Need to Know: Mini Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth, but traditional dental implants may not be a suitable option for everyone. Mini dental implants may provide a solution if cost or bone density is an issue. 

As the name suggests, mini implants are much smaller than traditional implants and the method of attachment is non-invasive. This means that healing time is faster and fewer trips to the dentist are needed.

Key takeaways:

  • Mini implants are suitable for people who have a lower bone density in their jaw.
  • Mini implants are less expensive that traditional dental implants.
  • Mini implants can be inserted in a day, so you have results very quickly.

Mini dental implants have the same benefits over dentures that traditional implants have. They provide a secure and permanent option to replace missing teeth. Ask your dentist if mini dental implants are a suitable option to restore your smile.
