Mini dental implants are an alternative to traditional dental implants but are typically used in situations where a smaller implant is needed to fit into a narrow location. Smaller teeth and incisors are good candidates for mini dental implants as are devices that require stabilization, such as lower jaw dentures.
Mini dental implants are about half the diameter.
Mini dental implants cost less.
Mini implants do not contain a screw.
In the rare event of dental implant failure, mini dental implants do not require grafting.
Mini dental implants are less invasive, heal faster, and have shorter procedure times.
