How is a mini implant different from a conventional implant?

Less Expensive:

In many cases, mini implants cost around half the cost of traditional or conventional implants.

Less Invasive:

Because the mini implant requires only a small pilot hole to be placed, it is less traumatic to the bone and soft tissue; as compared to a traditional conventional implant that usually involves extensive surgery and bone grafts.

Less Healing Time:

Because placing the smaller diameter mini implant does not cause as much trauma to the bone and soft tissue in the mouth, your healing time is reduced from months to days.

Less Discomfort:

Less trauma to the gums, bone and underlying tissue means less discomfort. Many patients need only over the counter pain medication for a day or so after the procedure.

Less Time:

In many cases, the mini implant can be loaded immediately after placement. This means that most procedures, including anchoring dentures can be done in one visit.

Less Bone Loss:

A mini dental implant preserves the bone so that you can preserve the shape of your face.

Less Bone Required:

Mini implants require less bone so you’re less likely to need additional costly bone grafts.
