Mini dental implants are the smaller version of full implants, making them a cheaper option that still allows improvements in comfort and stability when needed. Both mini and full implants are screws that are made from a strong titanium alloy that is fused into the jawbone for a strong fit.
The main difference between mini and full implants is their size; mini-implants are 3mm in diameter, full implants are typically 4-5mm in diameter.
Top Benefits of Mini-Implants:
• Great for securing removable dentures thanks to their small size and versatility with placement
• Takes less time to put in then full implants because of the smaller size
• Less healing time then full implants
• More affordable compared to full implants, about half the cost
Mini-implants are not always recommended by the dentists at EMA Dental since it depends on the area that needs stability in the mouth. They offer consultations for patients interested in mini-implants and will advise what they feel best fits the patient’s budget and will get the ideal results.
