Not afraid of the dentist anymore. Dr Akeel and his staff make you feel like part of their family. Not only a superb dentist but personality plus. Never short changed on time necessary to complete a procedure.

Just had an incredible experience at Dr. Akeel's office. His front desk staff was quick to find me an appointment at the last minute and upon my arrival extremely attentive and helpful with insurance questions. My cleaning with Cheryl was fantastic, she explained everything and took the time to offer some advice as well as extra time to remove some hard to remove stains and showed me photos of my teeth while explaining the potential causes. Dr. Akeel, was also very kind and took the time to bu

The Mini Dental Implant Procedure  The mini dental implant procedure takes place in our Charlottesville dental office, with local anesthesia. Typically, the procedure takes only one appointment and can be completed within 2-hours!

Dr. Akeel uses a precise and controlled technique to insert the small diameter implants (around 2 millimeters wide) into your jawbone.

•With heads that are shaped like a ball, the implants protrude from the gum tissue where they will provide a secure anchor for your dentures. •Metal housings that carry a rubber O-ring will be inserted into the bottom of your dentures. •When your dentist seats the dentures on the mini dental implants, the O-ring snaps over the ball like a socket and locks the dentures firmly into place as they gently rest on the gum tissue.

Implants are designed to help your dentures work like natural teeth, allowing easy and comfortable mobility for functions such as eating, talking and laughing.

The ResultsBecause of the minimally invasive nature of the mini dental implant procedure, the MDI placement won't require you to go through a lengthy healing period.

Within a few days, you'll be out and about, enjoying a lunch of your favorite foods, talking with ease, laughing and smiling freely. All that time, you're feeling a new stability in your dentures—secure that they have the staying power you need without messy denture adhesives or creams
