Mini dental implants may be an option for patients who are not candidates for conventional or regular implants. They are about half the size in diameter of a regular dental implant and offer many benefits.
- Mini implants (4-6) can be placed along the gum line to serve as the base for a denture. Rather than placing a single implant for a single tooth, an entire lower or upper set of teeth are directly attached to the gum line.
- The small size of mini implants means that the placement procedure is less invasive than a regular implant and the restoration can usually be placed right away or only a short time later.
- Mini implants are significantly more affordable than a regular size implant.
