Saving you time, saving you money
The mini dental implant procedure is a much less involved process than conventional dental implants but just as permanent. Mini implants also provide a faster solution than conventional implants, sometimes completed in only one simple visit. In addition to less dental office visits, the minimally invasive experience usually requiring no surgical flaps or sutures, typically provides far less discomfort, and virtually no pain for patients. Finally, by saving all this time, your dentist is able to offer the mini dental implant procedure at a fraction of the cost associated with the larger conventional dental implants.

Placement of the implants is accomplished quickly and easily in a process performed in the dentist’s office, with local anesthesia or a light sedation to help make you more comfortable. Using a precise, controlled, and minimally-invasive surgical technique, mini dental implants are placed into the jawbone. It is a one-step procedure that requires no sutures, and most people begin using their teeth the same day. This is a major advantage over conventional implants which typically require multiple visits, multiple surgeries, and longer healing time.
In many cases, mini implants are considered just as strong - if not stronger - than natural teeth. Minis provide patients with full functionality and after treatment, they will be able to enjoy all of their favorite foods while benefiting from healthy, aesthetically-pleasing prosthetic teeth.
Mini implants can often be as little as half the cost of traditional implants, however the actual cost of implant treatment depends on many individual factors. These include the quality, amount, location of bone, number of teeth that need to be replaced, the type of implant that will be appropriate, and the number of implants needed to support these teeth. Every case is unique and a consultation with your dentist is needed to determine what is right for you.
Anyone who is healthy enough to undergo a tooth extraction is likely a suitable candidate for mini dental implants. Patients with certain conditions, such as chronic diseases, heavy smoking, or alcohol abuse may not be candidates for implants. Your doctor will determine whether or not this treatment is right for you after a complete physical exam and evaluation of your medical history.
