Mini Dental Implants
|•||Narrow: A mini dental implant is more narrow than a standard or wide dental implant. The mini dental implant is about 1.3-3.3 millimeters in diameter opposed to a standard implant at 3.4-5.8 millimeters in diameter. The mini and standard implants are about the same length, which varies from other implants which may come longer to capture denser bone.
|•||Less Bone Needed: The mini implants narrower design means that less bone material is needed to sink the implant into. This may reduce the time needed to grow thicker bone.
|•||Uses: A mini dental implant can be an excellent choice when used appropriately. We will review and discuss your needs, but most often, mini implants are used to replace front teeth or as part of an implant retained denture system.
|•||Less Invasive with Faster Healing: Having a dental implant placed, any implant, is considered a minimally invasive procedure that is often approved for most patients. Having a mini dental implant is even less invasive. Because of the more narrow diameter, we are able to disturb your soft and hard tissue that much less. Additionally, we are often not required to grow new bone, and the crown or denture can be placed the same day as surgery without waiting for a healing period. Overall, the entire process is done much more quickly.
|•||Less Cost: Because there are less steps involved, that means less time in the chair, meaning less expense. We are able to complete the work in as little as two office visits.|
