Mini Implants
 

Mini dental implants are about half the size in diameter of a regular dental implant, which offers many benefits in that they can be used in situations where regular implants cannot. If an implant needs to be placed in a narrow space, mini implants are the preferred method because of their smaller size.

Mini implants are primarily used when getting full upper or lower dentures. A series of mini implants (4-6) are placed along the gum line to serve as the base for the denture. Rather than placing a single implant on a single tooth, an entire lower or upper set of teeth are attached directly to the gum line.

The small size of mini implants often means that no incision needs to be made and they can usually be inserted right through the gum into the bone. This eliminates the need for a recovery period, and the restoration can usually be placed right away or shortly after.

Mini implants are also less expensive than regular implants so they are often the preferred solution. Ask your dentist if mini implants are right for you today.
