Mini Implants: Quick, Simple, and Affordable Tooth Replacement Solution.
Need a quick replacement for a smaller tooth such as an incisor? A mini implant may be the best solution for your needs. Mini implants are roughly half the width of regular implants. As a result, they have become a less costly and more immediate alternative for replacing smaller teeth or teeth within narrow spaces.
How Mini Implants differ from traditional implants.
Since mini implants don’t contain screws, there’s no need for them to be fully submerged. This makes mini implants simpler to replace, if required. They are often recommended for patients who would not be good candidates for traditional implants. These mini versions of full-sized implants also work well for anchoring loose dentures.
The benefits of Mini Implants.
Their easier placement, affordability, and smaller size make mini implants a practical and popular replacement method compared to their full-sized counterparts. In particular, the less invasive replacement procedure makes these smaller implants a safer and faster alternative.
Are Mini Implants right for your needs?
If you currently wear dentures and you are dissatisfied with their comfort or fit, or if you have been told you need dentures or a full-sized implant, ask your Northern Virginia Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Associates dentist about mini implants as a safer and more affordable alternative. Depending on which of your teeth needs replacing, this smaller, less invasive option may be a great solution.
