A dental implant is a great way to get a tooth or several teeth permanently fixed into place. They offer a great advantage over dentures and bridges because implants are not removable and so offer a great deal more convenience and permanence.
A mini dental implant is a specialty within a specialty. These implants are different than normal implants, in that they are much smaller in size, and so require more precision for placement. The mini implant is often used in areas where smaller teeth are located, or for patients that also have dentures.
They are great for those who want the permanence of a dental implant but don’t want the risk of a failed implant or the expense of a full dental implant. These are perfect for people of all ages, and the cosmetic effect of these mini dental implants is spectacular. The look just like the real thing and no one will notice you have an implant in almost all cases.
A mini implant does have several advantages. It is smaller and so requires less dental surgery to implant it into the mouth, and it is often less expensive than the full sized tooth implant. The smaller size of the implant area also means that a failure doesn’t require the amount of grafting, and in some cases, requires no grafting, that a regular implant does.
