Mini dental implants are typical used to help stabilize dentures. They can also be used if the space is too small for a regular implant. Please consult your dental professional to see if you are the best candidate for this treatment. Thank you for your question.

Mini dental implants are a great solution for patients who have minimal bone structure for the conventional implants. Since they are small diameter implants, they may not integrate into bone as well as the wider conventional ones. I have many patients who are very satisfied with both, so if done properly on the right candidate mini dental implants are just as good and often less expensive.
