Mini dental implants are a 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 while full implants are typically 4-5mm in diameter.
Mini-implants are not always recommended by the dentists at EMA Dental since they depend 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.
