What Are Mini Dental Implants?

Mini dental implants, like traditional dental implants, are a permanent tooth replacement option that uses an implant post to replace one or more missing teeth. However, mini dental implants are significantly smaller, up to half the size of a traditional dental implant post.

You may need a dental implant due to significant tooth decay, broken teeth, or missing teeth. With mini implants, our skilled dentist can complete treatment in a single appointment so you can quickly get back to living your life. Additionally, when combined with our quality restorations, mini implants provide natural-looking results.

Benefits of Mini Implants

Because mini dental implants are smaller, they can be a good option for those who don't qualify for traditional dental implants. When placed by our trained and experienced dentist, mini dental implants have a success rate of over 95% and can help improve your overall dental health. Some of the additional benefits of mini dental implants include:

  • Being less invasive, meaning a faster recovery time compared to traditional dental implants
  • Requiring less jawbone density than traditional implants
  • Restoring function to your smile, making it easier to speak and eat
  • Stopping teeth from shifting out of place and preventing jawbone weakening
  • Creating an aesthetically pleasing smile that helps boost your confidence

The Mini Dental Implants Process

A major draw of mini implants is the ability of our team to complete them in a single appointment. Our caring and experienced staff is specially trained to assist with your mini dental implant treatment, and you can expect us to support you throughout the process. Our process can be broken down into three main steps:

  1. Consultation and Pre-Op: Our dentist will carefully listen to your needs and work closely with you to develop a plan that helps you reach your dental health goals. We will take detailed images, including x-rays, to determine exactly where your implants need to go. Our dentist will also take precise impressions of your smile in order to craft your custom restoration.
  2. Implant Placement: Depending on whether you're missing one tooth or many, we will place one or more implant posts. Because the procedure is less invasive than traditional dental implant placement, you will likely only require local anesthesia.
  3. Restoration Placement: Whether you're missing a single tooth or several, our team will craft your restoration to become a seamless part of your smile. A mini implant can be used with a crown or bridge or to stabilize dentures.

FAQs About Mini Dental Implants

When deciding on a solution for your missing teeth or severely damaged teeth, it's natural to have questions about your options. Our team is here to address your concerns, and our dentist will provide detailed instructions about what to expect from the process. Some of the most common questions our team receives about mini dental implants include:

What does recovery look like after a mini dental implant placement?

Because mini dental implants are a less invasive way to replace missing teeth, many patients can return to normal activities within 1-2 days after their procedure. You may experience some pain and soreness following placement, but ice and over-the-counter pain relievers can help manage discomfort.

You should care for your mini dental implants the same way you would care for your natural teeth. It's important to brush, floss, and continue regular dental checkups so our dentist can ensure the integrity of your implants.

Mini dental implants can last many years without needing repairs or replacements. Because they are smaller than traditional implants, they may be less durable and require you to be more diligent with your oral care.
