All About Mini Dental Implants

Shot,Of,A,Cheerful,Handsome,Man,Smiling,To,The,Camera If you’re the type of person who could benefit from a traditional dental implant but who cannot get one for whatever reason, mini dental implants are a viable option. They’re a new approach to teeth replacement that uses a one-piece screw instead of a conventional two-piece model.

The Advantages and Potential of Mini Dental Implants

The greatest benefit of a min dental implant is its easier placement. A mini dental implant can be placed using little more than a localized anesthetic. It’s less invasive, and many find it to be less painful as well.

This, of course, leads to a faster recovery time — something that many patients also love. This means that you won’t be dealing with dietary restrictions for quite as long, and you can resume living your life more or less as normal far faster.


In an over-arching sense, mini dental implants are also known for being a lower-cost alternative than their traditional counterparts. Despite this, they are not a “lower quality” option. It has to do with how they’re designed; mini dental implants are less expensive than traditional ones because they are smaller.

Ideal For Those With Less Jawbone

Finally, it’s important to note that more people are candidates for mini dental implants than traditional ones. You don’t need quite as much jawbone mass, which makes mini dental implants a great option for people dealing with a significant amount of tooth decay or who have lost a jawbone from a previous infection or injury.

Mini dental implants can also often be placed without bone grafting, allowing you to achieve the desired results with a fraction of the effort it would normally take.
