Mini Implants are made of titanium and are much thinner and smaller than conventional implants. The primary use for mini-implants is to retain dentures.
By adding fixed points dentures are much less likely to rock and move on eating.
Mini-implants are not suitable for single teeth restorations are multiple teeth bridges due to their size.
Mini implants can be used when there is a very small ridge (very little bone). Although not the treatment of choice of many dentists it may offer patients some help in retaining their denture.
Mini Dental implants cost around $3000 however it is best to ask for a more detailed analysis and cost.
