Mini-implants are similar to traditional dental implants, though they are smaller in diameter, which allows them to be implanted in areas where the jaw bone isn’t as dense. Because of their smaller size, mini-implants are often a more economical approach to restoring with dental implants, and can help patients on a budget. Also, mini-implants are suitable for single tooth replacement when the crown required is smaller, like on incisors or front teeth. Mini-implants take less time to heal and can sometimes be placed and restored in a single visit. They also work for implant-retained dentures, adding security to traditional dentures and preventing slips. Ask us if mini-implants are right for you!
