If you’re looking for a dental implant solution but don’t have the bone mass to support traditional implants, your search is over!

You’ve heard that good things come in small packages, and at Beckham Dental in Cave Creek, AZ, you’ll definitely find that to be true. Thanks to Dr. Beckham, our highly experienced specialist, we offer mini dental implants.

Today’s blog sheds light on what makes these tiny little tools a life-changing solution for so many patients.

Dr. Beckham Is The Experienced Professional You Can Trust!

Dr. Mike Beckham has been serving the Cave Creek community for 36 years. His compassion for patients and commitment to continued training and education make him a trusted professional you can count on for real solutions to your dental problems.

Dr. Beckham recently attended a two day seminar hosted by the principal innovator and developer of mini dental implants, Todd Shatkin. Their professional relationship spans nearly 15 years, and Dr. Beckham has had the good fortune of studying under Dr. Shatkin and observing his mini implant techniques. The two day seminar was devoted to Dr. Shatkin’s F.I.R.S.T. (which stands for Fabricated Implant Restoration and Surgical Technique). This allows patients to receive treatment in one day without having to sacrifice their existing healthy tooth structure.

Some Benefits Of Mini Dental Implants

So just what is it about  mini dental implants  that make them a viable dental solution? Let’s break it down for you!

Mini dental implant treatment:

-is simple, gentle, and non-surgical.

-stabilizes dentures in only one visit.

-replaces missing teeth instantly.

-is cost effective with proven, lasting results.

Another added benefit of mini dental implants is their smaller size, hence their name. A smaller implant allows our patients to recover more quickly after treatment, so you’re back to enjoying your favorite foods and smiling with confidence in very little time.

So that’s why mini dental implants are good. Now, let’s tell you what makes them great!

Mini Dental Implants Are Life-Changing For Denture Wearers

Dr. Beckham has been placing mini implants since 2002, and he considers these years of experience as eye-opening. This is because he has come to truly understand just what people have to sacrifice in order to adapt to wearing dentures.

Wearing dentures can be such a miserable experience, but for those of us who have never had to deal with them, we can’t fully relate to what you have to go through to get used to living with them.

Dentures rest on the surface of your gums, so imagine what it would be like to bite into an apple or try to chew a nice, juicy steak. They can feel loose or maybe even shift around, making it impossible to enjoy eating or feel confident when sharing a meal with friends and family.

What mini dental implants have allowed us to do is offer a new strength and stability to your dentures. More notably, mini dental implants open up a world of possibility to long term denture wearers who’ve suffered significant loss in bone mass after losing their natural teeth.

Traditional implants are fine for a person with adequate bone level, but those who don’t have enough bone mass or those who aren’t healthy enough to undergo this expensive, invasive type of surgery are stuck dealing with their ill-fitting dentures.

That’s not true for our patients thanks to mini dental implants, which require a significantly lower bone level for successful placement. It gives patients who have never had options before a glimmer of hope… hope of a better quality of life, hope of enjoying social situations and intimate relationships with a renewed sense of confidence and self-esteem.

If you’ve come to just accept unstable, unreliable, or poorly fitted dentures as just a normal part of the aging process and have been told you’re not a viable candidate for traditional implants, we encourage you to call us for a consultation. Our highly experienced team of caring professionals is ready to listen to your needs and concerns and help you get back to the life you once enjoyed long ago. That life is out there, and it’s waiting for you at Beckham Dental in Cave Creek, AZ!
