Traditional and Mini Dental Implants in Marysville
Tooth loss is no longer the inevitable end of the normal function and natural beauty to people’s smiles. With the modern treatment of dental implants, smiles are restored to their original state of health. Not only are missing teeth replaced, but the health of the jaw and other teeth benefit from dental implants as well.
Dr. Jeffrey E. Himler has vast experience in placing dental implants, utilizing time-saving technology that ensures precision and accuracy. Dr. Jeffrey Himler Family Dentistry compassionately serves people living in and near Marysville.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed into the jaw and fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration. Bone growth envelopes the post making it a secure tooth root for a prosthetic crown. Prosthetic crowns shine with the luster of natural enamel and the office of Dr. Himler designs them to match and enhance the beauty of your surrounding dentition.
Health Advantages of Dental Implants
Dental implants positively affect oral health. They keep surrounding teeth from shifting out of alignment, and they maintain the health of the jawbone. After tooth loss, the jaw bone begins to atrophy, losing volume and strength. Implant posts stimulate the jaw tissue and prevent the bone from resorption. If the jaw bone loses volume due to resorption, the facial structure begins to undergo changes. The mouth can appear sunken, prematurely aging a person’s appearance.
Traditional implants require a process of about four months to complete and they have a success rate of over 95%.
Mini Dental Implants
Dr. Himler also offers mini implants, which are smaller and narrower in size. Mini implants only require a few days for recovery, and they can be placed in the jaw and fitted to a denture one dental visit. These are an alternative treatment for those with specific dental issues, such as:
- A significant bone loss in the jaw.
- Small jaws or tight spaces in the mouth.
- Often used on front teeth.
- More affordable than traditional implants.

Whether receiving traditional dental implants or mini implants, Dr. Himler uses a 3-dimensional scanner which expertly and accurately guides placement of the implants posts into the jaw. His dental office also uses CEREC technology to design and fabricate beautiful prosthetics right in his office.
