Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants are about half the size in diameter of regular dental implants. This offers many benefits, and they can also 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.

In addition to single tooth restorations, mini implants can be used to secure a full upper or lower denture. Due to their small size, a series of mini implants (4-6) is typically preferred.

The small size of mini implants often means that no incision needs to be made to place the implant. 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 only a short time after.
