Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants, like full-sized implants, are used to replace missing teeth. They are a great option if you don’t have enough bone in your jaw for the full-sized version.

Key takeaways;

– Mini implants can be installed with fewer dental appointments. 

– They can replace your smaller teeth.

– Mini implants use small anchors in the jaw which require less invasive dentistry. 

– They are less expensive than standard implants.

Your dentist will determine if mini implants are a suitable option for you.
