Is Bone Grafting Required for a Mini Dental Implant?

Watch this video to learn about when bone grafting is necessary for successful implant placement.

If we extract the tooth and we put the implant in the same visit, we then put bone grafting material into the area that we extracted to allow the bone to heal and to grow around the implant, at the time that we extract the tooth.

If you come and the tooth has already been extracted and it’s been missing for a while, we do not do bone grafting procedures to add bone to make enough bone to put the mini implant in. The only time we do bone grafting procedures is when we take the tooth out and put the implant in the same visit. Otherwise, bone grafting is not required to place many dental implants.

The Mini Dental Implant Advantage

Immediate Results

Because they are less invasive, and don’t require the lengthy healing time of traditional implants, they can typically be loaded with crowns, bridges and dentures immediately.

Less Healing Time & Fewer Visits

Because mini implants are much smaller, placing them is a less invasive procedure—requiring less healing time and discomfort, and fewer visits.

No More Decay

Mini implants are made out of titanium—the same type of material that is used on artificial joints, and they are not subject to decay or periodontal disease.
