Mini Implants

Mini implants are the latest in dental implantology. Not only are these implants cost-effective, but they allow implant-supported restorations to be placed where standard implants may not be possible. They can be as small as 1.8 mm in diameter.

The procedure of applying mini implants is different from the procedure of applying traditional implants. The good thing is that the procedure can be completed within a day.

These types of implants require expertise in dental implant placement and restorations. When you come to Dr. Elizabeth Kilpatrick-Fox’s practice for your consultation, we will answer all your questions and concerns so you can make an informed decision about your care.

Mini implants add stability to dentures making them fit properly in the wearer’s mouth. They were approved by the FDA in 2003 after clinical procedure and have been used successfully since then. The new tooth will look like your natural teeth and perform the same.

Mini Implants vs. Standard Implants

Mini implants are made of a titanium alloy like standard implants, but, as the name suggests, are smaller in size compared to the standard ones. They are half the diameter of usual implants. The advantage of these is that the placement procedure is a lot less invasive and doesn’t cost as much as well. Though these implants are a lot smaller in size, they are strong enough to withstand the normal chewing force.

Dr. Fox may suggest the placement of mini implants if you have lost a small tooth such as an incisor. These implants are ideal for patients who need to stabilize lower jaw dentures or pre-molar teeth. With proper care, mini implants will last a lifetime.
