesis.

Mini implants are not intended to support individual crowns (caps), but they can be used to replace all of the teeth in the edentulous mouth to stabilize an overdenture.

If you have been told that traditional implants are not for you, mini dental implants may still be an option. If you live in the Maryland, D.C. or Virginia area and would like to learn more about mini dental implants, call our office to set up a consultation with Dr. Marlin today.

I have received extensive dental treatment from Dr. Marlin over the last 12+ years. I had to have more than 5 implants and subsequent crowns and bone grafts; the work was performed flawlessly and with sensitivity. The staff were wonderful.

I've been a patient of Dr. Marlin for about 15 years now. Over the years I have been very happy with the care, and quality of work. Now, going through my first dental implant, and seeing what's involved in this procedure, I know that I would never want to take a chance going to anyone else. BTW, the staff is super. Efficient and very, very caring.
