Mini dental implants require no invasive surgery, bone grafting, and the recovery time is very minimal. They are made from titanium and are very small. After a mild and local anesthetic is used, your implants will be placed about 5mm apart in your mouth. Small holes will be drilled and the MDIs will be secured. There is rarely discomfort or a need for stitching during the process.

You may be wondering which solutions is best for you.

We want you to make the best, most informed decision possible.

All dental implants are  assembled from titanium. Titanium is unprecedented because it’s a metal that is fully compatible with the body. There are very few metals that are biocompatible, implying they do not trigger an immune response in the human body.

Conventional dental implants are composed of two pieces with a diameter that is greater than 3mm. These dental implants have an external screw that is embedded into the jawbone. They also have an interior thread that allows multiple components (teeth, dentures) to be twisted down and fastened to the dental implant.

Mini dental implants are a reliable one-piece screw, small than 3mm in width, with a functional ball-shaped end that sticks outside of the jaw bone. they are very helpful for providing support and comfort to dentures. The denture or fabricated teeth have a rubber O-ring that goes around the mini dental implant ball.

Contrast between Mini Dental Implants and Conventional Dental Implants:

Because the mini dental implant is about half the diameter or the standard implant, it takes two mini dental implants to produce the support of one conventional dental implant.

Mini dental implants are about half the price of a standard dental implant.

There are many circumstances that may justify the use of a mini dental implant:

Individuals with inadequate health often have bone degeneration that makes the mini implant the exclusive option.

If a short-term fix is needed, the mini dental implant can buy some patients time until a more stable solution is possible.
