Mini dental implants are similar to traditional dental implants. Typically mini dental implants are used for smaller spaces, or patients that have naturally smaller teeth. Mini implants are smaller compared to traditional implants, and are usually a less expensive option for patients.
With mini dental implants the anchor and abutment are made of one piece and protrude out of the gums. The crown is then secured on top, and this provides a secure base for the crown or dentures used.
Mini dental implants is a faster procedure compared to traditional implants. The recovery for patients is minimal, and in most cases patients can return to their normal routine immediately after the procedure.
Benefits of mini dental implants:
- Bone grafting is usually not needed with mini dental implants. This is one less stop in the process, and helps with cost.
- The mini dental implant procedure is less involved compared to traditional dental implants.
- The screws with mini dental implants are smaller and so are the crowns used. As a result, they usually cost less compared to traditional implants.
