Modeled after dental implants, Mini-Implants are a simpler alternative to tooth loss and can be ready to be used quicker and can be installed with a less invasive fitting method than traditional implants. Generally, without having to create an incision into the gums, Mini-implants can often be placed directly into the jawbone, unlike traditional implants. Roughly the size of a standard wooden toothpick, the mini-implants are often used when the jawbone will not support standard implants. One of our doctors attaches the mini-implants to the jawbone, similar to a screw into wood, and patients can usually use them the same day to eat, drink, and chew. The choice between Implants and Mini-Implants should be carefully researched, and a qualified dentist would be able to give the best advice as to which path to take.
