About Dental Implants
Dental implants are made of titanium metal that fuses with the jawbone through a process called “osseointegration.”
With proper care and routine checkups, your dental implants can last a lifetime.

HOW ARE MINI DENTAL IMPLANTS DIFFERENT FROM CONVENTIONAL IMPLANTS?
In many cases, mini implants cost around half the cost of traditional or conventional implants.
Because the mini implant requires only a small pilot hole to be placed, it is less traumatic to the bone and soft tissue; as compared to a traditional conventional implant that usually involves extensive surgery and bone grafts.
LESS HEALING TIME
Because placing the smaller diameter mini implant does not cause as much trauma to the bone and soft tissue in the mouth, your healing time is reduced from months to days.
Less trauma to the gums, bone and underlying tissue means less discomfort. Many patients need only over the counter pain medication for a day or so after the procedure.
In many cases, the mini implant can be loaded immediately after placement. This means that most procedures, including anchoring dentures can be done in one visit.
LESS BONE LOSS
A mini dental implant preserves the bone so that you can preserve the shape of your face.
LESS BONE REQUIRED
Mini implants require less bone so you’re less likely to need additional costly bone grafts.
