Are you unable to eat the foods you love? Embarrassed to smile? Tired of loose dentures?
Say goodbye to all your worries and hello to mini dental implants.
Mini dental implants are lasting, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or complete arches of teeth. The dental implant, which is made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. It replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. Dr. Everett Eklund can provide everything from the surgical placement of the implant to the completion of the implant restoration. Patients having extractions and implants placed will also have grafting procedures done to help with bone support and healing.
Dental implants might be the best solution for you if you:
- Lost a tooth or multiple teeth.
- Have a loose denture.
- Have thin bone.
- Need a tooth extracted that is unrestorable.
- Want to replace an uncomfortable partial denture.
- Need a fixed dental bridge.
There are many benefits to replacing missing teeth. Mini dental implants will increase your self confidence by giving you a full, beautiful smile. Implants can help you chew and speak properly while also preventing your natural teeth from shifting out of place, helping to 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.

Tooth Replacement with Mini Dental Implants
Semi-Removable Zirconia Bridge
Non-removable Zirconia Bridge
Single and Multiple Tooth Replacement With Mini Implants
Mini dental implants can be used to replace single or multiple missing or damaged teeth. With a natural look and feel, mini dental implants can help restore your smile to its full beauty and function.
(Removable Acrylic Overdenture)
Implant-supported dentures, also known as removable acrylic overdentures, are a great alternative to traditional dentures, offering more stability for a long-term solution. They are the most economical implant-supported option and can be removed by both the patient and the dentist.
Semi-Removable Zirconia Bridge
(Fix on Six®)
Fix on Six® is a semi-removable zirconia bridge option that offers a less bulky alternative to implant supported dentures. The bridge attaches to the implants but is not cemented, so it can be removed by the dentist, but not the patient.
Non-removable Zirconia Bridge
A non-removable zirconia bridge, also known as a roundhouse, includes 8-12 mini dental implants placed to help secure your zirconia bridge, which is cemented directly on the implants. It can offer the most natural look and feel of our options, and it is not removable by the patient or the dentist.
Often, if a patient is in need of any extractions and wants dental implants, we can provide same-day mini dental implants. Here at Potomac Dental Centre, we make sure our patients receive the best care which in turn will give them the best final results. We use a variety of techniques for bone preservation and grafting. Our goal is to promote fast healing time and strong integration, providing a stable, healthy dental implant allowing our patients to smile and eat the foods they love again.
If your bone tissue has deteriorated, we'll increase the density of the bone so that it will be able to support an implant. Our dentists at Potomac Dental Centre use materials and technology to help increase your bone density and allow you to receive your restorative treatment. Our system of biodegradable polymer and bioceramic composites can improve bone regeneration, optimizing resorption, osteogenesis, and osteointegration to stimulate new bone growth without major surgrery. Please contact us to learn more and to schedule your appointment.
L-PRF (Leukocyte-Platelet Rich Fibrin)
Dr. Everett Eklund uses Leukocyte-Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF) to help accelerate your healing process following your surgical implant placement. To learn more about L-PRF and to make your appointment, call Potomac Dental Centre today.
Leukocyte-Platelet Rich Fibrin is an autogenous combination of platelet rich fibrin, which our dentist derives from your blood. Using a simplified chairside procedure, our dentist produces and thin, compressed layer of platelet rich fibrin that is strong, pliable, and easy to use in suturing. The L-PRF is rich in platelets, cytokines, and other protein growth factors found in blood platelets and leukocytes that promote rapid healing. This network of L-PRF promotes more efficient cell migration and proliferation, and provides a more rapid healing process, especially in the first few days after your implant placement.
L-PRF is easy to manipulate. Our dentist can cut it to the appropriate size for your treatment and the material can be easily adapted to many different anatomical areas. It is also adhesive in nature and will remain stable at room temperature for several hours.
We invite you to contact our practice today for more information on L-PRF and to schedule your consultation with our talented dentist.
Hemostatic Dressing and OsteoGen®
When our dentist performs your implant placement procedure, he will use a hemostatic dressing and OsteoGen® to help stop the blood flow and begin the healing process. For more information about hemostatic dressings and OsteoGen® and to make your appointment, please contact our office today.
Hemostasis is a process used to stop bleeding. Hemostatic agents are available as powders, granules, or as dressings. Following your implant placement surgery, our dentist will provide you with a hemostatic dressing to stop the flow of blood from the surgical site and help begin the healing process. This dressing is typically medical gauze that has been specially treated with the correct agent to begin sealing off your injured blood vessels.
We welcome you to contact our practice today to learn more about hemostatic dressings and OsteoGen®, and to schedule a consultation.
