Used to replace a tooth or to stabilize a denture, dental mini implants can be used when there is not enough natural bone for traditional dental implants.
True to their name, mini dental implants are smaller than traditional dental implants. In fact, their circumference is similar to that of a toothpick. Even though mini dental implants mimic regular dental implants, they cost a lesser amount money, cause a lesser amount of pain, and require a lesser amount of healing time.
The main function of mini dental implants is to secure dentures. Mini implants clip into the dentures with special attachments that prevent the dentures from slipping or irritating the gums. By stabilizing the dentures, mini dental implants can improve chewing and speaking ability.
