OZARK, MO — Extending her services at the Barnett-Davis Dental Group, Ozark, MO dentist Dr. Tracy Davis now provides mini dental implant options for her patients. Dr. Davis is now the second practitioner at the Ozark practice providing this service to patients, with Dr. Marc Barnett providing mini dental implants since April 2009.
“Having two doctors with the ability to implement mini implants affords our practice great depth and flexibility,” said Ozark, MO dental implants expert Dr. Marc Barnett. “With both of us available for the procedure, our patients won’t have to wait if one of us is out of town or if a patient needs immediate treatment.”
Mini dental implants are narrow implants especially beneficial in replacing small teeth that are missing and also for instantly stabilizing lower jaw dentures. Traditional implants require a long period of healing time before chewing pressure can be applied and are more invasive to place. Mini dental implants, however, can withstand pressure immediately; are less costly; involve quicker and fewer visits; and have less healing time. In some cases, traditional implants may still be preferred notes Dr. Davis. To determine the best method of treatment, the Barnett-Davis Dental Group offers a free cosmetic consultation appointment.
“Though not every patient is a viable candidate for mini dental implants, the benefits of the procedure are immense,” said Dr. Davis. “The best thing we can provide our patients as a practice is options, and mini dental implants are a great option for many prosthetic dental procedures. Imagine the benefits of having an implant placed and the custom crown cemented in the same visit!”
Dr. Davis attended the advanced seminar at the Mini Dental Implant Training Centre in Orlando, FL. According to the organization, their seminar brings together the top trainers in mini dental implants from around the world to instruct in mini dental implant placement protocol; treatment planning and case selection; on-stage denture stabilization; immediate implants and crowns; and full arch reconstruction with mini dental implants.
Dr. Tracy Davis is one of three general dentists at the Barnett-Davis Dental Group, an Ozark, MO dentistry practice. Along with Drs. Marc and Kelly Barnett, Dr. Davis provides all aspects of general dentistry including: restorative, endodontics, prosthodontics, orthodontics, laser-assisted dentistry, tooth-whitening, and cosmetic dentistry to their community.
