Are you missing one or more teeth? Have you been told that you are not a candidate for traditional dental implants? Then we invite you to come and visit us at Potomac Dental Centre today for a FREE consultation with Dr. Eklund to learn more about how mini dental implants can restore your smile!

When dental implants began gaining prominence as a great advancement in dentistry, many wondered what the next step would be. Then, mini dental implants were developed and changed the face of implant dentistry forever. Our team at Potomac Dental Centre is proud to offer mini dental implants as part of our effort to continuously keep up with innovative technologies to help our patients get the best treatment possible.

Mini dental implants take a completely different approach than traditional dental implants. Traditional dental implants often require months of dental visits, significant bone grafting, and a long recovery period. Mini dental implants allow Dr. Eklund, our experienced dentist, to place small anchors in your jaw in just one, non-invasive visit. The goal of mini dental implants in Hagerstown, Maryland is to offer you a simple, gentle, non-surgical treatment option that provides immediate results. Dr. Eklund may suggest mini dental implants if you answer, “yes,” to any of these questions:

  • Do you have loose or painful dentures?
  • Are you having trouble chewing?
  • Do you have a bridge that is causing problems for your other teeth?
  • Are you too embarrassed to smile because of a missing tooth?

Mini dental implants are most often used to replace missing teeth, stabilize full or partial dentures, and to help our patients who have experienced significant bone loss. We also provide a fixed implant bridge option for you if you do not want to deal with bulky dentures anymore. This has changed lives and gotten rid of the overall irritation people have had over the years with their dentures. Acquire a “third set of teeth” and throw away your denture forever! “Traditional” dental implants require a strong and healthy jaw to hold the titanium post, but many who have lost teeth have also experienced significant bone loss, disqualifying them from dental implants. Now with “MINI” dental implants, most people are great candidates.

There are many benefits to replacing missing teeth. By utilizing mini dental implants, not only will your self-confidence rise, but so will your overall oral health. Mini dental implants can help you chew and speak properly while also preventing your natural teeth from shifting out of place. This helps preserve your natural facial structure and volume. As a permanent solution, mini dental implants are meant to look and feel just like your natural smile.

With mini dental implants, our patients in this situation can still receive a beautiful, comfortable restoration to last a lifetime. Dr. Eklund is dedicated to working with you and helping you feel confident with the care you receive at our dental office. If you are interested in learning more about mini dental implants, we encourage you to contact our dental office today and schedule your free mini dental implant consultation. We look forward to helping restore your beautiful smile!

OSSEAN® Surface

When you receive your mini dental implant treatment, our dentist at Potomac Dental Centre will use OSSEAN® Surface technology to ensure that your implant is clean, helping to prevent complications during your healing process. To learn more about OSSEAN Surface in Hagerstown, Maryland, and to make your appointment with Dr. Everett Eklund, please call our office today at 301-790-2007.

OSSEAN® Surface technology is used to improve the chances of success for your implant procedure. There have been many scientific papers published about the remarkable performance of OSSEAN Surface in comparison to similar techniques, particularly during the initial phase of healing immediately following implant placement. These studies report that the nature of the healing chain is changed and shorted. OSSEAN technology compresses the healing process, the most critical phase of your implant treatment, from the moment your implant is surgically placed and through the first few weeks of your healing process, when most complications and adverse effects occur.

The beginning portions of your healing phase also sets the stage for the ongoing and long-term success of any future implants. As such, the importance of compressing and shortening this healing phase is very important. “In-vivo” bone histological, gene expression and nonmechanical studies show that OSSEAN Surface plays a critical role at the DNA level by favorably enhancing osteoblasts formations and accelerating the mineralization of newly formed bone.

OSSEAN Surface works through a robotic micro-blasting system. Prior to being placed in your mouth, each implant is robotically micro-blasted in a sterile environment for precise control. This process is followed by robotic sequencing and differentials for site-specific modification, preserving the cutting groove geometry, or sharpness, of the implant and permitting each section of your implant to have the optimal topography and surface roughness to be placed effectively. Procedures derived and adapted from the semiconductor industry for bio-medical applications ensure an exceptionally clean surface, and each surface is confirmed as free from contaminants by XPS-ESCA (Electron Spectroscopy for Chemical Analysis).
