What is a mini dental implant?
Mini dental implants share several key characteristics of traditional types of dental implants. Both consist of titanium bases or screws that replace the roots of missing teeth, and both can be used to support crowns, bridges, or dentures, especially in edentulous patients.
Unlike standard implants, which require several weeks for the jawbone to heal between implant placement and prosthesis, mini implants usually consist of one simple, minimally invasive surgery in which the implants and dental prosthesis are placed in the same day, in as little as an hour.
