At our dental clinic, we often hear patients express concern about dental implants. Luckily, traditional dental implants are not the only option.
Miniature Dental Implants – An Affordable Alternative
While they are not ideal for every patient, miniature dental implants are an affordable alternative to traditional implants. At EMA Dental, we have offered them to our patients for over 10 years.
Mini dental implants range between 1.8mm and 3mm. This can be compared to traditional implants which are typically 3.75mm in size. Mini implants can be installed in just one day.
There are many different benefits to choosing miniature dental implants over traditional implants:
- They provide security for removable dentures
- They take far less time to install
- They take less time to heal
- They are way more affordable (about half the price of traditional implants)
Types of Mini Implants
There are several different types of dental implants, including:
- Partial mini implants
- Full mini implants
- Supportive mini implants
Partial mini implants are ideal for replacing a small number of missing teeth. You will only need to visit our clinic one time to receive partial mini implants.
Full mini implants are ideal for an individual who needs an entire set of new teeth. Unfortunately, full mini implants will require more than one trip to our clinic.
Supportive mini implants are used with crowns, bridges, or dentures. They are intended to be a support for you tooth replacement procedure to make sure it is a success.
What Can You Expect From Us
Schedule a consultation with one of our dentists at EMA Dental so we can discuss your individual needs. This will give us a chance to make sure miniature implants are a good fit for you.
Smoking, heavy drinking and poor dental hygiene could mean you are a poor candidate for dental implants. Implants are a replacement for your natural teeth, and need to be treated as such. Bad habits are just going to ruin them like they ruin teeth.
When you come in for a consultation, we can go over whether or not these implants are a good fit for you.
