At times there is an insufficient bone for placing regularly sized implants. There is a choice to try and add/expand/elevate the available bone, which can be complex and costly; the other option is to use smaller implants.
These “mini implants” are suitable for some patients, depending on where in the mouth they are used and the force likely to be applied to them. The procedure for placing the implants into the site which is missing teeth is often simpler and quicker than that of placing regular implants. These implants are a simple way to stabilize full dentures that move around.
Feel free to inquire whether you may be a candidate for mini implants.
