Dr. Michael Collier, dental implants dentist in Oakwood, GA is now offering mini dental implants to his local patients to make permanent, confident smiles available to more people who need them. Because mini dental implants are approximately half the size of traditional implants, they require less invasive procedures and are also less expensive.
Traditional dental implants require invasive surgery in order to insert a small metal screw, or stud into the jaw bone. Mini dental implants are much smaller than traditional implants, which means they can be inserted right through the gum into the jawbone and don't require major incisions or surgery. The smaller size also allows more people to be good candidates for the procedure, since they don't require as much jaw bone density as is needed for traditional dental implants.
“Traditional dental implants have been life changing in every sense of the word for our patients, and we're excited about the mini dental implants since it means that we can offer that same benefit to more of our patients,” said Dr. Collier. “With this procedure, patients get a part of their life back that was lost with their permanent teeth, and can finally feel confident about their smile again.”
Mini dental implants are mainly used to replace full upper and lower arches of teeth. Unlike traditional implants that would require an incision for each artificial tooth, mini dental implants allow for just 4-6 implants along with gum line, to which permanent dentures can be attached.
In addition to traditional and mini dental implants, Dr. Collier and his staff provide a variety of other dental services to offer their patients the most comprehensive care available. Dr. Collier is an oral sedation dentist to help patients who may have fear or anxiety about dental visits. As a general family dentist, he offers preventative care, extractions, periodontal treatments, tooth-colored fillings, wisdom teeth removal, and more. Patients looking for straighter teeth will also find Invisalign and ClearCorrect options available at Dr. Collier's office.
Dr. Collier has been an active member of the dental profession for more than 40 years. He is a graduate of Emory University School of Dentistry and soon after served in the U.S. Army as a Captain in the Dental Corps during the Vietnam War. Dr. Collier is committed to staying current with the latest tools and trends in the industry, and through his decades of experience, he has achieved numerous awards and accreditations for dental excellence. He is a recipient of the Academy of General Dentistry Fellowship Award for completing more than 500 hours of continuing education and passing a comprehensive exam. He has also received Fellowship Awards from the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and the American Orthodontic Society. Dr. Collier is committed to giving back to the community with his professional skills, and regularly volunteers at free local dental clinics and through international humanitarian trips.
