You may have already heard of the many cosmetic and health benefits of tooth restoration using dental implants. However, not everyone is able to undergo dental implant surgery. Pre-existing medical conditions and lack of bone density can actually exclude many potential dental implant candidates. If you fall into this category, you may still be able to get less invasive, but still effective, “mini dental implants.”
Mini Dental Implants can be placed inside existing gum tissue and provide the same support and durability as full sized dental implants. They can also be used to realign and improve dentures, and can be placed in under two hours. For your mini dental implants consultation, just make an appointment with Dr. Angela Ruff at Ascot Aesthetics Implants & Dentistry today. Dr. Ruff is a highly qualified restorative and cosmetic dentist proudly serving patients throughout Fayetteville, NC, Spring Lake, and all of Cumberland County.
What Are the Benefits of Mini Dental Implants?
- No need for complex gum flap surgery or costly bone grafts
- Less invasive
- Shorter healing time
- Less Discomfort
- Convenient and comfortable
- Prevents facial collapse
- Fewer Complications
- More affordable than traditional dental implants
Mini dental implants have all the advantages of full size dental implants, but can be placed without additional complex surgeries, and healing time is reduced from months to days.Since the mini dental implant is fixed in your jawbone like a tooth root, it also prevents the facial collapse that can occur with tooth and bone loss.Typically the procedure can be completed in one short visit and most patients can eat normally the same afternoon. Unlike dentures, mini dental implants do not slip or feel awkward, and unlike dental bridges, they will not affect your surrounding healthy teeth. Make an appointment with Dr. Angela Ruff at Ascot Aesthetics Implants & Dentistry today for your mini dental implants consultation. Dr. Ruff proudly restores smiles throughout Fayetteville, NC, Spring Lake, Cumberland County, and nearby areas.

Have you experienced the loss of one or more teeth? Ascot Aesthetic Implants & Dentistry can help you restore what’s been lost with dental implants. This popular and effective restorative dentistry service creates natural results through the combination of one or more metal implants posts, plus a new crown, bridge, partial, or full denture.
The post portion of dental implants have the job of anchoring your new restoration to your jaw, in much the same way as a natural tooth root would. Your tooth roots are important because they anchor your teeth to your jaw, but also because they encourage your jawbone to grow new bone tissue throughout your life. With one or more tooth roots missing from your smile, your jawbone will begin to weaken, eventually putting nearby teeth at risk of being lost as well.
Dental implants can help you preserve remaining teeth and strengthen your jaw by mimicking the relationship between the jaw and a natural tooth root. Treatment with dental implants is completed in two stages. In the first stage, one or more implants are surgically implanted in the jaw. After a healing period, in which your implant(s) has had a chance to bond with the bone in your jaw, you’ll come back to Ascot Aesthetic Implants & Dentistry to have your new restoration attached.
Dental implants aren’t right for every patient, though. A consultation with our Fayetteville dental team will help us decide what course of action is the best for your particular needs. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Angela Ruff, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Dr. Ruff is happy to offer restorative care to patients from Fayetteville, Spring Lake, and all of Cumberland County.
