LOS ANGELES, May 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Angeles dental implants expert, Dr. Kevin B. Sands, today compares full and mini dental implants for area patients. Both options replace tooth roots and prevent all of the complications of tooth loss in addition to improving appearance and oral functionality. Unlike full dental implants, however, mini implants are available to more patients because they do not require the same degree of jaw bone density and size. The lack of preparation necessary for mini implants also speeds treatment and improves convenience for busy patients. Contact the office about dental implants cost and procedure details.

As more patients have become aware of the benefits of preventing jaw bone resorption with dental implants, this tooth replacement option has become a preferred replacement for missing teeth. Although dentures and bridge-supported crowns can restore looks and oral functioning, neither replaces tooth roots. Furthermore, bridges require the presence of healthy neighboring teeth while dental implants stand on their own because they are fused with the jaw bone. Compared to traditional dentures, full mouth dental implants are completely stable and never slip or click when patients speak or eat. Visit to learn more.

Mini implants provide the same benefits offered by full dental implants, but their simple placement makes them an option for more patients and virtually eliminates a recovery period. Although similar to full dental implants in terms of their basic design, mini implants are smaller in length and diameter. Mini implants can be used for attachment of crowns or stabilization of dentures, and their placement can be performed in two appointments instead of the three necessary for traditional dental implant placement. After Los Angeles dental implants expert Dr. Kevin B. Sands places mini implants, patients can immediately start eating lightly and are unlikely to suffer any discomfort in the days or weeks ahead.
