What are mini dental implants?
A mini dental implant is a smaller version of a standard dental implant, hence the descriptive name. Mini dental implants are often placed to secure a set of dentures in place, promoting enhanced stability and comfort. Dentures retained with mini dental implants can be designed to feel and look like natural teeth, giving patients more confidence to smile.
Do I need mini dental implants?
Mini dental implants can serve as a less invasive alternative to standard dental implants. If you are looking for a way to replace missing teeth with as little dental work as possible, our dentist may recommend this option to you. Benefits of mini dental implants include:
- A less invasive placement process that is more comfortable and allows for quicker healing than standard dental implants
- Lower cost than standard dental implants
- In some cases, mini dental implants can be installed and dentures attached over them in the same day, so your tooth replacement process can be faster
- Mini dental implants that are installed to anchor dentures in your mouth can allow you to smile, eat, and speak comfortably and confidently. No need to worry about your dentures becoming loose or falling out!
Like standard dental implants, mini dental implants can prevent loss of bone density after you have lost a tooth. This helps keep your facial shape and volume looking full and natural.
