PROVIDING THE REVOLUTIONARY BENEFITS OF MINI IMPLANTS
Our focus is on providing you with the revolutionary benefits of mini dental implant dentistry. This unique approach to modern dentistry offers new opportunities for individuals who have lost one or more teeth. Even for those who have lost all of their teeth, mini implants offer a second chance at teeth that look, feel, and function more like the teeth they were born with!
THE MINI IMPLANT ADVANTAGE
Half the Size
Mini Implants are about half the size of traditional implant, and therefore don't require as much bone structure. With less bone needed, costly, painful and time-consuming bone grafts that are usually necessary with traditional implants are not usually needed for minis.
Less Healing Time & Fewer Office Visits
Because mini implants are much smaller, placing them is a less invasive procedure---requiring less healing time and discomfort, and fewer visits to the dentist's office
Because they are less invasive, and don't require the lengthy healing time of traditional implants, they can typically be loaded with crowns, bridges and dentures immediately.
Half the Cost
In most cases, the mini implant is less than half the cost of a traditional implant.
No More Decay
Implants are made out of titanium---the same type of material that is used on artificial joints, and they are not subject to decay and periodontal disease
Preserves Bone Structure
Implants preserve your natural bone stucture so you can maintain the shape of your face and avoid continued bone loss where teeth are missing
Designing Smiles is a hidden gem located just south of the Babcock St. and Hibiscus Rd intersection in Melbourne. Dr. Apel and his staff are ultra-proficient in both state of the art dentistry and keeping the patient comfortable. Most of his dental hygienists have worked with him for many years and they truly work together as one unit. Really amazing to see. Our family has used Designing Smiles for at least fifteen years and we are always satisfied customers. He is an artisan in creating both beautiful but natural veneers as well. His office staff is super-on-the-ball as well. We highly recommend this office and this physician!
Dr Apel is very personable and professional. He does excellent work and spends all the time needed to complete the procedure. He does not rush through things. I actually went to sleep in the chair when he was working on me. Highly recommend him and his staff.
