Alternative to Regular Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are an option for patients looking to replace lost teeth but who don’t want to undergo invasive surgery required for regular implants.
Mini dental implants are simple, gentle and used for placement within narrow spaces. They may be used for small teeth and incisors for the best results. Additionally, mini dental implants may be best for patients who require stabilization of lower jaw dentures, pre-molar teeth or a missing tooth that was located in a narrow area.
Mini dental implants are approximately half the width of traditional implants and are not fully submerged. If implant failure occurs, the small size of the area means grafting is not necessary.
Other benefits of mini dental implants include:
- Simple, gentle, non-surgical procedure
- Less pain
- Immediate results
- Snap-in upper and lower dentures
- Anchors for dentures, crowns, and bridges
- Preserves bone
The procedure for mini implants is a much less invasive procedure than conventional dental implants. For this reason, the procedure can typically be completed in one, easy visit to your dentist’s office.
