What is a Mini Dental Implant?

Watch this video to learn about mini dental implants and how they are less expensive, less invasive, require less bone, and less healing time. Less is more with mini dental implants!

Implants are made from titanium. The difference in category between a conventional root form implant and a mini implant is the diameter, the size of the implant. That is what categorizes them as many implants. Any implant that is three millimeters in diameter or bigger is categorized as a root form or a conventional implant. Any implant smaller than three millimeters in diameter is categorized as a mini implant.

Both are made out of titanium. Both are very strong. Both are biocompatible, which is the reason why they’re made out of titanium. The smaller diameter allows us to place an implant into bone that is not big enough to support the large root form implants. The value of that is that it saves on additional dental procedures, particularly bone grafting procedures.

Because instead of building bone to make more bone volume to support the large root form implants, we just use the bone that’s already there, which is enough bone to support the smaller diameter mini 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.
