Mini dental implants, as the name suggests, are basically dental implants that are smaller than the vast majority of dental implants placed. They are not necessarily smaller in length, but smaller in diameter, compared to the standard implants, and so are often referred to as narrow diameter implants.

Just like standard implants, mini dental implants are also made of titanium, and they too replace the root of a tooth that has been lost. Mini implants are used mainly to support full dentures, though they are also used to support partial dentures and crowns.


Full Dentures, Upper and Lower:

Denture wearers are very well aware of the discomfort and limitations of full dentures- they move around and lift up off the gums whilst talking to people, eating, yawning. They have to use lots of denture adhesives to hold the dentures in place, and they hate the feel of all that adhesive in their mouth. They do not like all the bulk of plastic in their mouth, especially on their palate, which prevents them from enjoying their food.

Implants help stabilize the dentures and hold the dentures in position on the gums. However, very often, due to the bone having shrunk after the teeth are extracted, many patients are told that they do not have enough bone to fit the wider standard implants. In such cases, mini dental implants have the advantages that they can be placed in much narrower bone, often without any major gum surgery, are less expensive and the dentures can often be connected to the implants the same day.

Partial Dentures:

Mini dental implants can also help retain and stabilize partial dentures, and help eliminate ugly metal clasps that would otherwise be unavoidable and very visible.....more


Mini dental implants are sometimes used to support crowns, especially in areas where the available bone is too narrow for a standard, wider implant, or where the space available for replacing the missing tooth is very small. Since the procedures for placing crowns on mini dental implants is quicker and simpler than the standard implants, the cost of a crown on mini implants is also substantially less than on standard implants, and this is an additional factor for some patients choosing mini implants to support crowns.

At Pearl Dental Arts in Levitttown, we have been placing mini dental implants as well as standard, wider implants since 2004. We use the latest procedures and techniques, acquire continuous education to keep abreast of new developments and aim at imparting the optimum service to our patients.
