The Mini Dental Implant Advantage
Half The Size
Mini Implants are about half the size of traditional implant, and therefore don’t require as much bone. With less bone needed, costly, painful and time-consuming bone grafts are typically not required.
Half The Cost
In most cases, the mini dental implant procedure is less than half the cost of a traditional implant case, saving you money.
Preserves Bone Structure
Because they are less invasive, and don’t require the lengthy healing time of traditional implants, they can typically be loaded with crowns, bridges and dentures immediately.
Less Healing Time & Fewer Visits
Because mini implants are much smaller, placing them is a less invasive procedure—requiring less healing time and discomfort, and fewer visits.
No More Decay
Mini implants are made out of titanium—the same type of material that is used on artificial joints, and they are not subject to decay or periodontal disease.
