Dental implants are an excellent option for replacing one or more missing teeth. Implants are designed to look and feel as close to your natural teeth as possible and help to restore the mechanical function of your mouth.
There are two types of dental implants that are often used, conventional (full) implants and mini implants. Mini implants are used where there is insufficient jaw bone for a full implant to be placed.
Each patient is different, and Dr. Watkins will assess your individual circumstances to determine which implant is the best option for you.
Dr. Watkins maintains privileges at William Newton Memorial Hospital in Winfield, Kansas. This allows certain dental cases to be completed under general anesthesia. Some examples of cases that benefit from this treatment option include children that need several restorations completed at once, and fearful patients in need of wisdom teeth extractions.
