Mini Implants

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

For patients who are edentulous (with no teeth), mini implants may be an ideal method to stabilize your dentures. In orthodontics, mini implants are used to assist in rapid movement and positioning of teeth. The improvement achieved in fit, function, and stability can be dramatic.

Generally, mini implants do not require as much bone as a regular sized implant (they are a smaller size). Also, mini implants often require minimal surgical intervention. This also means less trauma!

If you have a partial or complete denture or even a missing tooth, you may be a candidate for mini dental implants.
