When Should You Consider Mini Dental Implants?

Mini dental implants are a non-invasive alternative for replacing missing teeth when you are not a suitable candidate for regular implants. Your dentist can advise you whether mini dental implants are a suitable option in your situation.

Key takeaways:

  • Mini dental implants can be an option when you don’t qualify for regular implants due to low bone density.
  • Mini dental implants are a more cost-effective option as they can cost half the price of regular dental implants.
  • Regular implants with a crown can take weeks to complete, while mini dental implants can be placed in a single day.

“Mini dental implants do not require multiple visits and have a much faster recovery time since the process is non-invasive.”
