Mini Dental Implant Process Explained

Watch this video to learn about mini dental implant process from initial consultation, to evaluation, and placement of your new mini implants. 

How do we do mini implants? How do we deliver mini dental implants? Initially, you come for a consultation and your case is evaluated. Do you have the proper bone? Do you have the proper support for mini dental implants? A cone beam CBCT X-ray is taken. This X-ray is a three dimensional image which shows me height, width and depth; thickness of your bone; which then dictates the size of the implant that we’re going to use.

You come back for the next visit. I place the implant. We place a temporary onto the implant, and we wait one month to allow things to heal. One month period goes by. The implant is solid, the implant is secure. We take the temporary crown, temporary dentistry off, take the impression for the permanent dentistry. We replace the temporary. You come back in two weeks, we swap the temporary for the permanent dentistry.

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.
