Mini Implants

What are Mini Implants?

Mini dental implants, also known as miniature or small-diameter implants, are an innovative solution for securing dental prosthetics like dentures, bridges, and crowns. These miniature titanium screws, about the size of a toothpick, are surgically placed into the jawbone to act as anchors for restorations.

Unlike traditional implants that require a lengthy and invasive procedure, mini implants can often be placed during a single visit using only local anesthesia. The minimally invasive process involves creating a small hole in the jawbone and gently screwing the mini implant into place.

What are the Benefits of Mini Implants?

Mini dental implants offer numerous advantages over traditional full-size implants, making them an excellent solution for many patients. Some of the key benefits include:

  • Minimally Invasive Procedure: The procedure to place mini implants is straightforward and gentle. You can expect minimal discomfort during and after the process. This makes mini implants an appealing choice for those who want to avoid extensive surgery.
  • Cost-Effective and Affordable: While regular implants are a worthwhile investment, mini implants can be a more economical choice, allowing quality tooth replacement at a reasonable cost. Our team will provide a detailed treatment plan to help you make the best decision.
  • Immediate Stabilization: In many cases, your dental prosthetic can be attached to the mini implants on the same day, providing an instantly secure and functional smile. You can leave our office with renewed confidence in your smile.
  • Preserves Healthy Bone: The compact size of mini implants requires very little bone preparation, leaving more of your natural jawbone structure intact. This can be beneficial for patients with low bone density or other risk factors.
  • Versatile Applications: Whether you need to stabilize full or partial dentures, a bridge, or other dental prosthetics, mini implants offer a flexible solution to meet your needs. Their small size makes them highly adaptable for various restoration scenarios.

At Mason Dental, our skilled team will guide you through the process and help determine if mini implants are the ideal choice to restore your smile with confidence and ease. We provide both mini and regular dental implants, carefully considering your unique situation and desired outcome.

Mini Implants vs. Traditional Implants

While traditional dental implants are designed to replace individual missing teeth, mini implants serve primarily to stabilize and secure dentures, bridges, and other prosthetics. Here are some key differences:

  • Size: Mini implants have a smaller diameter, typically between 1.8mm and 3mm, compared to 3.5mm or larger for traditional implants.
  • Procedure: Placing mini implants is far less invasive, requiring no surgical flap and minimal bone reshaping.
  • Healing Time: With their smaller size, mini implants integrate with the jawbone faster, often allowing for immediate loading of prosthetics.
  • Versatility: While regular implants replace teeth, minis can support full arches, partial dentures, and other complex restorations.
