Mini-Dental Implants are very similar to traditional dental implants. They’re designed to rebuild both the root and the white crown of the original tooth; however, they’re smaller than the traditional version. The end of the implant is also shaped to look like a ball with an attached O-ring, which works to hold the denture securely in place for a comfortable and reliable fit. Mini implants are usually used to attach both dentures and bridgework for patients who are not interested in using a traditional, removable denture.
Dental implants have been around for over 25 years now, and they’ve experienced a lot of advancement in that time, including mini implants. Mini-Dental Implants have a lot more versatility than their traditional forms. They can be used to anchor dentures without requiring patients to undergo time-consuming bone grafting.
Mini implants are also more convenient and typically more affordable than traditional dental implants. Patients will be capable of enjoying all the benefits of implants, including preserved bone tissue, long-lasting permanence, and a strong rate of success over time.
In most cases, mini implants can be placed and restored over the course of a single day, which means you won’t have to spend a lot of time without your complete, functional smile.
