Thinking of getting dental implants?  

There are many Americans with missing or broken teeth who may be embarrassed or self-conscience about their smile. Luckily, dental implants can help these people fill the gaps in their mouth. According to the American Dental Association, the development of implants ranks among the most important advances in dentistry in the past 40 years.

Dental Health Magazine recently published an article explaining the difference between tradtional and mini dental implants, to help people make a decsions about which is right for them. According to the news source, mini implants are cheaper than traditional ones and require dentists to make a smaller incision in the mouth, which means the gums will heal quicker. These devices have also been considered as effective as traditional implants.

However, traditional implants have a success rate well over 90 percent, while mini implants are a fairly new product on the market, meaning there are not as many statistics available on their durability in the long term. This is why individuals should talk to their dental health professional for his or her opinion on which implant will work for them.
